Was about 4" below my bra this morning!!! Round, hard, and wouldn't move...just as the books describe. Not to mention how uncomfortable my belly felt.<br><br>
This LO was starting to move to the head-down position, now s/he is back up!!! I have a flipper.<br><br>
So I went swimming for about 45 minutes to loosen up my joints and such. Now I'm sitting on my birth ball. DH says I'm too worried. Do you think I am the one causing this? I wish I could just forget about it (especially since I'm only 28 weeks) but I can't.<br><br>
I've tried things I've seen on spinningbabies as well as other things from the internet. I just wish s/he would turn head down and stay there so I wouldn't have to think about it anymore!

My kid has his head up and then down and then hidden somewhere in the back at various times during the day... I remember Dylan doing the same thing up until the last couple weeks when he didn't have any room to move, and then he went head down to wait. I wouldn't fret at this point. Baby knows which way she's supposed to go. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Oh yeah, no worrying allowed yet <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> DD didn't get in to position until I was in the mid to late 30's. I can never tell what the heck this baby is doing.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Mine is flip flopping too. Today she is head down, but for the last 3 days she's been all over the place. I doubt if she'll be head down tomorrow. No worrying allowed yet! I agree. Especially since it's not your first. This one just has more room to move around.

I just want to get her head down and then squat for awhile to keep her there...stuck. Haha.<br><br>
I guess it is just something to think/worry about. Off to meditate. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

If I remember right, my last son had a head up under my ribs until his birth. I always had to sit leaning over <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
At that time I didn't pay attention to his positioning or worry about breech at all. Now I worry because I am protecting a homebirth and not wanting my mother to have the right to say "I told you so."<br><br>
Anywhoo, he obviously flipped at some point last minute. I COULD be wrong and it was a butt, however, I really think it was his big head.

This one's head (I think that's what it is- round and hard) mostly stays pooched out a little to the left of my navel most of the time. S/he squirms constantly these days though and I'm still getting some hellish kicks to the bladder and cervix. I'm 29/30 weeks depending on who you ask, so I'm not really worried about the baby being fixed in one position just yet, especially since I'm likely to go past my EDD anyway (MW says there's a VERY good chance I'll go to at least 41 weeks since that's how far I was when Pixie was born.)<br><br>
I just figure if I hit 38 weeks and s/he's breech, I'll spend that week running around for acupuncture, standing on my head, doing external versions, getting hypnotized or whatever it takes to flip the right way!!! Until then, I'm not stressing about that... I refuse!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>

baby B keeps flipping - I can literally see the head bulge out my side while he figures out what to do. No comfortable at all. Last time it happened I went on all 4's and did pelvic rocking. That seemed to help with the pain.

OMG this one's head is always jammed right under my ribs. Swimming helps move him down though. He's transverse right now so my midwife says "he's on his way down"... but honestly, he's been kind of like this the whole time. DH says he's like his dad, he likes to stretch out... there's more room this way! Sure, but it's uncomfortable for mama!<br><br>
Not to worry, there's plenty of time. I asked my m/w the same question yesterday. She's not worried so neither am I.

I *think* mine went head down this week.. the earlier you start webster Breech treatments witha chiro teh better the chance of babe flipping.. it can be done at any point but the earlier the better (I go 1x per week for that plus accupuncture and exercises etc) it is too early to worry but not too early to get pelvic balancing done... hope that helps
