Arg. Baby's been head down for weeks now, just turning from side to side... This morning, laying in bed I felt some crazy huge movements, and now I'm getting big kicks down low. greensad.gif When do I need to start worrying about getting baby back down?

This baby is jumping around A LOT.  I've been feeling a lot of strong kicks up high, but she's been rolling around a lot in the last couple days.  DS was breech until 38.5 weeks, so I'm hoping this baby settles in earlier!

My kiddo is hanging out transverse, at least was yesterday at the midwife appt.  Head on my right side, feet on the left.  I guess in a couple of weeks I'll start to worry about getting him/her to move head down, before there's no room left!  I'm thinking I should work on my posture too, I'm a big-time sloucher and I'm wondering if this is not giving the baby enough vertical room to be comfy that way...

Things can change a lot in almost 3 weeks.

 

My hip pain, which the chiro said was the S-I Joint, is almost completely gone.  

 

The midwife identified the baby's position in about a second, even though I felt like I had no idea.  Her head is down.  

 

About 10 days ago, I was in the supermarket and one of the staff there pointed out that the baby had dropped.  At that time, she was super low.  I could feel her deep in my pelvis and it was achy and I was walking awkwardly.  I replied to the lady that probably in a few hours she would pick a new position.  She did.  She hasn't been back down that low since.

Had midwife appt yesterday.  Babe is still LOA and I hope he stays that way. 

 

There are times he will stretch and I can feel his little head pressing above my left hip and oooh it is uncomfortable.  Not really pain, but definitely not something I want to feel a lot.

At our MW appt yesterday baby was head down - I don't know how they can tell!  It all feels the same to me!  I suppose they get a lot more practice though.wink1.gif What I thought was a head under the right side of my ribcage is apparently a bum.  Baby kept flipping from side to side when they were trying to find the heartbeat with the fetoscope - we'll definitely have a little troublemaker on our hands. orngbiggrin.gif  I'm going to have to poke at my belly some more and see if I can figure out what I'm feeling.

I'm pretty sure my Alistair is head down at this point.  When I gently depress around the top of my fundus, I feel some pelvic pressure, which is slightly uncomfy, but I know it's just baby.  If I press lower down where the head is, there's no other movement anywhere else in the uterus.  Unless he decides to kick or poke back at me.  I still think he's trying to decide on if he's going to want to try to face my tummy or my butt for delivery (but my doctor will turn him if he decides to face my belly for better and easier delivery), because some days my belly is a little more squishy (belly side to my belly), and other days it's more solid (back side to my belly - which is where I want him!).

 

This morning, he was belly to belly.  I tried this morning to get a video of him poking and prodding back - but as soon as I had the camera in place (when he finally decided to poke enough to show something) - he was done, and fell asleep again.  Go figure.  He's his father's child.  lol
