    ENG means 'engaged'. Fixed means that the baby's head has engaged and cannot be moved by your MW.

    LIE is probably the position the baby is lying in.

    ROL means Right occipito lateral. Which means the baby is lying on their mother's right side, head down, with their back facing mother's side.

    Fixed probably means that head is engaged so that its not likely to come out of the pelvis now... ROL means Right Occiput Lateral which I think means baby is lay facing ur side towards the right but not certain on that :)

    Hope that helps a little!

    I'm a nerd. I like to read up about subjects that interest me.

    I've tried to learn as much about pregnancy as I can. I'll never be able to experience it first hand so I want to try and understand how it all works.

    Good for you! Mhairi's daddy was a bit like that although one day he did try to explain the playdental to me....... :think: :think:

    Oh, and when I asked him to get Aptamil at the supermarket the first time I gave Mhairi formula he appeared with a tub of Aptamil and a litre of semi-skimmed "to mix it with". :rotfl: :rotfl:

    God love him!

    DebbieM you are such a lucky girl....my OH hasnt a clue and I dont think it would occur to him to google my maternity notes let alone anyone elses to help them out!
    He is worried that I might go into labour before we get our classes as we are having to start them late, and keeps saying 'but how will we know what to do?' :shock:
    I am sure we will work it out if it comes to that....one of us has been reading books and this forum......lol :lol:
