    i do honestly feel like baby has dropped, already!!

    i am seeing the midwife tomorrow....but i am feeling so much pressure in my pelvis and lower bump that i am convinced she will tell me boo boo has gone head down..

    anyone else any experience or know of babies becoming engaged at 28 and a half weeks???? i know they can pop back out and turn again but did anyone's engage really early but then not come for a few more weeks..?

    babies will gt engaged but that just means there head is down in the pelvis it doesnt mean she is getting ready or anything, my boy was engaged from 34 weeks but they could still move his head round freely.

    it wount become fixed down there till week 36/37 if its ur first, if its a following pregnancy some babies dont even engaged till labour

    Yeah that is possible. My little one is head down but not engaged according to the mw last week. Do get lots of pressure at points and my hips n lower back really feel it now.

    Nothing to worry about though hun x

    it doesnt mean LO is engaged though, they can be head down without being engaged, that usually happens late on xx

    my lo was head down from 18 weeks, the pressure caused everything to swell and made it hard to sit, walk and keep my legs shut, he then became engaged at 34 weeks but like i said his head still moved lol

    My babba became engaged at 32 weeks. Got scanned last week and he's 2/5 in relation to brim which means 3/5 of his head is engaged. Xxx
