Anyone ever feel like a hand should be sticking out and waving??

I am 37 weeks pregnant. As of Thursday, Baby Girl was at -3 station (which means she's descending, she just hasn't settled down or engaged yet). Today I feel her head way low and can feel it twisting around. Quite a few of the movements she's made in the past few minutes literally makes my labia part. Has anyone else experienced this? She needs to cook a bit longer, but it feels like she's trying to get out!

  • Yes I did experience this with my first baby. She was engaged for 6 weeks! They say it is almost never more than 4. Yeah right. I felt like I was sitting on a baseball all the was her head!

  • This is the first time I've ever NOT felt like that at the end of pregnancy. (This is my 5th pregnancy.) Usually I feel like my babies are trying to punch their way out.
