Hi my baby is transverse and was like that pretty much always. She is also measuring 2 weeks ahead. I am meeting consultant this wednesday. Would they do anything at this point or still early? I am not going to have the baby manually moved and happy to go with section. Anyone knows, had same experience?
Hi there, my DD was transverse from 33 ish weeks all the way through til when she was delivered at 39+4. At my hospital they didn't manually turn transverse babies, only breech ones so that was that. Have they said if you will have to be admitted to hospital for observation at 38 weeks? They sprung this on me at 37 weeks, which was a bit of a blow as no one had mentioned it until that point. So basically I lived at the hospital for a week and a half waiting for my section date. Good luck!
Oh wow, I am not ready for hospital stay. Gp just confirmed today that she is transverse but I knew it already. My consultant appointment is on wednesday. Did they scan you to see why the baby transverse?
I know that some LAs don't admit at 38 weeks. I was with St Thomas' London. They scanned to confirm she was transverse, at 37 weeks and every day when I was on the antenatal ward but they never offered an explanation of why she was in that position. It was only revealed at birth that the she was completely tangled up in the very long umbilical cord, which may or may not have been the reason.
Hey babynelly, hope it all goes ok with your appointment tomorrow! I'm in a similar position but a week or so behind you (35 weeks today). Baby has been transverse for the last month to the surprise of my doctor who said it's quite unusual for a first baby!
I wondered if you know which way up baby is? Mine is footling i.e. back up and feet/hands hanging down towards the cervix. My doctor says there is a risk of cord prolapse in this position if my waters break early so if he doesn't move, they will want to do an early c-section before 38 weeks (I am abroad so possibly different policy to NHS). I'm guessing if this is the case, they're more likely to admit you early?
