    Just back from my midwife appointment and thankfully the baby is head down now :D And she's 4/5 palpable? Can someone tell me what this means?

    I also found out that I'm now anaemic (sp) so had to have even more blood taken :(

    I was quite disappointed with the appointment though :( Dunno what i expected though...i just get dead excited beforehand and imagine they are going to say "Oh my gosh....your in labour already!!! :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

    But no such luck :(

    :D:D:D

    That means that the midwife can feel 4/5th of the babys head and that 1/5th is in your pelvis. When you are 1/5 then you are fully engaged and ready.
