It means the midwife can feel 3/5 of the baby's head outside your pelvis, so babies head is 2/5 engaged into your pelvis

I was 3/5 palpable at your stage, and now, he's fully engaged! It's somewhat uncomfortable but at least he's aware of his eviction route!

I can imagine! I can't wait for my next appointment though so see if baby's engaged! Although I'm sure excitement will soon turn to bricking it

i was 3/5ths palpable at my 36 week appointment, and at a check up at fetal well being 4 days ago she was 1/5th palpable ...

but she feels so much higher today, so i think shes came back up a bit gutted because i was hoping it was a bit of a sign she would come a little earlier
