Never did with DS and i wondered if the head does engage with a 2nd pregnancy?
Last few days it feels like my bump has got smaller and i can suddenly eat a meal without crippling indigestion, also DP said the bump looks a different shape and my legs are much crampier/prone to pins and needles.
Baby is wriggly but not kicking as hard as before, though i think i's still moving as much, just with less force IYKWIM?
I am 36 weeks now - is it just normal for this stage (have no memories of last time at all!) And the moving with less force - that's normal too isn't it?!
my pregnancy book says head may not engage until labour with 2nd and subsequent babies but I am 34 weeks with dc2 and the midwife said yesterday that baby's head has started to engage. My bump is lower, measured 33cm instead of 34 and I feel like there is something heavy sitting in my pelvis (I guess that's coz htere is somehting heavy sitting in my pelvis!). My book also says during hte last few weeks the movements should be as frequent but not as forceful due to baby having less room to move
at ChocolateRH - Im 37 weeks with ds2, and am yet to piss myself.
I didnt think the baby engaged until labour after youve had your first. However, where the babies bum used to be, there isnt anything now, it just feels like jelly! And I keep going for a wee, and nothing happens at all! Does this sound like hes engaged? And what does that mean re going into labour (time wise). Am on a massive nesting spree today!
I am on my 5th, and have the jelly feeling at the top of my bump as well as feeling like I need loo all the time. I have been feeling physically irritable, like I can't sit still, but have still managed to avoid housework today. I am 37 and a half weeks now. Hoping it won't be too long though, as long as it isn't on Eid, would be nice before though. Have booked hairdresser's appointment for cut and colour, on Tuesday, so that might just do it!
