i have a lot of pressure down there. it does become very uncomfortable and painful at times like im carrying a 10 lb bowling ball. still not due for another 2 1/2 weeks.
—Guest Jordan


As of this morning I am 35wks, this is my 3rd child. I have never literally felt the pain of my 2boys "dropping" but this little girl I've had trouble from the start. So this dropping pain not only is my lowerback in horrible pain but my hips & vaginal area are too :( she's going to be my biggest baby of all I believe. Even though I am 5"1 85pds originally I've always vaginally delivered my oldest 2 were over 7pds so will see I hope she's here before christmas eve!!!

The Drop

I am 26 1/2 weeks. Last night got up to go to the bathroom and when I did I felt my boy literally drop. I thought he must have been sleeping really hard. He was so mad started kicking and punching. I was worried but felt him moving normally but this evening I noticed that above where my bump use to start it is now flat. It was a strange feeling just wondering if anyone else has had this.

31 weeks prego!

I'm 31 weeks today and I'm scared I won't know when he drops.. This whole pregnancy I've been carrying extremely low. A fellow friend who is only 2 days more pregnant than me just had her son drop. I haven't had any crazy pregnancy symptoms like most people. In fact I wouldn't have known I was prego if I hadn't missed my period. I haven't had any pains other than him on sciatic nerve.. I'm obviously very pregnant now but he is always been so low.. Well guess we will see what happens!

Dropped @ 31weeks

I had no clue my baby girl had dropped intell I seen my dr. I went into preterm labor at 29 weeks and was dilated to 1cm and softened. I was put on bedrest. This week I'm 32 and I'm feeling prusher and lots of pain in my vagina :/ this is my first child. After going into preterm labor I'm so scared my baby only weights about 4 pounds and it's way to earlie

33 weeks

I worked 8 hours yesterday & could not wait to get home & lay down, but by the time I did I felt like I was dying! Pretty sure this little boy has dropped, all night have had cramps, along with the most horrible bone on bone pains in my hip & pelvic area! His hiccups felt like they were coming out of my vagina, pee constantly & I can feel it in my butt when he moves now. It even hurts when I stay still :/
—Guest kara

My baby dropped at 38 weeks. I'm almost 40 weeks and I lost my mucous plug two weeks ago and still nothing.
—Guest hurrybaby


Hey so I'm 38 weeks pregnant with a girl and my baby dropped at 33 weeks. My hips,thighs---basically everything from my belly button down pains up. I'm just wondering if it's alright that she's dropped five weeks ago without me even being dialated..? I wanna hold her in my arms already too:/
