Is 36 weeks to early for baby to been fully engaged?


Hello Ladies,

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.

Any of you ladies have any idea?

babies tend to engage and disengage all the time, some from 34 weeks on
