On the baby spinning website it says that transverse babies are less likely to turn the later you progress in to pregancy as the uterus gets shaped for a transverse lie (or something like that). I'm 33 weeks and my baby is still transverse... what are the chances of her turning?
butterball and cakeywakey.. were your babies movers before they turned? DD hasn't moved since 25 weeks or thereabouts. DS was the same, as soon as I could feel where he was he didn't shift the entire time. I just wondered if some babies just get themselves comfy and don't move much. All the MWs I've seen don't seem very optimistic that she'll turn.
My DD was a proper mover, especially when there were loud noises going on. She really didn't like me going to the cinema
She was only 7lbs though and I'm not exactly dainty, so I think there was room for her to shift about. My MW thought that at 37 weeks she still felt transverse, but at a scan in wk 38 she was head down and ready to go (and appeared the next day).
My DS2 wasn't much of a mover in a turning about kind of way (he was big on kicking and punching though!) He was breech for a long time then decided he had the energy to turn sideways one day. I'm only 4ft 11in and DS was 8lb 6oz at exactly 36 weeks so there must have been <...> this much room to maneuver but he managed it.
Thanks! DD is not much of a kicker but is really wriggly. I think she's done a 180 degree move, she was battering the hell out of my left ovary for about four weeks, but now I'm getting lots of movement the otherside that feels like feet. Maybe that means she will turn another 90 degrees to head down. I'm booked for a scan at 36 weeks to see what she's up to.
