View Full Version : Baby Dropping??
Hey guys, im 37+ weeks pregnant with my 4th child and when i went to see the doctor he said that the bubs had dropped already and that he couldnt see me going any longer then another 2 weeks. Imagine my happiness as with my other 3 children i have always been induced at 35 and 36 weeks, and this pregnancy seems to b taking forever. I never had any of them drop before but it seems to me like he moves up and down , does this mean he hasnt actually dropped yet and is just playing with me haha ??? Any opinions would b greatly appreciated
My boy dropped around the same time38 weeks and doctors would say that I there's no chance I would pass 40 weeks (or so I believed they're saying :).
But I'm 5 days overdue now, Iíve been having lots of abdomen and back pains but no show so far. So maybe he dropped but not dropped enough haha.. I know that's when it becomes impatient when you know he dropped but he's not coming out !!!
oo i feel for u :(. is this ur first child??
Taylor & Lachlans Mummy
They told me the same thing with my first, she dropped at 36weeks & then went 1 week overdue. They told me Id be lucky to make it to 38weeks shows how much they know. Hope all goes well
Im hoping that for my sake that it will different because it is my 4th :) I can only hope. Does anyone have any comments about 2nd or other babies ??
I hate to be the bearer of bad news... but I gave birth to my third daughter 10 weeks ago and she had dropped at 33 weeks, but she kept bobbing up and down.
At the time, I was told by my Obstetrician that I wouldn't go past 35/36 weeks and was expecting another induction as had happened with my first two.
But this time around things were very different... she didnt' fully engage until 38 weeks and I delivered her (after being induced at 41.5 weeks).
So hang in there... your baby may just be like mine and not really sure where he/she wants to be at the moment.
Good luck with your pending birth. :o
My son dropped at about 38 weeks but I went 11 days past my due date.
The words you want to hear from your doctor is "the head is engaged". Then you know you're about to see some action. Unfortunately with consequencial pregnancies most babies' heads don't engage until labour starts.
All you can do is sit back and dream of your new little one until they are good and ready to come out (which hopefully is soon).
