    Hi ladies! well today i found out that baby had actually turned and is no longer breech but head down and 2/5 engaged!:happydance: so my question is do you think he will pop in and out of being engaged or do you think he is too far down now? does this mean labour could start soon? i have been induced twice before as i went overdue but remember only ever being 3/5 engaged at mw appointments! ?

    i think they can still pop in and out. But the more in they are the chance must be less. Mine isnt that engaged yet.

    does your midwife feel at each appt if baby is head down?that is when they can tell. They wont always tell you but will write it in notes

    My MW has been having a quick prod of my belly (lol) since 28 weeks - are you sure yours hasn't done that at all? Check your notes as it'll be written in there if she has palpated your tummy.
