I'm 27 weeks w/my first so I don't have personal experience w/dropping, but a couple of close gal pals described it as significant pressure/weight on the pelvic region, and increased discharge (including some mucus from the plug, for some). All of them said that their bellies definitely seemed lower, but if you've been carrying low all along I would imagine it would be hard to tell the difference. I've been carrying quite high so I am expecting it to look different if/when I drop.... hope this helps!! Best wishes to you, you're almost there!!

When does the baby typically drop?  I'm about 29 weeks now.

i just asked my friend the same question (this is my first baby-i'm 30 weeks).  she said that she felt a lot of sudden pressure in her pelvis area and could breath better because baby was much lower.

i am worried because my baby has been laying sideways with her feet up over her head.  i hope she gets into position in time!!

Hmmm. honestly, this last week my stomach has gotten lower and I've gotten alot of pelvic pain (like things were being stretched to the MAX) but I've thought it was just some bad round ligament pain.

Yesterday my mom made the comment that my stomach was lower, but I don't really think he's dropped yet. I still get kicks near my ribs.

I felt A LOT of pressure in my pelvic area...then soon after, I felt lots of movement in pelvic area too.  I'm 37 weeks and dropped around 35 weeks.
