    I don't remember with my second child but with my first, the stomach literally dropped. I was physically carrying much lower than before. Hope this helps.

    When you go for your weekly doctor visits, they will measure your stomach--if you have not dropped than your stomach should measure 39 or 40 inches. If when they measure and your stomach measures 30 to around 35 than you know that you have dropped.
    You can also ask your doctor what your measurements were last week and the week before. You can also ask the doctor if he/she thinks that you have dropped. They will know because they should be able to feel the babies head when he/she does your internal exam.
