Second DC 2/5ths engaged at 36 weeks, early labour or meaningless?

I think it's fine/normal - I'm sure all my DCs were at the engaged stage for bloody ages before anything happened. Certainly with No 4 I was engaged and uncomfortable for at least a couple of weeks.

Both of mine engaged at around 36 weeks and they spent the last 4 weeks tapdancing on my bladder! (DD1 arrived the day before her due date and DD2 on her due date!)

My DD was engaged at 35 weeks and then the little tinker had to be persuaded out at 42 weeks when I was induced... hmm

DD fully engaged at 31 weeks, born 8 weeks later. Midwife said it was of no significance. Obviously, she was right.

Mine has been engaged since about 34 weeks still waiting (38 weeks now). Midwife said it could stay like that for ages. I think it has probably moved in and out a bit. At least its headed in the right direction...

My friend's second was engaged from about 36 weeks and she didn't arrive until 41 by ELCS.

I'm 35 weeks. Baby keeps bobbing up and down and am 1cm dilated. I doubt anything will happen though! It's just a cruel tease!

My DC2 was engaged from around 34 weeks (I think, can't really remember!). Born at 39 weeks. Am 37 weeks now and this one has been 1/5 since 33 weeks. Sorry but all I think it means is at least the baby is heading in the right direction and nothing more...
