I think this boy is FINALLY head-down! I'm pretty sure he was transverse up until a few days ago. The day before yesterday I felt a LOT of rolling and stretching, and last night I think I felt his head down low. I've been doing a lot of exercises from spinning babies to encourage pelvic balance and a good position since DD was all over the place and never did get into a position where she could descend. They weren't able to tell me if she was posterior or a brow presentation or what, but she had huge red gashes on both sides of her forehead so she was definitely caught against bone. I've been doing forward inversions off the couch and lots of pelvic tilts as a preventative measure. I hope he stays put! Come on, VBAC!

How are your babes doing, position-wise? Are you doing anything to encourage them to get settled, or am I just paranoid since my last birth was such a train wreck?

I have no idea how this little girl is positioned. I can tell which side she is on but that is about it. I know with my first he didn't move head down for good until 35 weeks or something like that. I think I am going to ask at my doctors appointment if they can tell how she is positioned.

I think my baby is still moving around a lot. For about a week I think she was head down because I could feel a lot of kicks up high, but then yesterday I felt the kicks really low and on my cervix, so I think she turned.

Lil man has been transverse up until Sunday. I felt a real heavy drop which was apparently him moving head down. I am hoping he stays put as well as he hasn't moved out of transverse before. Fingers crossed that he stays put! And Fingers crossed your lil guy stays put as well!

My babe is head down, not that it matters too much in my case! Glad that Henry is head down. Stay put baby. Hopefully he hurries and fattens up so he gets stuck that way lol

I really have no clue. I'm still feeling kicks all over the place, so I don't know. I thought I felt a couple rib kicks the other day, but I can't be sure. I'll be asking at my dr. appt tomorrow.

Not head down here yet. At least not as of my appt on Friday. My midwife said if she's not head down by 32 weeks, she will give me the exercises to do to flip her. I trust her completely, so I probably won't worry until later on.

Midwife says that the baby is oblique but was not able to determine which end was which. I'm guessing that this baby is following the same pattern as my son. I'm convinced that the part hitting my ribs is the butt.

This means the baby will stay oblique until pretty close to the end. Not a biggie.

Glad he's head-down Go VBAC!!

I don't think mine has a home position yet but I spose it doesn't really matter in my case bc of the automatic c/s. I'm still curious though.
