    need a bit of help. midwife said he was nicely engaged so i asked how much as i read on this forum theirs stages...

    so she said I CAN FEEL 2/5th of his head...

    I don't think it means anything though, my baby's head is still completely free at 38+4 and my MW says it means nothing...I hope she's right!

    How do they tell if the baby is engaged? Is it an internal check, and if so when do they know when to check....? :hugs:

    It always suprises me how much they can tell by just feeling your tummy! Hope all goes well for you x

    I was at MW today and she told me that baby's head is still free, but made no comment that this was a problem.
