my mom has had 3 kids and today when i saw her she was feeling on my belly and she told me that little Corey has already dropped what it felt like to her. she said if you have had a child you can tell when the baby had dropped. this is my first child and i cant tell if he has or not...
well i was wondering how soon can the baby drop into position?

Relax... Thru different stages of pregnancy, the baby will rise and drop all on their own... It doesnt necesarily mean that you are about to pop in the next few days. For example, baby dropped when I was about 22 weeks, and now she has risen up again... Sometimes its also just a build-up of gas in the stomach that, when released of course, makes it look like baby dropped. when in fact baby was already down... If it starts to worry you, ask your OB/midwife... Thats where I got my info from... :)
