Re: What does it feel like when your baby "drops"?

It feels like you can breathe again. And like you have a bowling ball sitting on your bladder.

OMG you can breathe? If it weren't for the whole bowling fall out of cooter thing... I'd be wishing for him to drop already I hate not being able to breathe normally after I carry a small load of laundry up from the basement...

LOL. It totally feels like that! It reminds me of those party games where you have to walk with a balloon between your knees, except you've got a bowling ball in your groin instead.

Re: What does it feel like when your baby "drops"?

With ds, I didn't notice any change when he dropped. A couple of days later, I did have an increased urgency when I had to pee so I suppose that was from his head pressing on my bladder. Actually, after he dropped, I felt movement higher in my belly than ever before (I carried him extremely low the entire preg). I guess he was kicking higher to dive down as low in my pelvis as possible?? If the dr had not told me that he dropped, I honestly wouldn't have known. Maybe partly because he was so low the entire time (even 2 weeks before birth and before his head was fully engaged, he was at 0 station). I guess I was used to the bowling ball between my legs.

Re: What does it feel like when your baby "drops"?

Amelia was up and down also. One night it felt like she was going to come right out and when I would walk, it would feel like a arm or leg was sticking out down there but then a few days later, I wouldnt feel anything. She never officially dropped. I dont think Bella did either.

I felt lots of pressure in my bum and had lots of shooting pains in my "cooter" (Baby pressing on pelvic nerves)

I was up peeing every 30 mins instead of every 2 hours.....

That is EXACTLY it! BTW, I think I pee'd just a little, I laughed so hard My dd dropped early, about a month before she arrived. I woke up one morning, put my hand on my belly and freaked out 'cause she wasn't there! She had been up under my ribs but overnight she had shifted so low I felt like she was going to pop out a hand and wave hello....At first I thought it was great because I could finally breathe but then I got out of bed. Oooochie! I felt she was lodged down in my vajayjay - I swear I was bow-legged after that. I was afraid to cross my legs 'cause it felt like I was squishing her head

Re: What does it feel like when your baby "drops"?

yeah, it's definately not comfortable. I never experienced it with my first child because she was delivered by csection at 37 weeks. However, with this little boy that's STILL in me now, he dropped around 37 weeks, and I thought I was fixin to have the baby, just because I never felt this way before. You'll probably feel a lot of pressure "down there". I know for me, for the first day or two, I felt like I had to poop everytime I stood up or walked because of all the pressure!

I dunno..you'll definately know though!! No doubt!

Oh yeah! And your belly now sits in your lap when you're sitting up straight!
