Just had my midwife appointment and she told me bubs head is 4/5 engaged. She didn't really seem concerned, but has anyone else ha this happen this early? When does it get so low that things start happening?

4/5 usually means she can feel most of babys head still his just a tiny bit engaged,if he is yr first its perfectly normal for him to start heading down around now xxxx

Yea she said she could feel his head but couldn't move it much so that meant he was just starting to drop down. Thanks, I thought it might be a tad early but hopefully this is all a good sign. X

Sounds like she meant he's 4/5 palpable, so actually only 1/5 engaged. In any case, it's normal and not anything to worry about. Apparently it's very common for first babies to start to engage early.

I was going to say this too. I think she must have meant palpable. x
