I am 32 almost 33 weeks and my son sits so low anyways so hard to tell..however, today i noticed my already long torso looking EXTREMELY long considering how low he is in my belly and how tall i am. He is definately dropping because I coughed today.....and well...pee'd on myself! haha. looks like everyone drops at different times...thing is, you never know when one is coming early or late.

There is no certain time I dropped about 30 weeks with my first and 32-33 weeks with this one. Good luck

Everyone is a little different but I would say closer to your due date. I dropped a couple of days to a week before I had my kids. You will know when it happens, if you don't notice yourself (I never did) someone else will notice for you. Good luck!

Good to know! I was induced early with my first - before the baby dropped, and now almost 33wks with my second and wasn't sure when to expect it to happen either =)

mine just dropped last monday. i was 36 weeks and 3 days. it was strange...when i sat up in the morning, she was sitting on my lap! lol...i think she may have just dropped halfway though because i was walking around walmart yesterday and started having pressure in my lower belly like she was dropping more. i thought she was gonna fall out! lol

but theres no certain time for it..everyone is different.

Congrats on the baby! Everyone is different. I'm almost 34 weeks right now but my belly dropped around 29 weeks. You'll definetly be able to tell. My little girl was up under my ribs for the longest time and it was very uncomfortable and painful but after she dropped I felt so much relief, but then you'll have other worries like having the urge to pee constantly and wondering if when you sneeze are you going to pee your pants as well. Just remember to assume that every urge to pee is real even if you just went and cross your legs when you sneeze. Trust me! lol

Yeah, I'm finishing up week 35 and going on week 36 and I have yet to drop. I'm probably guessing it will be around week 38.

Everyone is diferent but usually later in the preg. I don't remember dropping before 35 or 36 weeks on any of my previous preg. Hang in there- trust me, you'll know!! You won't be able to sneeze or laugh without feeling like you have to pee!!
