I'm 30 weeks with my first and am wondering if anyone has advice on how you can tell if your baby has 'dropped'? Isn't it too early for this to happen?
When I compare photos from yesterday to a couple of weeks ago I definitely think I look lower. I'm noticing movement a lot further down now, almost never up under my ribs like it used to be and the top of my tummy also feels softer and more squishy and not as hard if that makes sense! I also feel a lot more pressure and aches in my pelvic area and lower back, but was thinking this could also be attributed to ligaments stretching and moving etc?
My next ob appt is 05/03 so I'll obviously talk to him then but was wondering if anyone had any experiences to share of what it felt like when their bub dropped? And does it necessarily mean you will go into labour early if you drop early?
