    Default Is Bub's engaged?

    In the last few days I have had this feeling like my baby could just pop its head out, this happens when I squat down to pick something up and also when I go to the toilet. Can anyone tell me what this means? I am only 34 weeks and my first baby didn't "engage" unitl 37 weeks. Aslo the pressure in there has been so bad that I can hardly walk sometimes, do you think it all could be related? My next appointment with midwife isn't for another week.

    Second babies don't usually engage until labour, they have more space than first baby did due to your uterus being more stretched. So they tend to bob up and down and move about. It might be down low but it also may change, so don't worry too much
