Hi Mamas,<br><br>
I'm 20 weeks pregnant and I think the baby has completely changed her position <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> My stomach is a completley different shape today! She was in a breech position as of last week (had a level 2 ultrasound due to her heart having a slight defect- however, it doesn't look like it's a big probelm- knock on wood). Anyway, I woke up today and looked down at my tummy and it looks a lot higher and spread out sideways instead of a little basketball like it was before. (I'm very thin so my pregnant tummy always sticks out) I have also had cramping all day long and sharp pains on the sides (from stretching I'm guessing). I think the little sweetheart decided she's rather lay sideways <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

she's all happy in the enormous amount of space she's got in your tummy, sounds like. she'll do a few more summersaults and flips and turns before she settles into her final position (hopefully head down...). so enjoy the tummy show. i always love watching my tummy move <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> gee, i'll miss it!

Yep, beg she decided to try a "new" position. Isn't it the wildest thing to see your tummy move and know it's not you causing it. Especially when that elbow decides to move from one side to the other...<br><br>

My baby was sideways from about 20 weeks all the way up to 36w4d. Then he turned down and was born normally three days later (37w0d). I was starting to get nervous about a c-section those last couple weeks but it all turned out fine. It was actually much more comfortable carrying him sideways than it was once he turned down.
