Sadly baby can engage & disengage right up until labour. DD1 engaged at 32wks, stayed engaged but didn't arrive until 41+1. DD2 engaged & disengaged continually until 39+4 when she sent me into labour, sadly she still didn't emerge until 41wks. It's exciting hearing baby has engaged but alas it's not considered one of the signs labour is close.
im 4-5ths of engaged in my pregnancy is this the start or the end of the stage before i go into labour ?

Hi Carmen, it'll depend entirely upon your own baby, my 1st engaged slowly over several wks whilst my 2nd didn't engage at all until I started early labour with her 10days before she was born. Those contractions are designed to help push baby down & help you dilate ready for the birth so them coming stronger/more frequent is a good thing.
