Baby dropping poll for FTM's

Postby Wishingandwaitingnomore! » Sat Aug 29, 2009 8:07 pm

After doing a lot of research online, I've found that for FTM's after your baby "drops" labor can be 2-4 weeks away. What is your experience?

TIA!

You don't have an option for "never" dropped! I was overdue and baby never dropped. I never went into labor either. :(

I thought my baby had dropped based on my pictures, but the day I gave birth (water broke) when I was checked at the hospital he was still at -4 station! He worked down on his own with the contractions during labor.

My belly dropped a little bit about 2 weeks before labor, but the baby didn't drop or engage until I was, oh, 30 hours into my labor or so.

my son dropped and I was dilated to 2 or 3 cm at my last doc appt. The night of that appt ( I was 38 wks) my water broke and my son came shortly thereafter. He is my 1st and it was all very quick and easy for me. So he dropped and less than a week later about a couple days actually ( cuz I think he dropped a few days before my last doc appt) and boom baby was here.
