BTDT moms: when was the earliest your other dropped?

I am 31 weeks and she dropped this past week... I be lucky to make it to 36 weeks ... On the bright side already have mostly her things ready and my bags almost packed. She is measuring a week ahead w her weight a few weeks ahead so we will see. Lots of pressure down there but can breathe better and heartburn gone yay.

Both of mine dropped by 30 weeks, and they were born in the 37th and 39th weeks. It doesn't necessarily mean anything.

Tobias dropped last week (I posted pictures on here) but as of today he is almost sideways! They can change positions quite easily for the next few weeks. Typically they drop for good 3-4 weeks before delivery but that isn't always the case.

You never know. I dropped at 32 weeks last time. I thought for sure my son would come early because he was measuring so big. After my last ultrasound, the tech measured him to be 2-3 weeks ahead. Of course, he still stayed in there until 41 weeks. He was just a big 10lber.

I'm not sure I could drop any lower than I already am. Never meant anything for me in terms of when I delivered.

I wouldn't worry about dropping mean you will go into labor soon. Changing positions can change the way your tummy looks.

I don't remember dropping with DS. But I'm not sure people who appear low have even dropped. With successive pregnancies, everything that suspends things is more stretched out, hence making you hang low potentially.

Keep in mind there is "carrying lower" and "dropping" as well. My little man dropped 3 weeks ago, I look right now like I did at 39 weeks with my son as far as how low he is. I dropped about 3 days before DS1 was born.

With dropping you'll feel cervix and often rectal pain. I also notice my thighs hurt. The "bowling ball between your legs" feeling. I can't sit on anything without my stomach putting a lot of pressure on my legs. He's so low he's causing me to have poor circulation in my legs so they go numb easily and swell a lot.
