Baby dropping? Amber*MommaOfTwo Due March 28 (boy); 1 child; Pennsylvania 547 posts

So, I'm 34 weeks and a day, and pretty certain baby dropped the night before last. Yesterday, I had to pee like every single time I stood up, and I had to get up three times last night to pee. Both are completely new this pregnancy! I also have a lot of vag pressure today, which I haven't had a single time either! The only thing that happened once before, and has been an all day occurrence.. I have the urge to poo, but actually can't. And haven't been able to since yesterday morning.



So, I hear that babies don't often drop long before labor in subsequent pregnancies. Is that true? The only pregnancy I have to go by is my daughters. I dropped New Year's Day, and my water broke the next day. At 29 weeks.



What are some of your baby dropping stories with your 2nd+ babies. I'd reallyyyy appreciate him baking for another 4 weeks! Even if it's not the 5 weeks and 2 days until my scheduled section. ; )

Ds didn't drop until I was in activ labor at 42 weeks, dd dropped at 32 weeks and didn't arrive until 41 weeks. I was a whole lot of uncomfortable that pregnancy.

Yes sorry. I forgot to specify. So my second baby dropped early but still stayed in there another 9 weeks.

My first I dropped at my baby shower 28 weeks at 29 weeks I went into preterm labor. They stopped it till 34 when my water broke.



This pregnancy I dropped at 31 weeks and went into preterm labor at 32 they held my labor off till 35 then stopped and now I am almost 37 weeks and will be induced at 38 due to medical complications if I don't go on my own before hand.

My first dropped at 29 weeks when I went into labour and my water broke, fortunately they stopped that labour and my water resealed but he never went back up as he had completely engaged. My second dropped at 32 weeks, 34 weeks, and 37 weeks, each time I had gone into labour a few hours later but when they stopped the labour she climbed back up until the final time at 38 weeks. My third never dropped or engaged until I was 10 cm and pushing because he had such a short cord.
