I am experiencing the same thing with an anterior placenta. I thought mine was anterior fundal, but it's just plan anterior. The "void" is so weird!
As of my OB appointment Monday, he was head down. We found his heartbeat on the right side about even with my belly button. We peeked with the dinky u/s and couldn't tell which part of his head was down, and we saw *something* next to/behind it. Like an elbow?? None of the placement of the parts was making much sense, and he is still moving SO much that we decided to go ahead with the more detailed u/s at the MFM tomorow. I definitely have feet in my ribs, but he is NOT vertex 99% of the time, and I feel something significant in my left hip to the point that it hurt to lie on my left side last night. Who knows! The likelihood of needing a version at this point is low, but we will be able to at least identify or rule out other malpositioning issues. I have a sneaking suspicion that it's the BACK of his head by my cervix. And that he's 110% posterior. But we shall see.
Carrie--my DH is much like yours in that work takes precedence. Like today I called him twice and have yet to get a call back! He's not coming to my u/s tomorrow, but I think I am okay with that. Don't get me wrong--I would love for him to be there in case I get news I don't want, but at the same time, if I have to trade, I'll take that one. I guess
mkp--any updates from you? You're a week closer than I am and having action (I don't think I've had a single contrax yet), so you've been on my mind!! I do have to say that while no one wants a c/s, having made the decision to have one with DD2, it wasn't nearly as bad as I expected. No, it's not the same as a non-interventive vaginal birth. But it can be a positive experience--mine was quite healing, actually. It's easier to get to the point of accepting it and making the best of it when you know that it's inevitable AND the best choice at that moment for your baby. Then you can plan how it's going to go and make it a good birth for everyone. I hope that makes sense. I was terrified and refused to accept that a c/s may be the best course of action for us. But in the end it turned out to be a much more positive experience than I ever could have anticipated--and my recovery was better than my vaginal birth!
