    DD1 didn't engage until I was in labour and was born at 40+10, DS didn't fully until I was fully dilated and had my waters broken born at 39+5, both were posterior. DD2 was engaged a few days before she was born at 36+1 but I'm not sure how much or when she actually engaged. This time I'm pretty sure baby is not engaged yet and I'm currently 36+6.
    As for 'cleaning out' I didn't noticeably do so with DD1, mildly did so with DS on the day I was in labour and definitely didn't with DD2.

    Have just been told my bub might be posterior... Were you able to have a vaginal birth with your posterior bubs?? Did you do anything to try and get them out of the posterior position? I've had a bit of a look and there are a few positions they suggest. Going to start doing it now and hope for the best!

    It sometimes can but its not always the case some babies don't engage until you go in to labour.....sometimes they can a few weeks before labour.....

    DS was breech and never engaged.

    DD engaged 2/5th at 32 weeks. I was soooo excited!! But she wasn't born until her due date.

    I engaged at 37 weeks and by 39 weeks was 2/5. My little girl was induced when I was 8 days over, she was right down and ready to go but nothing was happening! All the best for your birth x
