39+1 and would like this letter lady to hurry up now! How long did it take for you to go into labour from 4/5 engaged? She was still free last Tuesday. And doctor was making sure I knew who to ring and making sure my partner is working local, should I be getting hopeful? X

Makes no difference at all, particularly if it's DC1.

My first was fully engaged at 31 weeks and born 8 weeks later.

DC2 didn't engage and labour started spontaneously and dramatically at 37 weeks.

So, some time in the next 3 weeks...!
