bump dropped at 31 weeks with DC3

Up until yesterday DC3 seemed to be enjoying trying to climb into my ribcage. It seems to have suddenly dropped down so I can now breathe comfortably but if I stand or walk for more than 5 minutes it feels like it's really deep in my pelvis and I constantly need to pee.

With the first 2 this didn't happen until much later, if I remember rightly it was only a week or so before labour.

Is this normal or something to worry about?

Sounds normal to me. My bump had dropped by 30 weeks with DC 2 and by my 31 week MW appointment she had started to engage

PS should also say that she didn't come out until 40 + 3 so it isn't necessarily a sign that your baby will be early. She was fully (0/5) engaged by 38 weeks.
