I'm 32 weeks nearly and just discovered am 1/5 engaged. Interested if this has happened to you before - if so was baby born early or around due date?

Dc1 started to engage at this stage and was 5/5 by 37 weeks. She was still a week late fsmile

Mine was 1/5 engaged at 32 weeks and arrived 34+6. Everyone's different so you never can know. I'd definitely recommend getting a hospital bag ready though because I wasn't ready at all!

Also Dc2 was completely free until I went into labour. So I really would take engagement with a pinch of salt it doesn't really mean anything in terms when when you'll deliver. I'm 33 weeks with Dc3 and they're still free so far .

Just try and enjoy Christmas before the madness begins !! fgrin good luck flowers

At my 34 week appointment (yesterday!) LO was 4/5 engaged, midwife said it didn't mean anything at all!

1/5 or 0/5 engaged is where baby is deeply engaged which means baby probably won't move now smile. I think I was filly engaged around 36/37 weeks baby came at 37+4

DS was engaged early and arrived at 40+5. I'm afraid it doesn't mean much!

Baby dropped at 32 weeks and I still went a week over. Last few weeks of pregnancy were very uncomfortable as the baby was putting so much pressure on my pelvis

My babies were all engaged early on, properly engaged no bobbing in and out.... They all turned up at 42wks plus.. I have big babies but am small, they were all long so I think they had to engage as there was no space!

But it doesn't mean anything in terms of labour generally and it's common for babies to not engage in bob in and out of the pelvis right up to labour and birth.

I think it just means I'll have to suffer with needing to pee every 5 seconds a little sooner than I was expecting smile
