Does dropping mean labor is soon?? Phoenix & Kaia's mommy! Due February 15 (girl); 1 child; Tennessee 918 posts

I am 30 weeks and have been dropping since about 27 weeks. Everyone keeps saying that he will be here sooner than expected. Because he is dropping does that mean that I am close to labor?? I also have lots of pressure on my vagina and sharp pains there too. what could this mean??

your baby will come when he/she is ready. I carried pretty low and had a lot of pains like that but I didn't have my son early. You will be having lots of signs that labor is coming but it could still be weeks away.

Just means the baby has dropped down a bit, usually from your pelvic bones spreading. It doesn't mean anything though. With my 1st I dropped the week before I had him, the 2nd was about a month & this one I just dropped this past week, at 35 weeks.

dropping just means your babies head is lower in your pelvis. doesn't it feel great??? LOL nothing like a tiny noggin lodged in your nooner.
No it does not mean labor it near.

you're stupid if you want your baby to come a month and seven days early. that's the most idiotic thing i've heard a pregnant woman say. your dr. may have said it's ok to have the baby at 34 weeks...yes chances of survival are more than 95%...but that doesn't mean baby won't spend time in the nicu...or have breathing problems. you should stop being so selfish and hope your baby comes out when he's supposed to.
