    It's called lightening I think. It's the baby and your body getting ready for head to be engaged. I asked the same question a while back, and then the midwife mentioned it!! Kinda takes your breath away I find!! Xx

    All good signs hun.

    I've found his head engaging to be the most uncomfortable. It was so bad last night, I thought he was going to make an appearance but nope, eviction is our only option lol xx

    Apparently it's can be to do with dilation. It freaked me out a bit as I didn't have it in my last pregnancy, but it can stop me in my tracks this time round.
