head engaged?

is it a sign that the head is engaged when the baby moves less frequently than usual? its still moving but nowhere near as much as it normally does. im 38+1


  • sounds like it must be getting pretty cramped in there at 38weeks! your midwife should be able to tell you if the head is engaged image
  • My babies head didn't engage until the day before my waters went and he wasn't moving around very much by then - its more a case of having no room. Even if their head is engaged they can still wiggle loads.

    Friend gave bith 2 weeks ago, her lo's head had been engaged for a month but still had plenty of movement from lo.

    Good luck xx
