Means the baby is lower in your pelvis. Normally happens a few weeks before you have the baby.

That doesen't mean your going to have the baby. Plenty of people drop and go to full term

when u drop, it means babies head is more towards your pubic bone compared to "floating" in your tummy area

It means your baby has descended further into your pelvis to prepare for delivery.

If your baby is hardly moving then I would be concerned. Pain is normal in pregnancy, but if it's pain that is causing you to double over then I would go get checked out. But the not moving is enough for me to go to L&D. How long has it been since you felt the baby???



If you ever go 24 hours without feeling he/she move then you need to go in. Make sure to do your kick count! Good luck. I hope everything is ok and LO stays put.

I am 33 weeks and i have droped and i have went into premature labor. i was told if u dont feel the baby move lay on ur left side and wait a few mins. she/he should move at least 10 times in 2 hours. if u dont feel the baby move dont get worried rite away. i didnt feel my daughter move for two days and i went to the hospital to find out that she was fine and that the placenta was acting as a big pillow and stoping me from feeling her.so try the laying on your side first and if still nothing then go to the hospital.its scary to go into premature labor. but i been there twice in a month so far.
