Hi. I was at my 27 week antenatal appointment there and he midwife had a feel on my bump and told me the head was engaged, that explains why I've been at the loo every 5 secs. She told me to expect to go early. Has anyone else been told this? What does it mean?

happy days- i'm sure she means that you will be heading to the labour ward a little sooner than expected- so you might only have 11-12 weeks left yipeeeee :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll Don't worry though, i'm sure she would have let you know if something was abnormal!!

I'm over 36 weeks and the head is still not engaged! Part of me wants it to happen but then I'm told its quite uncomfortable so I'm not sure. It usually is a sign the baby will come early!
