Had been feeling very pleased+lucky that all was going v well after my previous two mw appointments (at 28 weeks and 31 weeks) where I was told baby was head down and had moved into my pelvis, but now feel like a rug has been pulled out from under me after my check up yesterday sad

MW wasn't 100% sure what position baby is in but reassured me there is plenty of time for baby to flip again . She told me to just wait till my next aptmt in 2 weeks to see if baby has moved, but I suddenly feel v worried that this is unlikely and am getting stressed at the thought of ecv/ c section.

Has anybody got experience of babies moving this late and any success stories with the inversion exercises?

Would love some reassurance!

I was told the same at 36 weeks; my (fab and very experienced) midwife was reasonably sure baby was breech. She suggested spending 15 minutes on hands and knees as much as possible. A few days later I had some very weird movements and then a scan at 37 weeks showed he was head down.

He was born at 39+6, a very straightforward water birth smile

That's brilliant strawberrie...exactly what I needed to hear!
Getting down on my hands and knees plenty so fingers crossed it will do the trick.
