    I guess anything is possible but I also know that it is possible for baby to move back out IFYKWIM.
    Just remember that every women & baby is an individual & will do it the way they see fit. Plus once you hit 37 weeks thats classed as full term & baby is welcome to make an appreance at any time!
    If you are concerned about the B/H go & ask to sit on the monitor for a bit to see whats happening.

    My 4th baby was very low and right into my pelvis - full engaged at around 37 weeks. Generally, especially around baby no.4 this doesn't happen. Usually they don't engae until labour. We were thinking the same thing - that I would go early. Hmm, yeah 1 day early

    I'd say yup your baby is engaged by the ammount of pressure your feeling down there.
    As Fiona said, anytime from next week 37 weeks is full term, fingers crossed bub doesn't make you wait too much longer then
