    Since Thursday the baby has become engaged... only 4/5 but still its scary!
    I felt less pregnant and that must be why because baby has moved down so is less in my belly. Also explains the bad leg pain i had last week, i wonder how long it will take to get to 1/5 :D:D

    I dont think it makes a difference really they can go from not engaged to fully when they want really or could go backwards, but its sort of nice to think its going in the right direction. :)

    Sounds very promising they wouldn't bother measuring it if they meant nothing.

    I was 1/5 at 31weeks I didn't take much notice that's nothing, I wonder if it'll improve at my appointment next week? Somethings changed for sure.

    Ohh so my appointment on 11th should hopefully involve this? At my last appointment on 21st December she just measured my tummy and checked heartbeat. I asked if she could tell what position LO was in, so she had a little feel and said 'His head seems low, but your scan later will tell you' and left it at that like it wasn't too important. Scan showed me he is transverse and has been ever since though :( just hope he turns!

    In your notes it should say what position they are in and if they are 'free' ... this is the first week its been 4/5 not free... they have been checking for weeks i think! I have appointments with the hospital on the 17th to let me know my induction date if i haven't given birth by then (due 19th) so they must be expecting me to go to 40 weeks... but at least i know baby is heading the right way! x

    I could suddenly do the middle button up on my coat today that I've never been able to since I got it at least 6 weeks ago. I wonder if that means something?

    Well my belly seemed to disapear slightly and was more floppy and less solid, because its moved down so is less in my stomach so it could be a sign!
    Hopefully it won't move because im 38 week tomorrow so not long left for it to start messing about lol x

    I had a consultant appt at 26 weeks and she said head was 5/5 engaged.... is that not pretty early to be engaged???


    He's been breech the whole time (even at 25 weeks) and he's obviously now fancying hanging upside down for the first time. Just didnt expect him to be engaged this early on..
