<p>I know it really doesn't matter ( right now) and it changes but hows you little one like to hang out usually?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>This one goes between transverse and head down. Transvers makes me a bit queasy, and it's really werid for me both my boys were head down kinda guys... always.  when ever they were checked thats how they were sitting.</p>

I have no clue. This babe has been sitting right up against my spine for a couple weeks now, so I can't tell what end is up and what is down! <img alt="lol.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/lol.gif"> (But I guess I know that it's not transverse, which is lying sideways, right?)

<p>head down, and has been since my US 5.5 weeks ago. DD was breach at this point, though she turned right at 30 weeks. </p>

<p>I had a follow up US at 27+ weeks and the tech said he/she was breach, and how it was uber unusual and that it should be head down by now.  I had a mild freak out until I got online and saw that it was pretty common.  I think baby might be head down now because the forceful kicks on the inside of cervix area (such a weird feeling!) are less intense, while the stronger kicks/punches are at the top.</p>

<p>Somewhere between tranverse and head down...I think the midwife referred to it as oblique. Her head is kinda faced toward my left hip, and her butt is up high on the right side. Or at least that's how she was sitting at my last appointment a couple days ago.</p>

<p>My midwife palpated at yesterday's appointment.  For now, it looks like he is head down and base on location of the heartbeat, he is LOA.  I'm just hoping that he stays that way.</p>

<p>I've got one breech and one transverse.  The transverse babe likes to move down sometimes and I think is head down when s/he does that, but s/he is frequently transverse.  I think after the holidays I'm going to work on spending more time with the birth ball, but for now I'm not concerned. </p>

<p>I have no idea! I feel most of the kicking pretty low, or maybe that's punching...?  ;)</p>

I wish I could figure this out... now I'm wondering if baby is transverse, because I'm feeling low kicks/punches on both sides of my abdomen- nothing up high today. But when I try to feel around, I hardly ever feel the baby. Must have a lot of cushion in there! <img alt="lol.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/lol.gif">

<br><br><p>Exactly this for the most part here. Her head is usually near my left hip, sometimes directly down in my pelvis; and her feet are stretched up by right ribs if I'm sitting. I'm pretty sure she's posterior most of the time. After dtd or some bh, she curls up on my left side <span><img alt="orngbiggrin.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif"></span></p>

<p>Mine has been head down/transverse, with butt on left side near top mostly. I feel like she moved the other day though and not really sure now. Seems like I felt hiccups down low the other day but now feels like maybe kicks down there. Could jus be head/hand movement though.</p>

<p>Now I've got A head down and B, I'm almost certain is breech.  Much better combination, and I'd be perfectly content if they stay this way, but B can turn head down, too if s/he wants.</p>

<p>This baby seems to move all around still.It's goes tranverse to  breach to head down. Not sure when it will slow down and stay in one spot.  </p>

<p>Wow you ladies amaze me how you can tell- after my last appointment i guess he is head down with butt on my right side...kind of makes sense with the description of movement I'm feeling, but I just can't believe how you can tell...I guess I'm just not that aware of what means what. </p>

<p>During our 20 wk ultrasound babe was head down, actually the head was wedged by my left hip.  I have a feeling there's a lot of moving around happening though as I feel kicks on my left side, next day on my right side, and then low around my cervix.  Guess there's still plenty of swimming room left!</p>

<p>He was breach at the 20 wk ultrasound.  I think a few weeks after that started moving around and switching a bit more cause the hard kicks would be low for a couple days, then high for a couple days etc...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Now I think he seems to have (hopefully) settled on mostly head down.  This is based mostly on the strongest kicks/movement.  At night though or laying down I think he goes a bit more transverse and I feel kicks on the sides more.</p>

<p>she was feet down at our 20 week ultrasound, but for the past few weeks i've been feeling tons of kicks high in my ribs and lots of pressure down low.. so i assumed she had flipped around. now i'm feeling less pressure down there and kicks/punches near my belly button and low in my pelvis so who knows what this kid is doing lol. im following some of the guidelines on spinning babies to encourage her to get into a good position, but she seems pretty content with doing whatever she wants. i have no doubt that she'll turn and get comfy/ready for birthing when she's ready, but boy do i prefer the higher kicks to the low pelvis ones. those hurt! and feel weird too!</p>

<p>Baby is ROT. I feel kicking on my right side, from the middle of my side up to my ribs. I also feel hiccups just below my belly button. And I'm starting to feel some occasional punches down low, too.</p>

<p>Midwife confirmed a head in my pelvis yesterday, so A is head down and hopefully will stay.  Baby B really likes to move a lot.  I noticed I seem to prefer sleeping on my right side more, and I think Baby B just doesn't like being laid on, so even when s/he goes vertex s/he doesn't stay very long.  </p>

<p>My baby decided that it would be fun to be transverse with his/feet on the left and kick close to my kidney :( All I can say is that side is already sensitive from the pain of the kidney stones that baby position is not ok. Turn baby, turn!!!</p>
