What does it feel like when baby drops?
Been wondering this too.
Is the movement way down low when baby has dropped?
I don't think so, I always have movement way down low.
I'm just wondering because hip pain and pressure is really intense today!
All I can say is this past week I have been getting sharp pains in/on my cervix with alot of pressure
I have also noticed his kicks are no longer in my ribs but more around bellybutton level
When baby's head turns down(from what I've read) you start to feel those sharp pains on your cervix. but it doesn't mean the baby has dropped.
I don't know! I can't figure it out, pregnancy is confusing.
i think i dropped today. Bump much lower and quite alot of pressure down there, well heavier is prob a better word. Also feel like i can breath again, like my ribs are a bit less squashed. Would love to know if it sounds like i've dropped.
When you walk, it feels like babys head is between your knees!
Seriously though, you'll probably feel lots more pressure down there and walking will be pretty uncomfortable (yes, it gets worse!). You may feel you are able to breathe more easily as there will more room for your lungs to expand now that baby won't be taking up so much room.
here is a pic of my bump at 25 weeks and here is todays 31 week bump shot
Well for me it felt like lots of sharp pains in/on my cervix the week it happened....with alot of pressure down there... i had a massive reliefe feeling and could finially breath allot better.... and since i felt it happen not once have i had Hart burn ...
Then MW told me that following friday i was very low and 2/5 engaged.... and then yesterday i went for a brisk walk and i swear it went fully engaged cuz the painfull feeling was emence..( i just rang MW to see if this could have been why and she agreed) massive pressure i can now actuallly feel babies head right there between my pelvise ( like a football between my legs) and last night i had to sleep with a cushion between my knees cuz it hurt to close them lol
My bump also looks so low and belly button is now pointing down...
Just wondering when this usually happens?
I think there is more space between my bump n boobs now- not major but there is a difference to me and I am feeling him bum or whatever it was before more near belly button than ribs so hoping it means he has engaged along with walk like a penguin lol
I felt like my LO would fall out of my arse if I opened my legs wide enough when she dropped.
I went to see midwife yesterday as pressure down below. My privates are actually balloning. Baby engaged- No Chance
He is floating free still but head down ( has been since 26 wk scan) I was gutted as was hoping he would be here soon. Midwife did say after first baby babies can engage in last two hours of pregnancy, the more pregnancies you have the less chance of engaging until last minute. Ligaments are looser so not as much support. In my case its a the Fibroid causing pressure(blasted thing)
I've been wondering this too, haven't noticed a massive difference in bump position or relief for my lungs but today for the first time I've been getting weird poking sensations on what I think must be my cervix. I'm sure it's just pressure but it feels like little fingers are being used to try and poke their way out of there! In my more insane moments I keep picturing a little fist popping out...
I deffinitely think your baby has dropped , around 34 weeks is when I started feeling intense pressure and pain right as you describe in my hips down to my pelvic like baby is stretching my ligaments as FAR as they can go.
In my opinion if its baby thats dropped the pressure wont get any better, well at least mine deffinitely hasnt I cant even cross my legs anymore, and my feet have started to swell...
Nessa, I think Brady is dropping too. i have had lots of pain in my pelvis and it hurts to cross my legs now too. i totally get the football between the legs feeling, but I dont think he is as low as he is going to get. But all the same,lower than he was say even a week ago.
I felt pressure on my cervix and pelvis, my bump looked lower and I have had no more heartburn.
Some women also say they can breathe easier, I have never felt breathless so I didn't notice this change...
Well, it's like she backed up and flipped over again because she's once again in a different position. She just can't decide
Watch brady come before emma
