    this is to anyone who has had babies before. this is my 3rd so i know what it feels like. i feel like some days his head is in my pelvis then others its not. i can feel him literally dipping in and out cuz i get a sharp pain when he is dipping in down there in my area lol. anyone else getting this? everytime i see the midwife he seems to be free.

    Yes, this has been happening to me since 34 weeks - she's very low today but seems to go in and out - I think its more common with second and further on pregnancies than with first ones.

    Yes I've been getting this. Some days he/she feels really low and I get all the associated pains, but the mw says he/she still isn't engaged at all when she's checked. I guess it's just because everything is looser from being pregnant the first time and I know that it's common for babies not to engage right up until labour with subsequent pregnancies for that reason. There's nothing to hold them there lol.

    Yep, I usually engage at weekends (go for long walks) then go to bed and the next day she's out again so by the time I get to see the midwife on a Wednesday she's free... she's still not engaged and i'm due today :dohh: so annoying! Nevermind :) xxx

    I think little Zz might be indulging in similar activity. Must get bouncing and walking and hope for some proper full on engagement!!
