I just had a quick question to all you birth experts out there. I am 4 days past my due date and I had a prenatal yesterday. It turns out that the baby who was head down in the pelvis has moved her head of to the side a little and is a little transverse now. My midwife was able to gently prod her head over so I know she can be head down but as soon as she let go the baby moved back over a little bit. I know that two nights ago she was moving around a lot and from looking at my belly it seemed like she was trying to turn but couldn't. Also I had my first internal and I am 3 centimeters dilated, about 30% effaced, and my cervix is soft. After the internal my midwife commented on how the front of my pelvis was a little flat but because I've had a previous vaginal birth she wasn't to worried about it. She said that labor was probably a few days off and that I needed to do some hands and knees positions and walk around. She had a worried face and I asked her to tell me what was worrying her, and she said it was the position of the baby. I feel like she isn't telling me everything, but I need to know, if there is anything you guys think she is holding back?
