Early Dropping

JuneBride - March 6

Starting to freak out - I dropped over the weekend and I just started my 31st week. Everywhere I read it says that labor starts 2-4 weeks after you drop! Has anyone dropped early but didn't have the baby within the 2-4 week time frame? My dr appt is Thursday but I need reassurance today :-). Thanks in advance!

you may not have dropped. the baby is getting bigger, which might cause it to start riding lower in your pelvic girdle. I'm prenant with my 2nd and could have SWORN i dropped a couple weeks ago. doc said, "nope.....not yet". even if you have dropped.....it's not a sign of inpending early labor. my first never dropped, because there was no room for him to drop. I carried him as low as he could possibly get the entire pregnancy and still went 2 weeks over.

Hello, I am 33 weeks and doctor informed me about 29 30 weeks that my baby was really low. he said that everything was ok except that i will prolly have some pain until she is born from her pushing down. He said the best way to try to relieve the pain was to lay down and prop legs up for a while. I have also lost my mucous plug. that was bout 2 weeks ago. Cervix is soft and so far everything seems to be ok. My next appointment is the 10, friday. If you are really worried though, you can always call your doctor and talk with them. See what they say. Best of luck to you!!!!:):):)

Thanks for your responses - I am probably just carrying extremely low but I am going to check with the dr on Thursday. Thank goodness I have this site or I would drive myself crazy with worry! Thanks again!

Junebride, it is normal for you to worry in pregnancy hun. Trust me, i have done my share of worrying and I know i will probably do more worrying until I have her lol. It is only normal. Good luck and let us know what the doctor says ok? :):):)
