When a baby drops? Maria + Cory = Alexis 17 kids; Middleport, Ohio 1075 posts

When a baby drops is it a sudden change or do they gradually drop? And when should a baby begin to drop?

It all depends on the baby. Some drop gradually, some drop all at once, and as far as WHEN...some don't drop until labor, some drop earlier. There is no "correct" answer for this because it differs from baby to baby.

I never knew my baby dropped. But at my baby shower when I was 37 weeks, everyone told me I looked like I did. *Shrugs* :?

Okay thanks.



I asked Cory today if I looked like the baby was dropping, I am 35 weeks. He said she looked a little lower but I don't really notice any difference. She still seems to be laying with her back at my left side which is where she pretty much stays at,

i got told you know the baby has dropped when you can fit a clenched hand inbetween your b**bs & the start of your bump. mine dropped suddenly at 27 weeks & hes been there since but its not been painful unless i walk to far. but hes now fully engaged has been for 6 weeks
