baby is already engaged very low in my pelvis


My midwives were surprised since 2nd babies usually don't drop until just before delivery. I haven't had any contractions or lost my plug so that's good. In 12 days I'll be home-free for a homebirth
I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

I really do hope the little stinker comes a little early since our due date is the same day as my BILs wedding. Dh is one of the guys who stands up there with him. Usher? He's not the best man.

They were surprised, really?

My first dropped and engaged 8 weeks before birth!
It doesn't mean your imminent, don't worry!!

I dropped and engaged about 5 weeks early with my second.

This is my third, and she's already dropped too!

Station.
-4 to +5. The baby's position relative to a certain set of bones on the inside of you, I forget what they're called. 0 station is engaged, and I believe +5 is crowning.
