Nous ne nous sommes pas couchés hier soir

I’m having real difficulty pronouncing this sentence  and I’m wondering whether in conversation the « ne » is dropped to ease pronunciation.

This question relates to:
French lesson "Using 'ne ... pas' with reflexive verbs in compound tenses (negation)"

Hi Karl,

Yes, you can drop the ‘ne’ in conversation and you will rarely hear it pronounced in every day informal speech in France.
