35 1/2 weeks pregnant, Can you tell if baby is going to come early?

My baby's head is very low now and my stomach has dropped already. He seems to been getting lower very fast. I have started having strange sensations just inside the virginal area. Can any of this mean that the birth is getting closer? This is my second pregnancy.

Answer: Hi, If your first baby was born close to term then this baby will too. IT is very common to have a lot more pressure and irregular contractions with subsequent pregnancies but it does not indicate that the baby will come early. Best wishes, Alex.
