Well I'm sorry I don't have any advice since this is my first time; but I think you still have time. Don't you?

|The Fetal Lie|
This term refers to the position of the baby's spine relative to the mother's. For a "normal" fetal lie, the baby's spine must be in the same direction as the mother's. This is also called a "cephalic" lie. If it is at an angle to the mother's spine, it is said to have an "oblique lie." If it is completely transverse to the mother's spine (90 degree angle), it is said to have a "transverse lie."
The main danger that a transverse or oblique lie presents is the fact that there is nothing blocking the birth canal when the mother's water breaks. If it does, there is a danger that the umbilical cord can exit the birth canal, depriving the baby of blood and oxygen, potentially causing organ, tissue, or brain damage. This occurrence is known as cord prolapse. It is especially likely with a transverse lie.
A transverse or oblique lie occurs in approximately 1 in 300 births. Odds are increased if the birth is premature.
