    past few days havent felt well at all, felt sick, hot flushes, moody, heavy, sore
    just very off........

    midwife today all well with me and baby been very lucky in pregnancy, blood pressure been perfect, urine all ok, anyway baby is fully engaged she couldnt feel head at all

    she seems to think it could be now or next 2 weeks... but cant see me going over?

    what do u think, does head being engaged mean labour is close?

    had lunch out yesterday and visitors today so next few days am being very unsociable i really need some time out.... and dreading the heat!

    cant believe its all going to happen very soon!!

    Exciting! I have no idea whether that means labour will be any time soon. I know that i was 2/5 engaged at 37+5 and that doesn't mean anything.

    Sorry your not feeling too good though. :(
    Ive had a few off nights and i keep getting ear ache every evening! xx

    You know it sounds positive, but noone can really predict when baby will come. My friend got told similar and was stir crazy by the time she was a week over due. So I think it's best not to believe them!!

    Yeh defo fully head down! I just don't know if they can stay that way for a long time. I presume they can. But listen to the MW and look forward to the possibility of it being soon :D

    If it helps, im pretty damn unsociable at the moment. And yes me too, i really hope its just sun and not muggy :(

    I am ok thank you :) xx
