My doctor did a check on me last week on Friday. And said that she was head down healthy and everything. 1/2 cent. Dilated. But shes not fully dropped. I am 39 Weeks and 3 days today. And my due date is Saturday the 22nd, Should I be worried that she hasn't dropped yet ? ?

No.some babies don't drop until you're in active labor

Nope. It could happen very quickly.

Nope, no need to worry. She can drop and you can go from .5cm dilated to 10cm dilated in a few hours. It's no indication of when labor will start. Some women just go like a horse outta a starting gate.

Nope. She may not drop until you are already way into labor. I had to "force" DS to drop with pushing and changing positions after I had been in labor for several hours already.
