Look for a ring on its finger! Just kidding. I would guess that you would have to go to the doctor and have an ultrasound or something.

My baby has just engaged (I had it confirmed by the midwife yesterday). I now find it much harder to walk, as I can feel the baby really far down now, and I need to go to the loo even more often.

If you are past 28 weeks I would assume that your doctor has been doing an internal pelvic exam when you go to your visits. This is the best way to tell if the head has dropped. This is what they refer to as "stations". If your baby is at zero station, its head is high and you still have a small ways to go. A negative station means the baby is higher in utero, positive stations mean the head has dropped some.
