Now that i think about it this has been the same with all 4 previous pregnancies; however, this one is the most obvious. Baby likes to ONLY lie on the right side of my uterus!!??? I mean NEVER on the left. Baby (surprise, so no he/she) sersly balls up and lays in this big mound on my right side. Pushing, like he's gonna come right through my right side. It's more pressure and uncomfortable than painful, but I don't get why baby does this? Is just more comfy on that side? When I lay down it's very apparent that he's lying on my right side (always). We've had a u/s and baby and placenta looks perfect. It's just strange, ya know? Anyone else have favorite side that baby favors or am I only strange?

Mine too, and my first did that also, only time I ever found him LOA was at 40 weeks then he flipped right back over before labor. I had an OB tell me with him than it's noisy on the left side from digestion and maybe he didn't like it there, no clue if there was anything to that. The ROA position made for a long early labor with my first but doulas tell me in multiparas it's not usually as big a problem.

my DD was mostly on the left. i was seriously uncomfortable, but it was better than the heel in the rib for 4 months with DS.

Dd hung out on the right the entire time. I looked pretty strange with a baby bump at an angle

I don't come here anymore. MDC has become overgrown with ads & useless extra forums.

My last baby liked the right side and this one seems to love it too. Never thought about that before!
