38+6 today had midwife appointment everything fine and no problems but they want to book me in for induction if I haven't had baby by 40+6 (bit rushed if you ask me)
Had a look in my notes at home as I always do and the note for engagement says "long".
I have had a Google and I can't find what it refers to can anyone fill me in a bit more? It has said "long" since my 28 week appointment so I am assuming that not much has changed and baby is still pretty high up - very happy to be told differently.
Long just means that baby is not lying across your tummy or diagonally (both bad!) but straight up and down. Having written it down I am not sure why but that’s what it means, not much to do with engagement but part of the palpation summary.
