Anyone experiencing the drop?

I know as of yesterday I feel baby a good bit lower than before (when she is already hanging out low anyway). How many of us already have a dropping baby? I know I'm only 33 weeks but I believe this is around the time my other kids started to situate themselves progressively lower and lower. I expect that nasty back pain soon. Her head is making it a mite uncomfortable to sit because I feel it in my pelvis--yuck!

Yeah I have a low baby too and it can be awful. Sometimes after going to the bathroom I get this really yucky sensation in my pelvis region from the baby's head. Oh well we are at the end..... just gotta hang in there

Boo!! Are you having nasty heartburn? I know I am but I think it's from feet attacking my stomach space.

I was wondering if she had dropped, but I am still getting heartburn issues more often than I would expect with the drop. At the same time, I'm expecting her to be kind of tall, so who knows. I've heard my doc say that she is posterior....I think that means that she is facing forward. I've been having some awful back pain and I can feel her either elbowing or headbutting my hips a lot. Like right this second.

Hmmm I wonder what that does mean for heartburn if they are forward facing. I had terrible heartburn with DS1 and he was forward facing. I hadn't thought about that possibility. :-/ Geez I hope my LO isn't forward facing. That was a nasty delivery.

I feel her roll back and forth and it could have just been that when I had my ultrasound two weeks ago that she was facing forward. I've read that you can tell if their back is facing forward because you feel the hard back and spine while or they are forward, it's more soft. I'm falling into the latter if I am not having BH. I just know she isn't breech, but who knows what direction she's facing. I had major heartburn with DS in my last month, but he was big And I think he faced the back. I just know that I'm having way more back pains this time around.

I don't think this baby can get any lower!! I swear his hand is above his head and constantly tickling my cervix! HA!! But really, I feel full and pregnant and big enough but I don't have that up in the lungs feeling that I've had with others. So I'm not sure if I'm going to be seeing much difference in drop or not. As long as he stays head down, I'm ok with that!
