What position is your baby in now? - Page 3

post #41 of 65

Baby was breech at 19wk u/s, but at today's cervical check baby had flipped, was still breech 2 days ago so very excited!  I am 23 1/2 wks.  My son went head down at this time last preg and stayed that way, so this one might to.  Before now this baby was flipping around a ton and was transverse for a bit.  My mw say they can;t confirm position till 28 wks by touch.

At 19 weeks the babe was breech, but is now head down and will probably stay that way (24w 2d).

Curious. How can you be confident that baby will stay head down at only 24w? That seems really early to me but I don't know. I never worried about or paid attention to that sort of thing before. I only know from friends whose babies were breech until very late so that they were getting worried but baby turned at the last minute.

Our baby is breech at 25 weeks and we are hoping that he/she turns head down in the next 10 weeks.  The baby's butt is abouve my belly button, it stricks out at least once daily that I can see. 

I'll get another u/s in May so I'll let you all know where we are at then,

I am constantly trying to feel the position of my babe. I think I can tell when he's transverse vs. vertical (what's that called?) but I can't tell butt from head. I can feel parts in my upper belly but can't feel anything distinctive lower just above my pelvic bone, if that makes any sense.

Last night he was vertical and something pointy was sticking up above my belly button. Do you supposed that was his butt or a foot or heel as opposed to an elbow or hand?

Head down now here.

My baby is now flip-flopping between transverse and head down. He/she is moving a lot! Yesterday when the baby was transverse, I felt a distinct group of movements that I am sure was the baby trying to stretch out: I felt two legs kicking strongly on the far left side to the outside, and two arms moving on the far right side to the outside, like the baby was trying to make more room and stretch out flat horizontally. I guess he/she is getting crowded now.

Me either.  Sometimes he feels closer to the surface, like last night but at nearly 25 weeks, I still can't tell up from down.  My MW said it's pretty common till about 28-32 wks depending.

I'm 28 weeks and had an OB appt today. Baby is head down and hopefully will stay that way!

At my 28 wk. appt. last week baby was breech.  Totally unsure of baby's position on my own, but I'd venture that s/he goes back and forth between transverse and breech.  Sometimes the baby definitely feels transverse to me.  My 3rd baby was breech until 35 weeks, so I'm not too concerned.  And I'll push for a vaginal homebirth even if baby continues to remain breech.  If they chose to hospital transfer me (and they could for that, but it's not an automatic call, it's up to their discretion), I have no idea if the hospitals/dr's around here are open to attempting vaginal breech deliveries.  I sure hope so.

Head down,he gets hiccups all day these days and I can feel it down there. Also saw my midwife yesterday and she confirmed him being head down. My babies always end up head down from early on.

One of the nice things about being at a MTF (if that's where you would be) is that they can't refuse treatment. If you say you want a vag breech birth, they have to let you try. Now, whether or not you'd really want to do that if there's no one qualified to attend you is another story.

Last week I was convinced my baby was transverse...whenever I felt movement it would be at my sides, and I'd feel it on both sides simultaneously - as if baby is stretched out and wiggling hands and feet at the same time.

 

However, this week, when I feel movement, I feel it very high under my ribs and very low in my pelvis... indication that baby has turned to a vertical position?

29wks and still breech. Wish I had x-ray vision! I want to see what's going on in there. Feels like fun.

At my prenatal Wednesday baby was head down with his back running along my right side, just as I had guessed. I was 26w4d. He doesn't always stay that way. Sometimes I feel more kicking on my left side and can feel his back going across my belly, which makes me think he is transverse but he seems to hang out head down most of the time.

At 30 weeks baby is breech. My other children were breech until the last few weeks. This time it doesn't matter though because I have a planned c-section. Since she turned I feel less pressure on my bladder which is nice! Down side is when she stretches she goes into my rib and when she kicks she kicks my bladder. She likes to stretch her back out and I can see my belly grow when she does.

We think our baby is head down now... though if I had to guess, I'm thinking he/she is posterior - I feel most of the movements in my upper belly, just under my rib cage, but as all the movements seem to be felt on my front side, I have a feeling baby's back is toward my back. I still feel some *big* cartwheeling movements now and then, so I guess there's still time for baby to move all he/she wants!

post #58 of 65
I swear my baby had moved transverse again last night. I felt what seemed to be his back running along the upper part of my belly from side to side.

Baby was head down at 23 weeks, but now is transverse at 27 1/3 wks:(  Working on it!

I'm 27+2 now and mine is transverse a lot of the time too. I dont even know how it'd be comfortable but it'll be head right lower, back up, so legs and arms are facing down kicking me in the cervix and bum. But, 20 mins later I'll get a jolt up above my belly button so I think it's just still moving a lot. I've been reading up on the spinning babies website and although its hard not to, I'm trying not to be worried yet since it's still early. I'll worry more after 30 weeks I think. From what I've read there, just maintaining good posture, staying active, and doing some inversions can help. We'll see!! I'd be devastated if I had to have a Cesarean. If it ended up breech I'd just wait until I was about to deliver to show up at the hossy so they didn't have any other choice. Transverse... not so good... but also very rare. Crossing my fingers!
