    Default Trying to understand obstetrician's scroll

    Does any one have any idea what
    -Presenting Part
    -Engagement
    - FHS/FM
    mean on the record card from the obstetricians?
    Also can anyone decipher his scribblings?

    It's very hard to read. Maybe mobile?

    Looks kinda like 'NE'.
    I've been a nurse for 15yrs and have a skill for deciphering doctors scribbles
    but this obstetrician really takes the cake!
    Thanks for your help Mummy12.

    Looks like it's got ++ next to it. Could it mean 2/5 engaged? How many weeks are you?
