I am 32-weeks-pregnant and was told my baby is low: Has this happened to anyone else?

Ok mommy’s, I had my 32 week appointment today and he has been measuring big. But she checked me because I have been having bad cramps and a lot of pain when I walk. He is super low she said. This is also my second baby. Has anyone experienced this? And was your baby born early and healthy

My daughter was super low my whole pregnancy. Like they had to tip my upside down to measure her head. I was induced at 38 weeks and she was born perfectly healthy.

I don’t remember the week but my daughter dropped, breech long before she was born. She flipped herself. It was painful to walk & worse when she flipped. I’m sorry it’s happening to you. I hope he dropped head down for you.

Oh yes this was exactly what I experienced with my 2nd pregnancy as well. That pressure is no joke! Just get lots of bed rest and take it easy and the contractions will ease up until baby’s ready :black_heart:

I carried both of my boys low, and all my girls high. All 5 were born between 36 & 38 weeks, but I’m not a 40 week gal, I’m a 9 month gal.

Yes ma’am! Your baby will be fine! Try to stay off your feet!

My second was way lower then my first.

I did with my second pregnancy. My son was very low. And I’m a hairdresser so I was on my feet a lot. And also had a 1 year old. I didn’t really think much of it (or maybe didn’t have time to think, lol) and just dealt with the discomfort. Then my abdominal muscles separated, the most painful thing I ever went through. I rather go through child labor, lol. My OB told me it’s extremely common in 2nd pregnancies and suggested I get a belly band and it took off the pressure instantly. I was 3 days late and he was born happy and healthy. Maybe try a belly band?

My guy was low the whole time but came at 38 weeks healthy as can be

I was carrying my baby in pregnancy #2 super low at the end cause he dropped down. I delivered at 36 weeks. Pregnancy #4 is a low lying placenta (1cm from cervix) and the placenta is directly under the baby so baby is traverse (side ways) cause it can’t put its head down cause the placenta takes up all the space there. And because the placenta is so low, the baby is stuck really low too and it feels like it’s literally in my birthing canal lol. Very uncomfortable and making my hips separate early and painful. Low lying babies are a rough go. Good luck mama

I had my baby at 36 weeks

This happened with my first pregnancy with my son! He was born healthy, but was a month overdue! He was also measuring big and by the ultrasounds they said he was going to be around 10 pounds at delivery! However, their measurements were completely wrong because when he was born he was only 6 pounds 12 ounces and 19.5 inches long even with being a month overdue! I wouldn’t worry too much it was hard to walk around with my son also and he was extremely low as well and he was a happy very health baby when he was born! :grin:

I’m 33 weeks and last week at my appt Dr said my baby girl dropped already. Dr told me it’s just a matter of time when she wants to make her debut. I’m having alot of pelvic pain and back pain. Also Dr said it is normal since it’s my second pregnancy.

I was told baby was low from 32 weeks on. Doctor said she’s be surprised if I made it to 37 weeks.

He was low like that for so long. Anyways I delivered on his due date as healthy as can be. He also had two inches of cone head from being so low for so long.

Yep I dropped about 32 weeks with all mine but didn’t have my first till 40 weeks, second at 39 weeks and third 37 weeks… on my forth pregnancy and have dropped at 29 weeks! :smiley:

My son was low from 32 weeks till I hit 36 went I to full labor in and out for a week till I was 37 weeks. And they finally delivered bc I was tech. Full term even though he’s still considered a premier.

All 4 mine been really low boy that back pain lol

With my last baby, she was my third, I was told they would be surprised if she didn’t come early because she was head down and low. She was born a week late, after having to be induced.
