    Just wondering?

    Feels like baby is starting to engage to me, I'm 32 weeks. With Liam he was engaged from 33 weeks.

    Thanks :thumbup:

    mines 4/5ths engaged and this is my 3rd, ds2 didnt engage till labour really he was so high he wasnt putting pressure on my cervix to bring it low enough for the MW to give me a sweep, second babies do what they want lol its not a sign labour is iminent if baby is engaged and likewise doesnt mean labour wont happen in the next few hours either, but in your case id hope labour is a couple of weeks off yet

    Mine pops down low when I stand up, then goes up again when I sit/lie. Sometimes he is so low it feels like I'm walking around with a very large egg in my pants. But as yet he hasn't got stuck there.
