    In my antenatal notes, under the presentation section the consultant put cephalic, 3/5. Now I know it means she's head down and going into the pelvis but does it mean she's 3/5s engaged or 3/5s can be felt (therefore she's 2/5s engaged)??

    I think it means that the mw can feel 3/5 of the head above the pelvis.

    At my last appointment my wee man was still brim, so it is a good sign for you. xxx

    with 2nd and subsequent pregnancies they can engage before labour but they can pop back out too coz you've stretched before
