At my 28 week appointment the other day, my midwife said the baby was head down already. She said I wouldn’t have to worry if the baby wasn’t, as it is still a bit early. Don’t worry too much about it just yet!

eocenia: Well I figured that without giving the ECV a shot I had 0% chance of having a vaginal delivery whereas the ECV gave me at least a 50% chance of avoiding the c-section. And it really is a relatively low risk procedure with only 0.5% of ECV’s resulting in an emergency c-section.

eocenia: I’ve already replied to this– but I had an ultrasound today for this baby. He was head down- and had no intention of of moving. We were trying to make him move because she needed particular pictures, but had to turn to a vaginal ultrasound instead. I don’t know if he’s going to stay this way– but the sonographer said that head down- up- sideways, nothing would be out of the ordinary at this stage (I’m 24+3– which I know is earlier than you when you asked this question!)

Our little girl turned at 29w1d. I remember the day because I was laying down on my left side and felt the most strongest strangest feeling ever … it wasn’t exactly painful but it was uncomfortable and so sharp and sudden. I yelled “don’t do that again!” my husband ran in “don’t yell at her!” haha it was hilarious. At the following appt dr confirmed she was head down, just left my 34w appt and she’s still head down so I think she’s there to stay until her birthday 🙂

Thanks you all for your replies so far. We went to the midwife again yesterday and baby is still head up – so now we’re starting project “get baby to turn”. First cause of action, swim around in circles in the pool. I’m also going to start to try to bend forward a lot, like sweeping the stairs and so, to let gravity do its best to help baby flip.
xdaydreams05x: Interesting to hear that your little one flipped when you were laying down, I kind of assumed that it would only happen if I was in a more upright position. So this gives me hope – means that baby could potentially flip sometime during the nights as well.

eocenia: Very possible! Some people can feel it, some people can’t. I just happened to be one of those that did, it was the craziest feeling ever!

I was told at 34 weeks she was head down. Up until that point she was tap dancing on my bladder. Now at 37 weeks she’s still head down, but not engaged, and facing forward (sunny side up). I’m on a spinning baby mission too. Sitting at my desk on a birthing ball now and doing pelvic tilts everytime she gets super active.
