Baby 35 weeks lying Oblique

Hi,
I had a growth scan bang on 35 weeks - all ok but she said the baby is lying oblique. this basically means the babies head is down but pointing towards by hips (sticking in my bladder actually) rather than towards my pelvis. If you imagine pelvis/engaged as 6pm on a clock my baby is lying at 7-8pm on the clock!

Anyway I am struggling to find much info on this as to what it actually means? She did say they would just recheck later but didn't say anything about another scan as baby growth is fine.

Has anyone else had this and had a C-section or had a normal birth?

I am not bothered either way just whatever is best for baby. This is my second baby/pregnancy btw.

I'm pretty sure my DD was transverse the majority of the time then when oblique.

At 35 weeks they still have plenty of time to turn and put the head squeeze it should be.

I spent my last few weeks constantly on my ball or sitting on a chat backwards and doing lots of walking and striding sideways up the stairs while squatting!

I hope baby turns for you!

Oh and yes I had a normal birth.

Both my dd2 and current baby have been oblique at 35w. Feels like it's trying to push out of my hip some days! Dd2 realigned by 37w

Are u still oblique? I'm feeling differ rent movements so maybe the baby has moved a little
