well, probably... The midwife was fairly certain, although not concerned by it at all! Does his engaging now mean anything, other than that my baby is lazy and wanted a seat?

I'm told I'll get a scan after my 36 week appt, so am not worried about this at all yet, but have no idea what it means, if anything! Is he likely to un-engage?

anyone else had this?

Is this your first or have you had babies before?
DS (my 2nd) was transverse at every appointment I had until the week I went into labour it is more common in 2nd + babies not to engage headwise before labour itself.
Even if it is your first there is still heaps of time for baby to move and get head down.
