Does your bump change when baby engages?

    I had my 38 week appointment yest and got told she's not engaged yet, but she's head down (been head down since 28 weeks) But today i've had backache on and off which i've never had until today (not sure if this is anything to do with it) But i've just noticed my bump seems to have lowered, the top of my bump seems to have alot more space there, does this mean she's engaged?

    It sounds like that yes... bump definitely looks and feels significantly lower.

    my bump stayed the same in both my previous pregnancy and my sons didnt engage till labor
    so dont worry too much, sometimes they just dont go down there till labors started

    I was just looking at my bump pictures the other day (baby was born in December), and my bump definitley looks different from my 39 week picture to my day-of-birth picture at 39w 5d. I think the baby engaged at 39w 3d - that's when I started to feel different.

    It sounds like if she's not engaged she is at least starting to drop down there - good news x
