...is so damn UNCOMFORTABLE.<br><br>
Emma did this, too. Just laid there transverse FOREVER. So I have this big ol head jammed into my side right under my ribs and it's just... plain... uncomfy. I keep trying to shift position so that he'll wiggle off somewhere else, but no luck.<br><br>
*SIGH* I think that my uterus makes transverse like extra-comfy for a baby. I'm not worried about it because Em was transverse for months and then went head-down right when she was supposed to. But I wish he wouldn't DO that. It's so much pressure on my already stretched out belly skin.<br><br>
Of course, when he's head-down I have to pee every five seconds. When he's breech I get heartburn.<br><br><br><br>
I can't win.<br><br><br><br><br>
/end pregnancy whining of the day<br><br><br>
In other news, I'm happy that I'm so lucky to be pregnant and I should cherish this.

my baby is transverse most of the time too.. same issues.. stretched out achy feeling if she is transverse, have to pee all the time when she is head down or breech, i'm not sure.. doesn't seem to impact my heartburn..<br><br>
my DS was breech/transverse until 35 weeks.. at that point it was way more uncomfortable for me for him to be head down because of the pressure on my cervix and he was lower in my pelvis.. can't win really..

Sympathy hugs! My baby isn't transverse, but is head down way over on my right side, which is also where my placenta is, and I just feel my belly stretched way out on that side, and stabbing ligaments pains all the time... I hope baby finds a position that is comfy for both of you!

Hmm. I think my kiddo is head up or head down, because my sides are fine but my bladder is not. Transverse would be welcome right about now.

Yep, Im there too. This week my sides ache so much when Im up moving around, even though baby isnt really stretching out, just doing the transverse lie. If he/she were to stretch, I might just pass out!<br><br>
My theory is that because I have nice wide hips, it makes a nice little hammock in there if he lays transverse. Im honestly kind of happy he's not head down, with DD2 she went head down at 23 weeks and was pretty well engaged against my cervix which started some early shortening, and tons of pressure.<br><br>
Hope you get some relief soon!

Hmm. May be something to that-- I've got very wide hips (I've always had lots of hip, but I think that my last pregnancy did something to my bones to make them even more so).<br><br>
But yeah, something about my body shape apparently makes babies want to lay that way in me.
