    Default When did your baby engage?

    I am 36 weeks, 3 days & was just told bub is 3/5 engaged! Is this a good sign for an early delivery or due date delivery ??

    When did your bub engage & how far along were you?

    This is my 3rd baby, I am 35 weeks today, on Friday he was 3/5 engaged, I was sitting low for about a week before that. My first baby engaged at 36 weeks and I didn't notice any change but she came at 37 weeks. Hoping it means this one will come around the 37/38 week mark too

    When I was pregnant with my now toddler he didn't engage until I was fully dialated. I never experienced that "dropped" look or feeling. Currently 31 weeks and don't think anything will be different.

    It's amazing how everyone is so different. I definitely feel like he has dropped now... Feeling a lot of pressure on my bladder and feels very heavy there when I walk. Sometimes I have to stop walking as I get sharp pains .. Almost like he's resting on a nerve or something.

    I would really love for him to come early... Have been very lazy lately and haven't moved from the couch since starting maternity leave last week. Will have to start walking and trying to get labour going.

    2nd baby and has been engaged 3/5ths since 30 weeks, currently 37 + 4 and no bloody sign of labour!! I also thought engaging early would mean an earlier birth but obviously not in my case!
    At last midwife app baby has also moved into birthing position.....!

    DD engaged about 30-31 weeks. And stayed down there until she was out. Including one early labour which was stopped.
