Carrying Low....

Today after fighting with my razor and belly, I noticed that my tummy seemed a bit lower than before. Then a little later my neighbor said she thinks I'm dropping already. Sounds silly, but what does this mean?? And at what point in the pregnancy does this normally happen?? I'm almost 31 weeks

Baby dropping is the baby moving down in your pelvis. Are you peeing more often? If your baby has dropped you should be feeling a ton of pressure. Im not 100% but I think its normal anywhere between the last ten weeks for baby to drop just means they're getting in labor position (:

I'm 32 weeks and everyone told me the same thing. I asked the doctor is she head down, and she's head up but turned slightly to the side so I look lower

Ok thanks ladies. I looked it up, I got nervous because I don't want to go too early!!!

And yes, my god, I am peeing more with slight pressure but nothing alarming.
