I am 29 week tomorrow and I know that I have dropped. Ugghh. People say it is good to drop as the baby is out of your lungs. I hate the belly touching any part of my leg though when I sit. (Hope that makes sense).
I'm not sure...I don't remember ever noticeably dropping with DD. I just feel really big all over.
Some people carry like they have a cute little basketball tucked under their shirt and you can't even tell they're pregnant from behind...not me. I get BIG. My waist is non-existent, and I have baby up in my ribs AND down on my lap. I'm just under 32 weeks now, and my midwife says he's measuring exactly on time and will most likely be about the same size as DD at birth - she was 7 lbs 15 oz. I look exactly the same as I did when I was pregnant with her.
I feel extremely large...but when I sit my belly also rests on my thighs. I hate that! But I still have a lot of pressure in my chest, so I think I'm just big! He is welcome to drop when he is ready, because I would love to be able to breathe again!

I don't at all feel that the baby has dropped, he is all over the place position-wise. But I have been carrying really low all along. He is not up in my ribs. I am only 28-29 weeks though and very tall so i have a lot of torso for him to move around in, lol. I have been feeling more higher-up movements as he grows and I think it will continue to be like that for at least another few weeks!
Not yet, and we couldn't quite tell at my appt today which way baby was facing (I have a lot of padding to feel through). I wouldn't mine a little bit more breathing room as I've been carrying super high, but dropping just makes it all seems like things are coming too soon! lol
