Hiya! I'M 39 weeks today aswell. Is your due date 3rd August?
I've had weekly midwife appointments because of high blood pressure and was 3/5 at 37, still 3/5 at 38 weeks!! So my little ones been in position 3 for nearly three weeks now, so I doubt labour imminent sorry!
It means nothing at all sadly. DS (my first baby) didn't engage at all, not even part of the way, until I was 6cm dilated and he was born exactly on his due date. DN (SILs first baby) was fully engaged from around 34 weeks and she went overdue.
I don't think it means much but I'm 3/5 and am 39 weeks today (well by the scan dates anyway) so due around the same time. I'm just glad she is head down as I've got too much amniotic fluid and there is a risk she'll flip round.
Still fully enganged, and still nothing! I wish she hadnt told me now, its made me ten times more impatient.
The penguin walk does not look good lol!! and ive got my DD1 pony riding lesson later where im meant to run alongside pony as she is trotting, god help me, thats going to be fun, last week was hard enough!! Oh well, maybe it will encourage little one out!!
They do really have to keep an eye on how well the head is engaged though for several reasons, not least because if you suffered a PROM, the head being engaged or not-actually the general position of the baby as a whole- is very important.
It won't be long. Promise. They all come out in the end.
How longs a piece of string? Sorry but it'll be when baby is ready.
Neither ds1 or ds2 ever engaged, but dd (who was no3) was engaged from about 32 weeks. From 35 weeks she was as far down as she could go without actually hanging down between my legs but she didn't arrive until 41wks.
