I am 36+4 wks and yesterday my ob said the baby's head is 1/5. What does this mean? I have had pressure down there, mild shooting type feelings, some mild period like cramps every now an then and I think from the look of me I'm carrying low...there is some space between my boobs and top of belly.

Baby's head is 1/5? What does it mean?

depending on doctor/midwife/hospital it either means that the babys head is 1/5 engaged and they can feel 4/5 of the head or the other way around, 4/5 of the babys head is engaged and they can feel 1/5 of the head.
is it written as engaged or above/below brim???

It means that the baby's head is 1/5 engaged into the pelvis and the Ob can feel 4/5 of the head above the brim (pubic bone).
