Baby Dropping Early

in my 1st pregnancy the baby didn't drop until about 3 wks before birth, but this time it's already dropped and I'm only 22 weeks pregnant. has anyone experienced early dropping? can it mean extreme preterm birth? does anyone know anything about this. I haven't been able to find anything about this on the net anywhere. It all talks about this happening near birth like my 1st one. thanks.

mine dropped around 29wks and i'm 38wks now, so i don't necessarily think it's a sign of pre term labor.

It could just be the baby changing position. They are really little at that point and have lots of room to change positions.

I hoped it was just changing position, but the doctor felt and found that it has dropped and head is down in the pelvis. she just hasn't often seen it happen that early. anita, did you have to slow down much (other than because of the discomfort)? for safety?
