What does it mean when a baby dropped? Alana Kae Due December 19; 1 child; Las Vegas, Nevada 27 posts

Last night i believe my baby dropped. He is much lower then yesterday, i can breath better, my belly button isnt sticking out as much as it was, also my hips "connecters" hurt so so so bad. Does this mean he dropped? if so what does that mean in terms of when he might come?

Uhhhhh usually they dont drop that soon. You still have 2 months to go.

your baby still has enough room in there to move a little so, the baby could be turned sideways, which relieves some pressure from your lungs and makes it easier for you to breath.

I normally wouldnt think twice but i already have been carring low and now you can completely notice a difference and i dont think he is sideways cuz i could feel his head or butt by pressing on my sides if he was.

I've carried both my kids really low. Whe the baby drops I always got that OMG they are gonna fall out feeling. IDK, everyone is different I guess.

So its possible for you to drop just a few parts of the way? Such as 3/4th's of the way sort of thing?

I know what you mean.. My baby keeps getting lower and lower everyday but my baby is sitting breech right now. I'm 37 weeks and 5 days. Doctor has scheduled a c section at 39 weeks but I'm wondering if I wait to 40 weeks if he will turn on his own.. any advice???
