there is no tell-tale time. baby can drop weeks before he/she arrives and for some women baby may not drop until they are in active labor. my first son dropped 3wks before i delivered him and my 2nd dropped about a week and half before i had him.

i read that anywhere from 4-5 weeks labor can start after your baby has dropped.  I have dropped, too. This happened last week!

Good luck!!!!

I had my ob appt today and he told me that my baby dropped already.  I didn't even noticed any change.  I do feel more pressure on my bladder but I just thought it was baby growing.

I'm 31 weeks, and just last week, my belly dropped (I have pics up on my profile)...usually for me that means I have 3-4 weeks left and I'm due Feb 16th!!!!  I've as well had tons of white discharge, the day it started dropping, I was have pieces of my mucus plug coming out (sorry TMI)...I'm just praying I make it to 36 weeks atleast, but that's still 5 weeks away!!!!!  

I'm waddling like a penguin, i have to hold my back when I walk and it's very embarrassing!!  

See, my problem was, at 12 weeks, 20 weeks and 28 weeks, the baby was breeched...I went to the ER at 29 weeks and my doctor did an U/S and we noticed it was vertex :)  But I instantly dropped 2-3 days after that appointment!!  I have my 32 weeks checkup coming up on the 23rd and HOPEFULLY find outthe sex of the baby...it's been holding itself, so we couldn't find out~

But i wish you all the luck in the world and hopefully I'm not goingto have this baby in January!!!

I dont think Jaxson has dropped yet.. Or if he has, I havent noticed..


I am not sure if that "dropping" is any sign or indication of when labor may arrive? =)

I have my 36 weeks appt. (even though I am closer to 37 weeks) today. We shall see..

I hope everyone is hanging in.. I  am getting super anxious!

with my first baby at 36 wks i was in hospital because i had started bleeding and was told baby was fine and not even engaged so i had no reason to worry and was told to go home but before i was even changed i got the urge to push and baby was born 40 mins later my seconed baby stopped growing at 29 wks so i was in hospital and at 33 wks whilst getting monitored i was informed i was in labour never no mention of the head being engaged it was more break my waters and of i go. im currently 34 wks with my 3rd and last baby and again everything is completely different so i dont think there is any way of telling whats going to happen or when but good luck to everyone hope all goes well
