Two weeks ago I was told that baby's head is 3/5 engaged I was just coming up to 35 weeks at the time and hoped this was a good sign. Over the last week or so I think my bump has dropped a bit more, it looks a little lower when I stand and now seems overhang my pubic bone. It was definitely higher before, I've noticed that my knickers have to sit really low! This makes me think she may have engaged a bit deeper even since then, have an appointment today so will hopefully have it confirmed then. What I am wondering is, why haven't I experience 'lightening'? I thought this was to be expected but I still get really puffed out climbing the stairs. Early this morning too she was kicking me quite high up in the ribs, I've never even noticed her kicking me that high in the ribs before. So, if she has dropped down, why am I not feeling a bit of relief higher up? Does anyone know? Have you experience this?
