    Hi there.

    I went to the midwife today too, and I was told that the head was engaged. I am just over 33wk, this is my 2nd baby so I kinda knew already (and my bump has dropped)

    With my 1st baby he was engaged from 35wks and I went full term with him and had him on his due date.

    I wouldn't worry too much as the baby can always move again this early. Im sure you'll be fine.

    head engaging doesnt mean labour will happen in so many weeks.
