question about droppin (i got a ? too!)
shanastash posted:
can the baby drop and then creep back up and then drop again?

my woo hoo hurts all the time now and occasionally i have this very heavy feeling and my tummy is alot lower when i have it but then when i rest, the pain kinda goes away and my tummy goes back to "high".

the "pain" feels as if i have a softball in between my vagina and i just "carry" it along but eventually it kinda goes away...weird right? hehe, i don't know.

That's probably just her changing position. I could be wrong, but I don't think the baby's head can become unengaged once it is engaged.

I think it is just the weight of the baby on all of your internal organs. Lots of pounds pressing down. My son was 9.4 so I had that feeling for weeks. Honestly, I never even noticed if or when he dropped since he was a big baby to begin with.

I remember that with DS. Once he dropped (around 36 weeks) I remember saying I felt like I was walking with a bowling ball between my legs. I don't remember him coming back up though. I think once their head is in the right position they stay. She could be stretching maybe...
