So we went to the mall yesterday and as I was wobbling out something weird happened in my stomach and it pretty much felt like baby was going to fall out or something. Then I couldn't walk and had very strong contractions for about an hour and then they stopped -- however my stomach is WAY WAY lower now -- just as big, but there is definitely A LOT more space between the top of my fundus and the round part of my belly is REALLY low now, so low that I can't cross my legs at all and I can't sit with my legs close together or anything.
I can barely handle sitting up, it's like I feel like I have to lay back in everything because I can't sit straight or baby goes nuts and pushes and pulls or whatever.
It really feels like baby has dropped - or maybe gotten into some other position. How early in pregnancy can the baby drop? My other two dropped well after 34 weeks, so not this early.
I also decided to re-measure my fundal height and it's coming up at 35.5 weeks now and that is if I measure myself as tightly and as far down as possible lol and I even layed down flat on the floor so that my tummy would be as FLAT as humanly possible. I have a midwife appointment on the 2nd, going in for an ultrasound hopefully before I get in to see the midwife and I have to go in for bloodwork again this week (double checking antibodies). I know the baby is fine cause movement is still insane and all over the place so I am not really worried about baby while it's in there, just starting to get concerned about going into labor early or something - I know they say baby doesn't drop till about 4 weeks before labor and in subsequent pregnancies they say baby engages basically just before labor -- but I also know everyone is different so I'd like to see if anyone else has ever dropped this early and been fine.
Think I should call the midwife before my appointment? I don't know, I am not having any weird symptoms, just lots of pressure and pelvic pain but not bloody show or extra water or anything that would indicate labor to me.
