Still haven't dropped...

Does this mean I'm going to be late? This is my first baby and most of what I read said that first timers usually drop 2-4 weeks before. I'm at 38 1/2 weeks. Anyone here not dropped until labor?

Re: Still haven't dropped...

Mine didn't drop until I hit 10 cm dilated. All 5 of my vaginal deliveries were that way. The first 2 times the doctors kept saying if I got to 10cm and the baby still hadn't dropped I might need a c-section. When I hit 10 cm my baby dropped and shot directly into the birth canal. The doctors were amazed. Sometimes you just don't drop before labor.

None of my 4 ever dropped. I guess the first 2 must have at some point during labor, and the last 2 born c/sec never did for sure.

I didn't drop with all 3 of my kids until in labor. My kids were born at 40w1d, 34w1d, and 33w3d.

So you guys were still carrying really high before you went into labor? I just hope he does drop at some point.
