Feb 8, 2009 6:48PM
I had a mw check yesterday and was reading my notes when I came home and it says I am 3/5 palpable- does this mean the babys head is 3/5 engaged??
I am a bit confused coz she said my cervix was away back and wasn't yet soft

Yeah, palpable literally means "to feel", ie palpable uterus at 12 weeks. MW can feel 3/5 of the head therefore you are 2/5 engaged.
