Baby dropping in second pregnancy - how long until labor?

My baby dropped about a week ago, I thought. The OB confirmed today that he did drop. With my first pg, my girl didn't drop so this is all new to me. My question is how long after your baby dropped did you go into labor with a second pregnancy?  (I know with a first pg, it could be weeks.)
Thanks! I know a baby will come the baby is ready but I thought it might be fun to find out what others have experienced with dropping in second pregnancies.

Like you, with my first (a daughter) I don't remember her ever dropping. With my second, my son dropped a whole MONTH a head of time LOL

This little one dropped (but not as much as my son 2-3 weeks ago. My EDD is 11/15.

Yep...and this baby is going to be just like her older siblings and go over :) My doctor is out of town until tomorrow and I see her Thursday morning. If I haven't delivered by then, she will put me in to the hospital for an induction. I thought she was going to induce before she went out of town but she decided not to...

I told my husband our baby is waiting until we have EVERYTHING ready for her...and he replied "So, you're an elephant?" LOL because there are some things we plan to do to the nursery that we can't do right now...and if I carry her until we can I will be pregnant forever (though NOT as long as an elephant).
