34+5, second pregnancy and 4/5 engaged - early baby?

Hi all,

I had heard that second babies don't engage until they're pretty well ready to make their entrance...

Only noticed on my notes when I got home that baby is 4/5th engaged but palpable (I'm presuming this means the MW can feel 4/5ths of his head above my pelvis). I've been having lots of BH for a good few weeks now and feel alot heavier low down.

Anyone else engaged this early with a second (or third etc) and still gone to term or have you gone into labour shortly after?

I am pregnant with my 3rd baby. Baby has had head engaged for weeks now. Am currently 40+4 and no signs of anything happening yet.
