    My first was engaged from 37 weeks and waters broke on due date.

    Currently pregnant with second and have been engaged on and off since 36 weeks (apparently this one is a mover and groover). Due date is today... poke poke... you can come out now......

    Sigh! Best of luck!

    This makes sense, DS2 was born posterior brow presentation, DS1 was posterior too though.

    Oh good luck!!!

    I had another midwife app last Friday and baby still engaged in the same position and still 3/5ths down... She was quite surprised that it was still engaged and she was expecting it to move again but obviously not!! 35weeks tomorrow and really feeling it now,second babies are way harder... Or I'm way older hahah!

    I was like you, my 2nd baby engaged really early and I was surprised. She was stuck firmly down in there for weeks before she was born at 40+2. She came out with a big dint in her nose where she'd been squished in there.

    I'm now 34 weeks with my 3rd and no sign of bub engaging yet, I don't think this one will till D day

    Both mine engaged early, but I carry low. With dd2, she was soooo low, engaged really early, but ended up going in for induction via ARM at 40+2,

    I suppose I'm no help, engaged early, but bub didn't come early.
