I wouldnt worry about it.  The doctors will notice on Friday when you go.  I just got back from the Dr's and My Sarah has already dropped and they said her head is engaged??? I'm not quite sure that that means but i'm sure i'll find out  LOL

Good luck friday
Keep us posted

Girl, I would be glad!!!!  I wish my baby would drop right on out as I am getting so tired of being pregnant!!!  It is normal for the baby to drop and to get head down in the birth canal.  As long as your not having contractions, I would not worry a bit!!  You should be going to the doc every other week so they are probably keeping a close check on things.
