How do you know that baby has "dropped" ?? A Star Eden 3 kids; Chicago, Illinois 302 posts

Crazy because this is my third baby but I still can't understand how one knows whether baby has dropped. I am not due 'til mid december but I swore today that the baby may be ready to come out soon (painful feeling of cramps - a feeling of something poking me down low towards the way out). Soooooo... when I went to the doctor today I asked him to check down there and he originally didn't want to - saying he has no reason to believe I am anywhere near ready. Awkward thing because I basically felt like I ordered him to stick his finger up me to check my cervix. When he did, he said that the baby didn't even drop yet! I was super shocked.



So how do you know. I thought I dropped weeks ago.

I found that when i dropped my belly didnt look as high and iam wobbleing when i walk. Feels like im sitting on the babys head also i find that i can not get dressed standing up as it hurts to lift my leg to put in jeans or leggings what ever im wearing lol. . I have been like this for weeks now as due rather soon. But other people feel different with each pregnancy. Do you need toilet alot? x

I could just tell, she's been low the entire time but when I dropped at 32 weeks I felt more pain in my cervix, a lot more pressure and waddling lol, I started to pee constantly, and you could just tell! :) You'll know!2eygkeb.jpg

Also the baby doesn't have to drop to feel pain in your cervix, She started kicking me down there at 17 weeks! :)

Hmm. Thanks for letting me know your experience. Lately I feel like I cannot lift my legs(and especially the inner thigh - almost groin area - is in soooo much pain as well as outer thighs. Plus that feeling of a jab happening far too often down there.
