Ok, this is a question for all you mommies out there that already had children or new mommies that may know this answer....if there even is one.......

This is baby #3 for me but all of my babies are 7 years apart so everytime I get pregnant I feel like a first timer and forget everything.....

Question: For a 3rd pregnancy....once your baby drops does that mean labor is around the corner like within a week or so or does it not matter.....I know 1st timers you could be dropped for a month or so but I wasn't sure if after a few pregnancies this means something......I ask because I have been told by 4 different people on 4 different occasions this week alone that I have dropped......plus my pressure that I get makes sense......what do you all think about this? Trying to plan my labor.........

I've heard that only FTMs drop before labor and BTDT moms don't drop at all before labor....this is my third though and I'm pretty sure she has dropped because of the immense pressure and how my belly shape has changed. I think everyone is different though. I think either way the baby can drop but it doesn't mean labor will happen soon in either a first or subsequent pregnancy.

I have also heard that most women that have BTDT don't drop until labor starts. I am sure there are exceptions though. I never dropped with my 2nd and haven't with this one either.

I do believe every pregnancy is different though and just because most people don't until birth doesn't mean it doesn't happen earlier for some.

I dropped about a month before with my first and I am on the fourth pregnancy and dropped and I am still about 3 weeks from my official due date. I think it can be different with each pregnancy.
