My bump finally dropped yesterday. Just wondering how long it took from your bump dropping to baby being born? I'm due on Friday so hoping its soon!

Irrelevant answer from me as over 3 pregnancies the longest between bump dropping and the baby being born was um.. 90 minutes.

Mine only dropped in the final week.

Mine dropped and was engaged at about 36 weeks but I was induced and delivered 15 overdue ( needless to say I thought if go into labour soon after she'd dropped and was mighty fed up by then) so hope it's quick for you!

Ds1 have no idea since he was a premmie... Ds2 was very low and engaged for at least 4 weeks before I was induced... I have heard that subsequent babies tend to engage earlier than your first.

DC1 fully engaged at 32 weeks, born at 40 weeks. DC2 didn't fully engage until labour, although bump seemed to drop around 36 weeks.

With my first it was about 3 weeks. Second was twins and as I was massive they were prem I don't know. With dc4 the evening before she was born grin
