    cephalic is just the position, meaning down. if its engaged it would say ENG and how much, like mine is eng 3/5. some are cephalic and free meaning head down but not engaged. hope this helps xx

    engagement is another matter entirely, that bit is purely about presentation. If engagement or palp isn't mentionned anywhere then probs not engaged, but then it would probably say "free" somewhere :hug:

    mine say lots of things... of course you need to be able to actually decipher what has been written... My mw has the most awful AWFUL handwriting. :rotfl: :rotfl:

    Don't worry Paiges mummy... not all babies engage and its not a sign of how long your labour will be or that there will be problems... :)

    Mine don't mention it - there isn't even a space for it to be mentionned until my 36 week check. Althoguh I barely see my m/w as I am apparantly very low risk. Either that or I smell :lol:
    Don't worry about it - babies do their own thing, the more you want them down in your pelvis the more they'll grab a hold of your ribs and stay there :twisted: evil things :lol:
