    Default 2nd baby, hasn't dropped yet

    I am now almost 37 weeks and bubs oblique (diagonal) and moving positions lots. My notes still say 5/5ths above brim so not even began to engage. Really starting to feel impatient but I guess everyone feels like that at this point.

    Default 2nd baby, hasn't dropped yet

    My second didn't engage until birth. Her head was so perfectly shaped, and her face was so 'unmashed'. In fact, she was breech until about 38+5 (and born 39+2)...

    With my first I pushed for 5 hours and he was stuck with just a bit of scalp out, then 2 failed vaccums and finally forceps. He had a full on conehead and looked pretty beat up. He was engaged by 37 weeks but didn't arrive until 40+4...
