    Default Pretty normal to 'drop' at 32 weeks?

    Hello, DH and I dtd last night and afterwards I had some pretty full on cervical pains (sharp, not crampy). They've continued today, but milder, and I've also needed to pee a lot more frequently since then. It feels really hard really low down when I feel with my hands, as if her head is down very low. It just feels different, so I'm assuming she's 'dropped' or partly engaged? Is this all pretty normal for 32 weeks? Just after some reassurance. I don't want to go early!

    I was 34 weeks when dp and I DTD and I felt a sharp "pop" sensation, kind of like bubs punching my cervix. I went into premature labour the next morning.

    If in doubt, get checked.

    Sorry my story wasn't very promising

    I'm 32 weeks also and whenever we dtd I always get tightening like braxton hicks and the next day I seem to feel heavier and more swollen like bubbas head is pushing down. If in doubt though please get checked.

    Both my girls engaged around 32 weeks, both were born within 3 days of their due date. Fingers crossed it's the same with you.

    Ah so annoying, I rang just to check that middy thought it was normal and now she wants me to go to the gp and check I don't have a uti.
