Baby drop...

How long after the baby drop did it take for labor to begin? I am pushing 36 weeks and this guy is LOW! I feel so much pressure in my sacrum and it feels like some one is trying to rip my girly parts in half. My co worker told me that she didn't think I would make it much longer because of how much I have dropped already, but I didn't think there was much correlation to that thought. So, what has your experience been? Did you walk around with a bowling ball between your legs for weeks, or did things happen earlier. I am sure the answers will vary greatly, but it will be fun to see how our bodies handle the decent of baby!

Re: Baby drop...

With number one (my only boy) he dropped about 3 weeks before. With my girls they never dropped until labor was far along.

Re: Baby drop...

DD didn't drop before labor. I thought that was odd, but dropping after dilating seems to be actually common.

A friend of mine walked around with a bowling ball dropped down for weeks.. she was in some pain

My friend due in March turns 37 weeks on Thursday and baby is at -3. But, they aren't expecting much.. although she's hurting, so I think she's hoping.

My DS started to drop about 24 hours before I went into labor (I really felt like he was going to fall out of my behind...it was bizarre and terribly uncomfortable). But he was still pretty high even when I went into labor b/c he was face up. He didn't fully engage until I was at a 9. The benefit was that I delivered him about 2.5 hours later and he looked so perfect, very round head and no newborn look, really. The nurses kept gushing over how amazing he looked for a vaginal delivery.

My son (pregnancy #3) was LOW for the last two months. He came on his due date.
