About a week and a half ago, at 29 weeks, I started having a lot of lower abdominal pains that I did not previously have. I tried pelvic tilts, walked around, etc., nothing helped. It's not the groin pain I've been having, since I've had that for probably a month and am used to it. Doctor thought the baby might have dropped, wasn't worried since I wasn't bleeding or having contractions. I had a doctor's appt. the next day anyway, and he measured. My fundal height was down to 27, which confirmed baby is definitely dropping (I'd just had a growth U/S two weeks before which was normal, so we know the fundal height wasn't low due to IUGR.) I've also continued to have more abdominal/pubic bone area pain from the pressure. Isn't 29 weeks early for him to start dropping? I keep hearing that it's usually 4-6 weeks before, not 11! Is this an indication that he might come early? Anyone else walk around with baby dropped for 10-12 weeks?
