can someone explain what it means when at 37 weeks i have been told that the relationship to brim is 2/5. three weeks ago it said 4/5 does this mean the baby has come out of position and what will the next stages be and how long from now before labor.

In the UK they talk about the palpable part of the head - the part they can feel above the brim, if it's the same where you are then it means the head has dropped down another 2 inches. However, it is possible for the baby's head to pop in and out of the pelvis, it's probably best to clarify it at your next appointment if you're not sure. I don't think it means anything in relation to when you'll go into labour though!
