37 weeks today-baby's head not engaged

Hi everyone

Went to see my midwife today,and she said that baby's head is not engaged yet.She said it was nothing to stress out about,but we have to check that it happens this week.I asked her not to give me the worst case scenario,cause i did not want any bad news.Trying to stay positive,but now i wished i had asked.

What do you guys think?Do I have anything to worry about.

Thanx,Have a good day everyone

I am also 37 weeks pregnant.
I think that you just stay positive and things will work out for
the best. Baby still has some time to move. Read about
certain exercises one can do.
My problem is that baby's head is too low but my
cervix is still closed.

Hi Angie.

I dont think you really need to worry. Apparemtly in first time pregnancies the babies normally engage just before you start labour, Well in most cases.
