Hi everyone..

i saw my mw last week and she wrote in my notes that i was 4/5th and todays appointment she's put im 2/5th..is that good?

I dont understand it. it says on the internet that it goes in 5th

So do i have to get to 0/5th or 5/5th before im ready to give birth?

Please help me as im so confused

depends if she has said engaged after it. I saw one MW who always said how far engaged I was and another who said how much still had to go in!!

yes i think its how mush of the head is still out of the pelvis. so 2/5 means its on its way! 0/5 means its well and truly engaged.
