Belly pic/drop??

So finally getting a new belly pic on here Smile

Also, when I woke up today it really looked like she had dropped some since the pic from 2 days ago. I am going to post both on here. I wanted to get your opinion ladies...

Thanks!

Here is the pic from 2 days ago...

7/8

And here is the one from this morning...

7/10

I see a definite difference...So does that mean she is going to come soon?? Her due date is about 25 days away...
Thanks again!

I personally don't think dropping is a sign of labor, I didn't drop with either of my other two until i was in full-blown labor...
that being said, i can't see the other pic. Sad

I can't see much of a difference. Wink
I dropped about 4 weeks before my daughter was born...it really doesn't mean a whole lot I don't think. Daphne was at a 0 station for a long, long time...my doctor could feel her head easily at every exam and I was 3cm and 100% effaced at my 36 week appointment. She wasn't born for 2.5 more weeks!

Dropping *i think* is more a sign of your body getting ready and baby getting engaged. It could be soon, but it could be weeks. lol.
Baby started to drop for me in mid June, so at 34ish weeks. Theres no other sign of anything happening yet. lol.... I think you still have time Wink

I was told with your first baby you can drop weeks before labor, which was true with my first. With your 2nd+ I guess you don't usually drop until labor.

Thanks for the advice ladies! I had a feeling it didnt mean too much in the way of labor coming soon...she needs to fatten up a bit anyway Smile Bake away!!

Hope you are all feeling well!

Cute belly pics! Smile
Dropping doesn't mean much, but I think I can see a difference in the photos. Probably just a good sign that your body is doing what it needs to in order to gear up for baby.

I see a little difference... and I agree Dropping don't really mean anything will happen soon. Dr. Told me baby has dropped and been in position since 33 weeks... No effacement and No dilation @ my 36wks appt.

Cute picture though
