At my last appointment my midwife confirmed that my baby's head is down and that he/she is oblique with their butt right in my ribs. With Alex this was how he sat pretty much all the way until the end and only straightening out at around 38/39 weeks.

On Monday I woke up and felt normal. Then I felt a lot of pressure in my sides and on my stomach. All day I had a rough time taking deep breaths and needed to sit down a lot and even talking got rough. I became VERY worried and wondered if I should go to the doctor's.

Then at break time I was sitting reclined in my car when I decided to feel where the baby way. I couldn't feel the butt in my ribs at all so I made sure to poke kinda hard to be sure. And, yup! Sure enough that little toosh was no where near my right side ribs but straight in the middle of my torso. As I felt along my stomach the baby began to stretch and kick out a bit and my breathing became more restricted.

This LO is pressing on my lungs! Then yesterday I had to pee literally every 15-30 minutes. When I got home from work I felt along my belly again and could feel the hard back of my baby's head sitting lower than it was on Monday. So now my kid is straightened out and sitting low!

I don't think I'm going to make it to my due date :S

Alek was oblique until last week (same position as your baby with butt to the right) and finally moved more head down. His butt still moves a bit from side to side but its definitely A LOT harder to breathe then it was when he was more sideways!

Bodhi is Oblique - head in my left hip and butt in my right ribs. He has been fond of playing with his feet lately, so he is all in one big ball of baby a lot.
