Sorry not what you were hoping for but ds2 was engaged at 38 weeks and then disengaged, was subsequently born at 42+2 via c section as he had no intention of coming on his own. We always joke that he was too comfortable in there nothing to do with the fact that he was a 10lb 2oz porker, no

DS was undiagnosed breech.
DD moved up and down, in and out of being engaged.

Both were emcs.

My ds didn't fully engage till I was in the birth pool almost ready to push.

DS never engaged at all until I was in proper labour - Had a really high bump even the day before.

Makes no difference to anything.

DD was fully engaged at 31 weeks, born 8 weeks later.

DS never engaged, born at 37 weeks.
