Yes, from what i read, if bub drops to cervix, he is engaged. I'll ask OB today about mine as well but i think mine is still pretty high up. The lady who gave birth at 35w did mention about her bub was engaged at the 34w scan........
Yes I think once bub is engaged means bub will come any day now. I'm sure my OB would have said if I was 'engaged'. He just said he was quite low down and must be pushing on my bladder. Also he was going to europe for a week but he didn't think I would need him. That would mean bub wasn't engaged.
You can ask OB but im sure he would tell you if bub was engaged. I don't think its something they would ignore.
I'm sure ob will tell you when bub is engaged. Carrying low doesn't mean engaged yet. It could be weeks away still.
@Gelati I'll get the gd test done next week. Lucky I don't have to fast. So I can still have breakfast and water before I go to melb pathology right?
@Minib - yep no need to fast if you are doing the shorter test. I accidentally fasted. But even when you eat breakfast don't have a huge breakfast just a light one and i've heard it's best not to have sugar? You can def have water. Goodluck with the sugary drink!
@bbhope - my friend said that bub usually moves down from week 36 onwards.
I'll have egg then cos all cereal has sugar.
Eggs on whole meal toast should be ok yeah?
I'm nervous about the sugary drink. Was it you that told me to have protein after the test so I don't feel too sick?
Oh also was looking at baby bjorn carrier range. Have you checked out the baby bjorn one range? The mesh one is $250. Babies r us have 22% off right now. They emailed the voucher yesterday I think.
Yes have protein and go for a walk. Anything that will burn off the sugar. Have water as well. Yep eggs on toast will be fine. Trust me you don't want to have sugar for breakfast anyways because you have to down that drink.
I think the carrier goes on sale frequently...i've seen it on sale at baby bunting and babies r us. But i;ve never seen the bouncer on sale. I think i still want to wait until bub is born before buying it. Would be good to try it out with bub. Thanks for letting me know tho
I'm thinking to wait until bub is born too because I just font know what's comfortable or not. It's not like bub needs it from day 1. Too many different opinion from friends so I'm just going to wait unless someone buys it for me as a gift.
Cool. I'll be there when they first open so I can get it over and done with.
