    My little boy has been 4/5ths engaged for the past 4 weeks, I lost a lot of my plug yesterday and lots of pains so when I went to the midwife today was looking forward to good news ... but baby is no further engaged, I really thought he was on his way but doesn't look like it!! When I asked her if she thought I would go overdue she said more than likely :hissy:

    Aw hun :hugs:. Some babies dont even begin to engage untill actual labor has started! I wouldn't worry too much about it, it can happen anytime and baby will come when its ready x

    Aww hun. My daughter was 4/5ths engaged from 34wks. I went for my 38wk MW appt & was already in early labour contracting every 10mins & she had moved to 3/5ths... i had my little girl later that day!

    It doesnt mean you will go overdue. Keep boucing on your ball to encourage him to move down.
    Good luck.

    Thanks everyone :hugs:- midwife upset me a bit, I don't think they think about what they are saying sometimes before they say it. I am still loosing more of my plug so am looking on the bright side that things are moving along!! Off for a bounce on my birth ball now!!
