    sorry mods if this is in the wrong section...
    but theres just something on my notes that i don't understand.. well i think i dont anyway :doh:

    i know that presentation = "ceph" means head down..

    but next to that in the grid, it says

    Rein PP to Brim... and the midwife has wrote "free".
    she's wrote "free" in every box since 27 weeks (i go every 2 weeks).
    does that mean my pelvis is free of babys head??
    and she's no where near engaging?? :think:
