At my recent midwife appointment my midwife confirmed that baby has already engaged and been having constant Brixton hicks - does this mean I'm going to go into langur early ?

Not necessarily! My baby was engaged for about 6 weeks - from 36 to 42 weeks.

Mine was engaged at 34 weeks, I'm 40+2 now!

Not sure if it really means anything to be honest

I was engaged from 32 weeks. Had baby at 40+8!

No it just means they are in position. Why didn't you ask her?

I forgot to ask - I've got 2 fibroids and had lower posterior placenta through out so got overwhelmed when she gave me the news that the placenta is in right position and fibroids not in the way as that was a scare !

Fully engaged? Check your notes.

I was 2/5 engaged from 37 weeks and that didn't change until the day I went into labour at 41 + 3. I had braxton hicks throughout my entire pregnancy, which were never painful just tight, which got much much tighter towards the end, but look how over I went!
