....I'm pretty sure. When the baby had the hick-ups today I could feel the head way down there, like right in my pelvis. I felt pressure in the tailbone and perineum area, cervix etc. Kind of crazy, I never felt anyhing like that with DS. Practically feels like the baby could fall out :LOL

Last night I was getting really horrible pressure in my lowerback and behind ( ) and felt so horrible. And she was moving around alot which made it worse. Does it engaged just mean dropped? I don't think I've dropped. Though I just moved a while back and we still don't have a proper mirror in the house so I haven't taken a good look at myself in a while. :LOL

Eva dropped around 32 weeks.
This one still hasn't done so.

But yeah, that's what it feels like. I remember after Eva dropped, I was walking around bow legged, wanting to reach down to hold her in! :P

when a baby has engaged(dropped) the head is down in the pelvis...this baby is definitely down there(not completely but pretty close)and the midwife confirmed it at my appt last week.

Some people carry low anyway and it feels like baby is engaged the entire pregnancy. Some babies don't engage until after mama goes in labour.

This baby still comes up a bit sometimes...after 4 babies I guess theres lots of room in there.

But I feel pressure on my bladder, pain through my buttocks when I walk and a lot of pain in my pubic bone on the front.

The way you describe it World Shakerz sounds just like how I feel.
