Hi, just kinda curious about the 'lightning' effect, when the baby engages in pelvis or drops.
What does this feel like and how do you know? I have heard that you have more pressure on your bladder but I have always needed to pee alot during this pregnancy.
People have told me that the baby has definitely dropped but I can't tell....and I ask DP and he just shrugs and says he's not sure (not that he would take that much notice anyway!)
Someone told me that you can use the finger? effect to tell if the baby has dropped? Apparently you can use your fore and middle finger from your breastbone down ? Sorry if that doesn't make sense - I didn't really understand how it worked...
So, my last mid wife appointment is next week but I'd just like your opinions now because I'm getting the feeling that this baby is going to come early....don't ask....it's just a feeling...(and also the midwife said last time that our baby is measuring a week ahead then what my dates are saying)
I am in my 37th week at the moment. She hasn't slowed her activity down though and I have read from other threads that there is supposed to be a 'calm before the storm' so to speak.
I'm feeling quite sick lately in the tummy and getting a lot of pain in my lower back and pelvis..
What has been your experience ??
