Spring/Summer 2012 Baby Bumps!

Unexpected OBGYN visit...

I went in today because LO has not been moving much the past two days.  They hooked me up to a fetal stress monitor for about 20 minutes and thankfully the doctor was happy with the results.  I then find out that I have blood in my urine that they will send out for a culture and doctor tells me baby is transverse (sideways)!!! I was shocked to hear this, but she explained to me that was another reason I am not feeling much movement and why I don't have the nice, big round pregnant belly I so want...lol.  So now we have to hope baby turns by 36 weeks or it could be a possible c-section :( I was just wondering if anyone else went through something similar to this??

My first LO was transverse. I Had to have a c-section anyway so I wasn't to worried about her flipping around. It was a while ago but what I do remember is that she would strech arms and legs and I though my sides were going to expolde. :( Sorry I hope your little one moves soon.

Glad to hear LO is healthy. I just learned my LO is breech at 32 weeks. My doc said only 4% don't turn by birth. I also read that transverse is more likely to turn. Fx both of ours turn!

Glad to hear that the movement thing wasn't an issue and that your LO is doing just fine!


The good news is transverse is better than breech.  Check out these two websites for exercises you can do to help get baby head down:

But honestly, since they don't pay much attention to the baby's position until you are closer to 36 weeks, try not to worry about it yet.  A lot of babies are able to move around quite a bit until then.  My fingers are crossed that your LO will turn!

Yup that was me. Cash was transverse my whole pregnancy. They wanted to do a version to try to move him but I opted for the c section instead. Like others said she was only concerned once I made it to 36 weeks. I was seriously uncomfortable at the end of my pregnancy though due to his position. I am a teacher and I would lay on the ground during recess to get some relief.

Right now my baby girl is breech as well. I've been seeing a chiropractor that specializes in pregnant patients and she's been trying to help turn her. I also do some of the exercises on spinningbabies.com. I really want to avoid a csection! Hopefully she turns for you :)
