If you mean dropped, it's different for every one. My son dropped at 34 weeks and he was born at 36 weeks. BUT, that being said depending on if this is your first baby or not they may not stay that way. The baby can be dropped for weeks before he/she makes an appearance.

My oldest never became engaged. I went over 42 weeks with him.
My second was engaged at 17 weeks and I started preterm labor. It was a fight to get to 36 weeks, with regular meds and LOTS of hospitalizations.
My third was engaged at 34 weeks, and I was in labor at 36. It got stopped several times and she was born at 37 weeks.

if its your first they say anywhere up to four weeks but if its your second or more then anytime soon! i never dropped with my eldest little girl and my waters broke and they had to induce me! with my twins they dropped the day they were born!

My first dropped at 28weeks and i went in labor at 33weeks...it was stopped for 4 days and then at 39weeks i was induced. My second dropped at 32 weeks and i was induced at 39weeks. i also had 2 membrane sweeps with each pregnancy and i was still induced. Every woman's body is different but a good way to help is to get lots of walking in and sit on an exercise ball and rock side to side. This helps place pressure on your cervix to promote labor...only due this if you are further then 36 weeks though!!
