Basically I have felt for a couple of weeks now baby is not laying head down, feels to me that he/she is laying either diagonally or right across my bump.
I asked my midwife at yesterdays apt who think the baby is laying head down, back curving up my right side, bum under left ribs and limbs on lower left side .. however, I never ever feel any movement on my left side, its always on my right side high and low and smack bang in the middle of my bump above my belly button.
I explained this to MW who said she couldnt be sure baby is laying head down and now Id mentioned this to her she will refer me for a scan in 2 weeks time if she still cant be sure enough from palpating her words were mums tend to know best about these things and this being your third, I expect you know how it feels
What would you do ? Would you follow your midwives thoughts on the positioning or go for the scan just to be on the safe side ? I dont want to waste anyones time but Im just not convinced baby is in the right position and tbh, neither was the midwife. Am 35+4 btw
I know she's the professional and I've never ever questioned my midwives judgement in any of my pregnancies but this time something just doesn't seem right ...... and I seriously don't want to be going into labour naturally with an undiagnosed breech baby.
Fingers crossed your baby turns if you decide to go for the VBAC
Get checke dout at an ante-natal clinic? My hospital runs them alongside community midwife service. I went to hopspital at 38 weeks because my baby wasn't moving as usual and they then discovered an undiagnosed transverse lie.
Trust your instinct, definitely. I did with my baby not moving and it was the saving of us both (not because of breech btw).
