I just got back from the Dr. and have great news!! The baby dropped! I thought he had, but no one else thought that I looked like he had....soooo I just let it go. The first thing the Dr. said when I walked in though was that he looked lower. He checked him and said sure enough he was lower! I'm due June 6, but the Dr. says he doesn't think I'll make it to June! THat soooo makes my day! Hope the doc is right....I might have to hold him to it!!

Congrats! That is exciting! So, I've asked this on another thread and didn't get a reply...what exactly do they consider "dropped" to mean? My baby is head down, but does that mean he's dropped? Do they have to have entered the birth ca___l to be considered to have dropped?

When the baby drops, his or her head engages in the pelvis. They just move down a little in preperation for birth. Being head down doesn't neccissarily mean that the baby has dropped. I know our little guy has been head down since at least 30 weeks, but he didn't drop until recently! They say that when the baby drops that labor isn't too far off, but it varies with every baby. I'm going to a__sume that this means our baby is coming pretty soon though...hehe
