I've been so preoccupied lately with family matters that I've been neglecting my pregnancy a bit and it just dawned on me today that my midwife mentioned the baby was transverse last week, and perhaps that's something I should be concerned about. She gives me wretched kicking pains.. it seems very likely that she is indeed sideways. But anyways, has anyone else dealt with that, and at what point do you start addressing it or doing any manipulation techniques? I'm 30 wks.
I've heard it can be possibly due to a low-lying placenta, which I have (ultrasound in a few weeks to see if it's clear) or the mother sleeping in awkward positions, which I have the past month. Dh is recovering from heart surgery and needed our bed on a 45 degree incline for several weeks, so I'm often in a twisted side position or occasionally on my back (though upright, not flat). We're slowly lowering the bed.. maybe 15 degrees now. I hope I didn't screw things up by sleeping like that!
