It really doesn't mean anything, my first didn't actually engage until labour started and thats when i started dilating and that was bang on my due date at 40 weeks

Well I'm 37 weeks, 5 days and my girl is breeched. She is staying in my ribcage and despite the pains and pressure, nothing is happening. My doc said that she is pushing with her legs, and thats the pressure I feel. I want her out so badly but we are waiting to see if she flips by 39 weeks. If not, I have to have a c-section done. My doc refuses to try to manually move her, and I'm still closed and high. Just a waiting game I guess

Well I will be 41 weeks on monday and no baby yet I am being induced Tuesday which usually takes 3 days for me. I have had 2 others like this so I hate labour it is never fun for me.
You just handle it bc u have too we can change anything so try to relax and go with it.
As for the women who's  baby is breech right now wow that is alot to take. I have heard that manually trying to turn a baby can have alot of risks so maybe that is why. I hope all works out for u though
Good luck ladies
