I am 38 weeks pregnant and still my baby is not dropped or engaged.My bp is 120/94. When will my baby drop if not then doctor suggested for c-section.M worried... what to do?

Same is the case with me. M also 38 weeks pregnant but baby has still not dropped. Please
Suggest me also what can be done

Hi mommy
This should happen naturally by this time. If not ur doctor will plan for a c section. Follow ur doctor's advise

Please don't worry dear. It is a natural process and cannot be predicted. Also trust your doctor to do what is best for you and the baby

Sometimes during labour,baby drops,so it's unpredictable. See,wait until 40 weeks for labour to start itself,if nothing happens,then go for c-sec.

Hey wait for sometime ...all the best . TC

Thnk you mummies. Fingers crossed

Hi Disha, did u c ur doctor. What is she suggesting now? What's ur due date? Mine is 30th April. M having pain in my vagina since yesterday. Is this da symptom that baby is dropping?
