So on my antenatal record(qld) there is a column that says descent. I had my antenatal appt yesterday at the hospital and they wrote 5/5 in this column.. I tried googling it but there is way too much conflicting info. I thought baby's head was engaged as I had a scan on wed n she said baby's head was right down but now after google it is saying 5/5 means not engaged at all(feeling slightly gutted at the moment) I'm 36+3 with dd2.
Anyone have any idea?

5/5 on antenatal record. What does it mean?

AFAIK there are 2 ways they write it, either into the pelvis or out. If they are writing it into the pelvis then 5/5 means bubs is born and I don't think that's what they mean haha so I would say it means bubs isn't engaged at all which is perfectly normal for subsequent babies (to go in and out of the pelvis) it's just because you've gestated before it doesn't mean anything is wrong or bub wont re-engage. Subsequent babies can bob in and out and some wont even engage/re-engage until you start labour.
