    my midwife said by textbook babies start to engage at 35 weeks and engage a fifth a week. Of course, every one and every pregnacny is different, some start to engage alot earlier, some dont engage at all untill in established labor.

    Your feel a heavy pressure down below, and your bump will proberly drop x

    I didnt feel when my baby engaged, i just know that it progressively became heavier and more uncomfortable. No 'moment' though.

    It was part engaged about 35 weeks if i remember rightly, and fully engaged at my check up at just gone 37 weeks.

    Its nothing you feel, it just happens, I noticed it with my son because my bump dropped dramatically, that and I got a lot more uncomfortable, you will feel like your literally walking with a head between your legs...because you are :rofl:

    well i'm on number 3 and mine has only engaged the last 2 weeks and it is still only 4/5ths so literally only just! Ive been told that they pop in and out at there leisure and can wait right up until labour to get properly engaged xxx

    i think this many weeks (i'm 33 too) is so annoying because it's so near the end... until you count that it could be potentially (if you go 2 weeks over) 9weeks which is almost 2.5months :|

    think i was told after 36 weeks, some babies dont till labour!
    engaging felt horrible with amber, i felt heavier, could tell my bump dropped abit, my lady bits were in complete agnoy, i started to get the 'waddle' getting up and down was becoming harder.
