How early can baby engage

Hello ladies,

I'm 33 + 2 which I know is early for the baby to probably hasn't but last 2 days I've felt a lot of pressure down there and have been quite sore. Also feels like the baby is in a really uncomfortable position making me walk a bit funny. I've been waking up to empty my bladder 8-10 times a night. Is this normal at 33 weeks? Not sure how I'm going to cope with the discomfort for another 7 weeks, especially at work!

In my last pregnancy my daughter was head down from about 28 weeks . So I think it's fairly common op .

My baby has been 2/5ths engaged since 32 weeks. At my 34 week midwife appointment he was 4/5ths engaged and this is my second baby currently 37+4.
