I think the baby was more sideways than that. Like completely on her side. So in that picture, you'd see a profile of the baby's face and the side of the baby's body She didn't say it was LOA, she said something about the way the baby was facing means she may turn posterior.

that is LOT then (left occiput transverse). it is ROA/ROT babies who are more likely to go posterior. your baby is just how it should be!

Head down according to my OB today. I am so relieved, I thought he was still transverse.... :

Ditto to all of it!

My LO has been head down since 20 weeks and just this morning decided to change it up. I have to admit, carrying her is MUCH more comfortable when she's breech. I wouldn't mind if she just hung out like this until a day or two before delivery!

32 weeks, LOA

DD1 was posterior and asynclitic and eventually a c/s birth so I was very concerned about positioning with dd2! Spinning Babies is good but the site isn't the easiest to navigate. Optimal Fetal Positioning doesn't have pictures but it's a lot easier to read. Both sites have the same basic information, along with exercises, positioning ideas, and birth stories.

The book The Labor Progress Handbook by Penny Simkin has lots of positioning information broken out by labor stage. So ideas for late pregnancy, then early labor, active labor, pushing, etc. It's a wonderful book and worth the price (oddly expensive for what is a relatively small paperback book). Especially if you had something go "wrong" in a previous birth... it was my go-to book with dd2 and this time round I actually bought a copy instead of using the library one.

I just went to the doctor and he's 95% sure the baby is head down with her back to my left side and feet up by my right ribs. I'm 34 weeks in a couple days so hopefully she stays like that...

I'll be 32 weeks on Sunday and he has been in the same position since last Sunday (exactly 31 weeks). His back is along my left side - I'm not sure whether he's head down or head up, but I *think* he's head down. I feel all movement in my cervix, bladder, right side, and right ribs. He likes to stretch a lot! And he's quite punchy

Of course, it doesn't really matter HOW he's positioned since I'm destined to have another c-section

At this point in time I have no idea! I am getting a ton of jabs straight in the front so I have a feeling that this little one is not in the perfect position. I go in for my 32 week appt. today so hopefully I will find out!

My little guy has been head down since... for a long time. lol I don't know when he turned, but he's been staying head down thankfully. I'm hoping at this point he'll be staying head down (33 weeks). Do they usually reach a point where they stay in the position that they're in? Or can they turn all the way up to delivery? I hope I'm not asking a repetitive question.

Mostly head down for us right now. He still flips a few times every now and agian. When I swim he gets all sideways and flips lol. I can only guess its from all the water pressure or weightlessness on my part ? I dont know but its really funny feeling when I am swimming along and bam someone is stretched out sideways and feels like he is doggy paddling in there.

We're head down again! Though baby's preferred side changes daily. For right now it is the right, though this could change again before dinner! Just as long as we stay head down, I'm ! If we go breech, I risk out of my mw's care. (fingers crossed!)

We moved! YEAH! I would insert some smilies here but I am to lazy to do full reply!

Babe was transverse and not really moving positions at all. I was having tons of low back pain. Went to a chiro who specializes in webster and newborn care starting three weeks ago and back pain is gone, and baby flips his back and legs to each side and moves much more and his now HEAD DOWN!!!!!

Phew...I didn't like going into the third trimester transverse. Made me nervous even thought I knew we had time!

head down, facing towards my right side. :P I always have back labor and then my babies always come out facing one of my legs... meh

Think I posted a week ago.. but wanted to update.

LO was in sitting breech position... but I am now realizing that there is alot of kicking - has to be legs it is sooo strong all around and above me belly and that over the weekend there were finally really noticeably hiccups rocking in my pelvis so I think she got her head down.... my worry now is it feels like she is still playing with transverse... she is always onteh move... lastnight pushing on me really hard diaogonally

I saw Dr. Berlin. http://www.doctorberlin.com/

My midwives confirmed today. Yeah! They were very impressed which I thought was funny because he is on their list of recommended labor preparation.

I was planning on seeing him anyway because he has a good reputation for helping with positioning and my first was postier. I want a nice, easy birth this time around.

They also have someone who does accupressure late in the last trimester. Supposed to help you dialate a bit before labor/ soften cervix.

what a coincidence, I have a friend who knows dr. berlin from when he was in atlanta! I just heard of him recently from her now I see his name a lot... lol

glad that he could help you!

He's head down with his back to the right - I know this cause' he'll occasionally just push out REALLY hard. And thats what the midwife said today
post #59 of 61
Just found out yesterday that my lovely little baby boy is LOA! He's in a great position for go but I was warned by my mw that he could still switch. I'll take it for now, however. I'm 33 weeks tomorrow.

Don't stress. Baby has quite a bit more time to move down in right position -IMO.
All that movement is a sign of a healthy baby.
At 34 weeks, mine is head down but so active and poking unconfortable - I know the feeling! Babies move around till they really have no more room and there are ways to get baby head down later on...
Only way to really tell at end, for sure, is to get an ultrasound.
