    I have too much time on my hands and this is my new obsession:Baby dropping/engaging/lightening or whatever you want to call it.

    I'm 35 weeks and my doctor hasn't said anything about baby dropping, but he doesn't volunteer alot of information and I didn't ask him. He DID however say he could feel his head from the inside...could that mean he's dropped?

    I don't think my belly looks any lower, but will get a bump pic tomorrow to check.

    I have the feeling that he's always been pretty low, because I haven't really had many rib kicks and the only times I've had trouble breathing was while laying down. I also know he's been head down for a while (maybe 29 weeks). My belly button has NOT completely popped (if that matters) and I do have to pee a lot especially while walking. I feell like I'm waddling a little now, but usually because I have to pee, not because my pelvis hurts. My mom says I'll know when I feel alot of pelvic pressure, but I don't feel much pelvic pressure at all (except maybe during a BH or when I have to pee badly)

    What do you ladies think? Could he have dropped without it being really obvious or do I still have that to look forward to/dread?

    When I was pregnant with my son, people told me that I didnt look like I had 'dropped' to the day before he was born. I never experienced the pressure in pelvis that had been described to me either but he had been head down on my bladder from really early on so perhaps I was used to the feeling. Basically, I am quite short and I dont think I had any room for him to 'drop' anyway, I only have limited room between pelvis & ribs lol.

    Caz-x I too have felt the bladder pressure and I'm pretty short too (5"4). Maybe he was always low?

    My tummy looked like this a week ago and has now got even worse... :cry:

    And I've been oiling and creaming twice a day...sob sob

    wow you look absolutely fantastic and I feel slightly more like a bloated whale LOL

    it does look like it's dropped a bit, is it supposed to drop a lot? I was explaining it to my husband and he looked at me like I was going to look like a freak (I'm sure I'm exaggerating but that's how it felt) - so I'm a tad concerned
