I'm 37 weeks and two days and i'm still waiting for my baby to drop.
I have been feeling alot of pressure recently when i get up from sitting or laying down down in my pelvic area does that mean i'm close to dropping??? And if so how close would ya'll say couple days? another week or so?? Lol sorrry i'm just so ready to pop this babygirl out!!!

I have stretch marks on my bottom, and i had some early on on my chest but they are barely noticable now...the ones on my bottom are a different story tho lol. None so far on my belly and im happy for that! I'm going to keep putting on belly cream to try and make sure i dn't get any in my last weeks to being prego! But ya about the dropping i feel alot of pressure down there but still no dropping of the belly :/...

when i was 36 weeks i felt pressure when i sat down to pee and when i sat down sometimes when i stood up from sitting down and every week the doc would say she is lower i just wasn't dialating also when i was about 37 1/2 thats when i started getting stretch marks i didn't have any before that, so maybe you are dropping it's just not dramatic like some people, if you dont have any stretch marks yet and you start to get some than in my opinion from personal experience you are dropping. hope this helped good luck!

Some women don't drop, with my son I dropped at about 35-36wks but he was so long that he was still up in my rib cage. I would just start walking a lot and doing squats those should help you loosen up and maybe dilate a little. Unfortunately little ones come when they want to, not when we want them to. Good luck! And hopefully you'll go into labor soon!
