go head down?... and drop?



I will be 32 weeks on Tuesday, & all day today when Erica moves and kicks, I have to take a minute because it hurts, It feels like she is kicking right between my breasts. I wasnt sure if shes just trying to get more comfortable and it just feels like her feet are upward, or if its posible that she is already head down.

If the majority of her movements are high she's more then likely already head own. Now for dropping its hard to tell . Some babies drop early at like 34-36 weeks others wait till labor . My oldest dropped at 34 weeks my second didn't drop till labor and my third dropped at 36 weeks .

Today is actually the first day any of her movements have been so high up like that, and painful. Before i would always feel her around my belly button or right above it, and now i feel as if she is going to kick my heart, LMAO!

Babies are constantly moving. I had an u/s at 19 weeks head down, 26 breech, 27 head down again. Dropping varies. Dd1 dropped at 36 weeks. Dd2 I only made it to 35 weeks and she never dropped she just sat low te whole time.
