For those about to pop... We Salute You! (ok couldn't help that one!) For others who may have "dropped" or have the baby's head engaged already, if you are curious also about what that means if you are a first-time mom versus a multipara, here's a neat iVillage article on that. I found it helpful, though a little unnerving, because contrary to what you'd expect, apparently it's the 1st time moms who typically "drop" sooner, and go around with the baby's head engaged, longer before the onset of labor.
In subsequent pregnancies, apparently (and this seems counterintuitive, doesn't it?) the "drop" doesn't USUALLY happen til much closer to onset of labor.
Since I am "dropped" and this is #3, not sure whether I am more excited, or more uneasy. But it's a neat article anyway!
