Remind me...

Its been a while since my last pregnancy and I dont remember how it feels when the baby drops. I dont know if my belly really looks any lower physically as I am very long torsod but inside I feel so much more pressure in my hips and am having a really hard time closing my legs to any degree. I have nearly 7 weeks left and cant imagine this getting worse still. She has been head down now for five weeks and I know that hasnt changed.

Can anyone describe what it feel like? Does this sound like that?

Re: Remind me...

I'm not an expert, I don't really remember DS1 dropping. But I am pretty sure this one has. I carry REALLY high, like right under my boobs. Then one day, I noticed he was a few inches below also I don't have the cute belly button in the middle thing, it's kinda on the bottom, and it moved up one day.

Plus I sit like a man TMI especially when I potty, I have to take my pants totally off to get the right angle

This! I have a very short torso so I do the same thing. I can't empty my bladder unless I do

Re: Remind me...

I never remember it happening with my first and then my ob said with subsequent pg's you usually don't drop until right before labor?

All I remember is that last day or so feeling like baby (#3) had so much pressure on my bladder than ever before, like you'd feel a kick down there!

I carry super high too so maybe that's a factor...

I carry my babies low and when they drop I remember telling a friend that when I sat down it felt like his head was going to hit the chair, lol.
