Is 36 weeks to early for baby to been fully engaged?
I had a doctor appt. Wednesday and he checked me for the first time (which I have to admit was a little uncomfy ) Well, he told me that I was dilated 0.5 cm and that my cervix was soft, but still high up and that he could definetly feel baby's head. Here in the US they don't use the terms they use in the UK, but I was just wondering if he said he could feel the baby's head if that meant the baby was fully engaged? I meant to ask him what exactly he meant by that, but he was in a hurry, he had to deliver a baby.
I went last monday and was told he is engaged i think i have been for a while it doesnt mean a whole lot time wise cause you can still be overdue even if your engaged haha ugh pregnancy and technically at 37 weeks your full term so baby could come anytime after that so i wouldnt say its to early
baby is engaged doesnt mean baby is ready to comeout...but its good sign that ur baby is engaged in 36 weeks...when favorable conditions come it il be easy for baby to come out...0.5 cm is not enough dilation...goodluckhope ur baby keep getting engaged at time of labor too...
