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
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 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.
