Anyone dropped yet? If so, when are you due?

Hi mamas,
I'm pretty sure baby has dropped over the past 3 days. My belly is way, way lower (sitting on my thighs now) and I've been having to get up about 4 times a night instead of one. I don't have a lot of pressure yet but have a really low-lying placenta so I wonder if that is why.

Seems early for this with a 3rd baby (I'm about 34.5 weeks). I never dropped until labor with my other babies so I'm not sure what to think. I've been getting a ton of BHs too. Regularly every 2-7 minutes from about 7pm until I go to sleep. That didn't start with YDD until 38 weeks.

I'm starting to get into that crazy "am I going to deliver soon" phase. ODD was induced at 40w 2 days and YDD came on her own at 40 w 2 days.

Thanks!

I dropped and I am almost 35 weeks. Lots of pressure and pain and I have to wear my maternity belt ALL the time or I can hardly walk. This is earlier than my other two and my last baby came at 39 weeks.

A little, and so did OB, but who knows. He's a ginormous kid anyway, so it's a little hard to really tell. LOL!

But yeah, I thought that too....kind of early for a third baby, but there are no hard fast rules in labor either, so I'm going with it.

My MIL said it looks like I have dropped, but other than not having constant heartburn anymore, I don't see it. I'm 36w2d.

I can never tell when I've "dropped" because I carry so low, my belly constantly rests on my thighs at this point. I don't have pain on my pubic bone yet, though, so maybe that means "no"?

i'm so short-torsoed that it's really hard to tell, lol. i'm 36w, and have been waking up more frequently to pee for the past few weeks (2-3 times a night). my MW said the baby is right down where he/she needs to be, and the kicks are certainly lower on my stomach than they used to be. so - maybe? lol.

No, boo!
This baby is still happily floating around in there..

but he was breech and just got flipped (by OB) last week. So maybe he is just getting comfy. i don't remember my others dropping so I'm not too concerned

Yeah I dropped about 2.5 weeks ago.....I pee about every 20 minutes now all day/night long and I hurt so much more down there....

But I'm expecting to go early too
