    I went to the midwife last thursday, i was 31 +5 and she said the babies head was down and resting on the top of the pelvis, i looked at her worried and she said it doesn't mean i will go into labour,

    I got told when i was having Amy that the head doesn't need to be engaged to go into labour and that is what contractions are for- to push the baby down!! But then i thought that must be right because how do women with Breech babies go into labour, My aunty didn't want a c section and all 3 of hers were breech, bum first and they went with her wishes and had them vaginally. :shock:
    Don't worry too much Hun, if you are worried ring the hospital and ask, that is what they are there for.
    :D :D
