    Hi all,
    I just had an appointment with the consultant this afternoon. She seems quite happy that my platelet levels are stable (still low but not dropping... Phew!).
    But, I just looked through my notes now I am home and noticed that she has put down 3/5 in the section where they normally put 'free' - she didn't say anything to me, and arranged to see me in 4 weeks time when I'll be 38 weeks. But it's kind of freaked me out a bit - if I am 3/5 engaged, is it likely LO will appear sooner rather than later? Or is it normal to be engaged at this stage? The fact she didn't say anything to me make me think it's normal, but I am stll quite surprised as I was 'free' when I saw the midwife last week! :oooo:

    Hiya, LO was 3/5 engaged at 34 weeks, where he was free at 32 and I'm still here lol. Nothing to worry about, in fact they can move back up as well as down x
