    At my midwife's appointment last week, when I was 39 weeks pregnant, my baby hadn't engaged and it's my first. I think it may have engaged now as it doesn't move about as much, I just feel its limbs moving.

    I had an appointment last Friday (36+3) and they told me that baby was engaged :happydance: This is my first

    Of course that doesn't necessarily mean anything, but it still got my hopes up :)

    Thanks girls. I read somewhere its about 36 weeks with first one. Guess it varies. Wonder if the pubic bone hurts more when the baby engages, I have a lot of pain there right now so I hope not. xx

    i've been 3/5ths engaged since 37 weeks, since about 36 and a half weeks i've felt uncomfortable in the pelvic area, so i've assumed thats why?:shrug:

    Baby has been head down since 28 weeks and over the past week been feeling quite a bit of pressure down there...midwife today said she was 4/5ths palpable so just on the brim. Not entirely expecting her to stay there or move any further for a while though!
