    ouchh it hurts!! it feels sooo heavy when i walk! my bump has also dropped literally in the last day so could this be baby engaging and pushing on everything? :shrug: i was only reading a thread about it the other day and i was like 'oh i havnt got that luckily' boooo :dohh: anyone else? x

    I was 3/5 engaged last monday but i could swear by bump is about to hit the floor today, i think my little man is stacking weights in there :huh: and yesterday i was getting such bad cramps, so i defo reckon he's more engaged now. My "down there" isn't really swollen but if I didn't know better I'd swear I was starting to dilate :? xx

    I too was 3/5ths last week but he is definatately lower than a week ago, walking is difficult and i feel swollen down there, there is so much pressure! Something is definately going on!

    I think it sounds like baby engaging. Mine also feels swollen but I think that's just general weight pushing down as I don't think LO is engaged yet xx
