I'm 28 weeks and the doctor has just advised me that the head is engaged. Just wondering if this is normal? Of course I'm worrying.....also doctor has put me on bedrest.

this is my first child. On bedrest I a__sume because the head is engaged and also I have alot of cramping when I stand up.

Christina as far as I know with first pregnancy the head engages earlier, few weeks before labour. i a__sume head puts a lots of pressure on cevrix so in order to avoid cramps/contractions or any problem it is important to stay on bed and not on your feet. Did the doc recomended any medication? magnesium?
