Stupid Question

Okay I know this is my 3rd kid and I should know but I haven't exactly went through labor per say because of having contractions and then having csections due to decels. All morning ( the past 6hrs) I have had pain & pressure towards the front of my pubic bone and pressure around my rectum. Does that mean his head is engaged? I have had the pain before but it always goes away with a little walking but it isn't today. I just don't know what to make of it or if it is just a regular pregnancy thing.

not a stupid question! (I feel like since I was induced before labor started that I am "clueless" when it comes to what to expect even though this isn't my first!) I would say its possible. That kinda sounds like what I have had and my little guy has been engaged for a while.

Okay that is definately what it is. I know I probably shouldn't have but I checked up there and I could feel his head. So my next question is...does that mean labor is close since it isn't my 1st?

I wish Ic ould say yes to that! But the dr told me baby is completely engaged and he's been like that for a couple weeks Sad

And I was the opposite. My DS would engage some, but wouldn't stay engaged. A few hours before I had him, his head was still floating around. It could mean something, or not!
