    A friend of mine's baby's head was fully engaged by 32 weeks and she went over by 11 days. She also had backache and cramps but was told by her midwife that it's because of how her little boy was sitting.

    Could be anytime really. Many women go into labour then the baby engages so it really isn't an indication.
