I was having pre-term labor for several weeks and had gone to labor and delivery several times because of it.

I was about 33-34 weeks when my baby turned and dropped. Around 35-36 weeks he was really low and then at 37 weeks 2 days I went into labor and had my son.

My doctor wasn't too worried about how low my baby was since I had GD and he was bigger than normal, but was going to induce me at 38 weeks if I didn't have him sooner.
