am 37 weeks too and have no idea where baby is, although feels last couple of days like he's grinding down into my pelvis Still moving loads and its very painful at times. Could you ask for a scan if MW is unsure of position, I imagine its pretty important that they know how its lying at this stage as is more unlikely to move round and you would probably be offered a CS for transverse or breech baby
Hi Mosschops, thanks for your response. Had a scan last week and the baby was head down then, but I'm sure it's all changed again since then. Perhaps I'll give her a call and ask to be seen again this week... I'm just not sure whether I'm being neurotic or not.
I'm 37+3 and my baby is transverse atm. I'm having an elcs on monday and they wanted to admit me from 37 weeks for unstable lie, which I declined. I would get it checked out, they have told me to get to hospital quick at any sniff of contractions or labour and to call 999 straight away if waters break due to cord prolapse risk.
My baby too has been classed as unstable lie...one minute baby is transverse, then oblique then head down. To go with the position of my baby i also have a low lying pacenta so will almost def be having a CS (which is absolutely what i want right now to reduce any risks).
I find it very uncomfortable and almost feel bad that my baby can't seem to get comfey - especially when i go to bed and feel like i'm lying on his head or legs etc. My baby doesn't stop stretching and moving for a minute of every day all the time i'm out of bed and although the midwives say thats a sign of a happy baby i can't help thinking it's actually because he's really uncomfortabe???
buttercup - chances are, you may end up with a CS but will not know until you go into labour, as where your baby is moving all the time they will just have to check his position at that time!! I hope that doesn't scare you if you really don't want a CS but there is no way we can give birth to a babies back if he is transverse!! I'm sure tings will be fine and try not to worry about being 'neurotic' ( as you're not at all), just make sure you go straight to the hospital when you go into labour or if waters break and make sure they are aware you're baby may be tansverse when you call to let them know you're on you're way so they don't tell you to wait until your contractions get stronger!! (that's the advice i have been given so i hope that helps) Good luck to all!! xxx
