engaging

this might sound really stupid, but when your baby engages does it add pressure to your bladder or does it relieve it abit? i cant really remember anything from first time round, and everything is different 2nd time.

From what I can remember it makes it worse because they just constantly kick and punch you in it too sorry hun. Kiss

i thought as much. Oh well looks like i'll be needing incontinance pads. Baby isnt engaged yet tho, well he wasnt last week, at midwifes 2morro so will find out then.

i think it goes 5/5 then 4/5 and so on 1/5 is when theyre ready - although with me it was a case of he wasnt engaged at all to my waters breaking with 2days!!

Well that is what I thought mummyheath but when my friend had her baby it was how Hayley said it was, but with both mine 1/5 was least engaged and 5/5 was like fully engaged Suspect

if it is your 2nd the head might not engage until you are in labour. but I remember that pressure on your bladder- it was awful, I hated peeing all the time (I have the bladder of a camel normally)- Im sure it just happens when baby moves and uses your bladder as wither a pillow or a punch bag!!

This is my 2nd, so im kinda hoping this is this the case. Cant go anywhere without feeling like im gonna pee my pants and even when i go to the toilet, half the time i dont actually need to go! The joys of being pregnant!!!
