V painful engaged head at 38 weeks...

It feels like I've got a bowling ball being thrown against my pelvis.

I don't remember it taking my breath away last time!

Is it normal? Does it mean that she's back-to-back (which is what I suspect anyway!)?

And most importantly... does it mean she'll be early??

not sure that it means baby will be early but I hope so, my wee ones head has been engaged from 34 weeks and it is sooo uncomfy!! I think mine is OP too so I guess I better get off the sofa to get baby turned. Sitting down does seem to help but not easy when trying to entertain toddler too!

doesn't mean it'lkl be early. my first 2 felt like that, first was 2 weeks late, second was a day late.
first was right way round, second was back to back.

i knew ds2 was back to back cos i had 2 lumps (his knees) sticking out the front and a
dip between them lol

lots of ofp for you missus!
