Lightening or “Dropping”

Pregnancy Resources

Lightening is a change in the baby’s position. During lightening, your abdomen begins to appear lower and you may experience more pelvic pressure and frequent urination. You may also notice relief in symptoms like heartburn, shortness of breath, or rib discomfort. This means your baby’s head has moved downward into the pelvis in preparation for delivery.
