My doctor has never mentioned her position before and I'll be 28 weeks the next time I see her... should this be something I start asking about?
It's likely that she will mention it to you if baby is in the correct position or not. She should be able to tell by feeling your belly and finding where the head bump and rear bump are, but I suppose not all practitioners are trained to do this. You could ask tho.
I've just been doing it myself, there is some info on the spinning babies site that explains what to feel for. It took a while for me to figure it out, and sometimes I can't really be sure of what I'm feeling. In my case all of the kicking is low so I was pretty sure I'd find the head up near the top. My other 2 babes were head down very early on and just stayed put, so this is new to me.
I like the spinning babies site because there are a couple of stretches or postures that are good for every woman, not just for babies who aren't in the right position.
