    I think it means that the baby is moving down and is getting ready to make an appearance. You might feel it moving less aswell now! I'm not sure but think thats what it means.

    dropped usually means baby is head down in pelvis getting ready to deliver. it sort of looks like your bump is migrating southward!!
    in my experience people start saying that around your due date to make you feel better!!!
    you'll know when the baby is really dropping cos u will not be able to pass a loo without squeezing out 2 drops and on your 2nd and subsequent pregnancies you might not even make the loo!!!
    sorry to sound so cynical but 2nd baby due tomorrow and getting really fed up now!
