    Hello ladies,
    I had my 36 week appt today and midwife says baby is still free. I'm also measuring 2 weeks behind. I've been advised to bounce on my birth ball LOTS.

    Bit worried though - does this mean I'm going to be overdue?

    my baby didn't engage at all, never mind fully, till a couple of hours before he was born. I was also scared of going very overdue but went into labour naturally at 40+3 and he came the next afternoon.

    Thanks ladies, that's good to hear. I've been bouncing for an hour now, baby is probably totally confused!

    I'm 39 + 4 and the baby is still not engaged. I'm pretty sure I'll go late. :dohh:
