How do the MWs know when baby is engaged?


Seen a few people say that their LOs are engaged....so basically I just wondered how your MW knows? Just from a feel of bump??

Thanks!! Got an appointment on Friday so I'll be prepared for this happening (and make sure I don't need a wee - can imagine that isn't comfortable!)

My mw is great and she explained to me yesterday that if she can feel babies head and move it freely then it's not engaged.For a first pregnancy thay don't expect it to be until about 36wks !!!!
