  • How can you tell that the baby has dropped? I never experienced this with my son, as far as I know. He was so early, I didn't really know what was going on and I never had hip pain with him. But for the last couple days I have been feeling more pressure on my lower belly, closer to my pelvis, and nothing I do can get rid of my hip pain. I'll be at 37 weeks tomorrow, so that's technically full term right? I have a dr. appt. tomorrow, so I know he'll tell me if she had dropped, but I'm curious to know now and don't want to wait until 4pm tomorrow.

  • My baby is extremely low, so I can't imagine he will be dropping at all. I feel pain in my pelvis and hips. It feels like you have a bowling ball between your legs. I am already waddling a little bit. I've also felt pressure right on my cervix, but that was when I was actually starting to dilate. Let us know what the doc says!

  • I can tell b/c now I can breathe but I cant walk! LOL sounds like he did drop, the bowling ball between legs is a good description. Jill
