Yeah, I have a stoopid Q, so no laughing!!

Can the baby get stuck anywhere?? Only asking cos this morning when I woke up on my side, the movements were odd, I could tell baby's head was on the right side of my bump and feet/butt on the left, meaning it was lying across instead of up/down. And I had to get up cos I felt like it was telling me I was squishing it by laying on my side (laying on my back is too uncomfy).

all day since, the movements have been above my right hip. I can't feel any distinguishing parts that would indicate how it's lying now. But I haven;t had any big kicks today, just this funny moevemt above my hip. Is he/she stuck?!

I'm not an expert, but I think that the baby can get stuck. 1: they can get stuck horizontal instead of vertical and 2: they can get at least one leg caught in the pubic bone.

If you're uncomfortable, I think that some exercises can help encourage baby to move like squats, side bends, or bending over from the waist. Won't hurt to try!

I assume sometimes they can get caught in a position until they figure out how to wiggle out of it. If you can feel him/her, then you can try pressing him/her gently until he/she moves. But if he/she doesn't want to move, then don't force it. Just make sure that you're feeling the movements consistently even if they're not as strong.

Yesterday, mine was definitely lying across and she kept thumping very far into my side. I even joked that I think she was trying to move into my back but today she seems back to her regular position.

Thank you Helen for my beautiful siggy!

I feel better knowing your gorgeous girl was laying across too. I wasn't sure if they would be too big to lay that way now! I guess not!!

Later in pregnancy baby probably won't be able to do a ton of flips in there and movement will be more limited, but I would say that right now it would be pretty hard for baby to get truly stuck. At 28 weeks there is still plenty of room to move around in there and I would say that as long as you're feeling movement, don't sweat it. Baby has restful and active periods and days just like us!

Lily was traverse breech (laying across) until I was 38 weeks pregnant. Then she was in a weird jack-knife position right up until I went into labor at which point she went head down and out!

They really don't get stuck in one place--they do move around till right at the end. If you are uncomfortable doing some exercises will help baby move. Get on your hands and knees and bend your back really good then arch your back really good---that should help! And like always do your squats, or sit on a footstep thats lower--to open those hips up (this helps with labor and baby position!)
