    Default How long after being fully engaged did you go into labour?

    Hi Girls,

    I had my 36 week check up today and my OB told me that bubs is fully engaged (0/5), to which he said 'excellent'!



    Im just wondering how long it took for you to go into labour after bubs fully engaging?

    Any feedback would be great so I don't freak out too much!

    I'm 38 weeks now with 2nd baby and not engaged... but first time round I was engaged at 35 weeks and baby didn't come out til I was induced at 41 weeks and 3 days!

    Good luck, hope it all goes smoothly for you whenever it happens!

    Wow, so it doesn't mean that Im going to go into labour in the near future! I thought that being engaged meant the birth was imminent. Phew.

    Thanx

    mum to be, its to do with how much of babys head is /is not in the pelvis... i think!
    Some docs/midwives write 0/5 to mean none or 0/5 of bubs head can be felt above the pelvis... but then to confuse you some write 0/5 to mean that none of bubs head is engaged at all.

    Yeah the morning that my waters broke I had a midwife appointment and she said I was 3/5. I was 39weeks pregnant. She was born the next day. I don't think it should be used an indication on impending labour or birth. Good luck though, you could be different.

    I was never fully engaged before labour. My friend though was for weeks before, so it depends on the bubs and if they're ready to come out or not.
