    Sorry to be annoying cos I know there was a post about this this morning which explained babys engaging from 1/5 to 5/5...I was going to have another look after my MW appointment but can't for the life of me find the post now!

    Last week baby was 3/5....and today a different MW said it was at the brim. Is this the same thing or has baby moved up/down?

    Thanks!

    Did she say whether LO was 3/5 engaged or 3/5 palpable? If engaged then it means it more engaged than not, if palpable it means that she can still feel 3/5 of head (and so you're 2/5 engaged)...if that makes sense!!!

    Oh shit!

    She said "its at the brim so nearly there" which made me think it was still 3/5.

    Last week he didn't actually say whether it was 3/5 engaged or palpable. He just wrote 3/5 in my notes!

    Thanks for the link to the thread :) off there now for a nosy xx
