Anyone else experienced dropping yet or before with previous pregnancies?

A couple weeks ago baby girl dropped ever so slightly. It wasn't alot but I noticed. Well today she has dropped twice and I think its more noticeable than before. Being only 35 weeks and this my third full term baby it makes me wonder if we are in for an early delivery. I texted my BFF the pictures LOL asking if she saw it haha. I also feel like I have the flu today upset stomach, diarrhea, tired, achy, and last night was having some contractions... I have a dr appointment on Thursday so I guess we will see what the Dr says. BFF thinks I should pack my bags

You are NOT NOT NOT allowed to have your baby before me!


Allison's so low that I haven't noticed really. Erin and Patrick didn't until labor. The only baby I really noticed drop was Cora, and that was the day before she died.

From everything I've read, first time moms can drop up to a month before giving birth. Second (or more) time moms though, "usually" only drop a few hours to a couple days before giving birth! I haven't dropped yet. But your "symptoms" sound just like me since last night!!! (And that is exactly how I fel the night before and day that I went into labor with Moose!!)

As you already have a history of PTL, I think you should probably pack your bags too. (I did mine this time early. With Moose, I did it the morning I gave birth, while in labor. But I thought I should be better prepared this time, as I imagine it'll only be me and Moose home alone.)

Good luck. I'm curious to hear what your doc will say.

I dropped at least a week or so before labor with both of my girls, but I can't remember exactly when.

Thanks for the comments ladies. Brittanie I don't think this is it... I am sure Allison will arrive before Kaitlynn . I am only 35 weeks, so not trying to have her yet. I guess only time will tell.

I never noticed a drop with Danica, although she was engaged at my 38 week appointment.

I felt like he dropped the other day. Suddenly the pressure increased right behind my pelvic bone, the pain in my right ribs was gone and I could breathe!! But, I guess it was only temporary, cause it all came back the next day

He does feel and look a little lower still though.

Yeah they can go up and down if they aren't fully engaged. I haven't checked to see if she moved back up or not. Its possible.

DS dropped around 36 weeks but he was my first. He dropped so far that I felt like he was just going to fall out while I was walking..lol.
