Baby in transverse position at 34 weeks...

So the Dr. says he gives me to 36 weeks for the baby to get into the right position. After 36 weeks he said only 1 in 5 babies will turn. Anyone else experience this? Thanks Mary

Re: Baby in transverse position at 34 weeks...

With my first Pregnancy my DS stayed in Transverse near the end. My Dr. Said that sometimes they could push on your belly to turn the baby. (Which I didn't like the sound of) But I had a Placenta Previa so they were scard to try on me, and we ended up scheduling a c section because of my Placenta Previa.

Re: Baby in transverse position at 34 weeks...

I second that babygirl224 how do they know what the position of the baby is? I asked my doc if they do an ultrasound near the end and he said they usually only do one ultra sound at 20 weeks. In my case they will do one cause if the baby is small they may allow me to deliver naturally but if the baby is of normal size then they will schedule a C-sections.
The question remains however, how do they know the position of the baby without doing an ultra sound?

The doctor can feel where the head is as apposed to the butt and feet. I can;t, but the guy with 10 years of medical school and a lot of on the job training can!

Re: Baby in transverse position at 34 weeks...

I am pretty sure the Dr's can tell by feeling. In my case the Nurse couldnt find the babys heartbeat yesturday during my normal visit( I was so scared for like 10 minutes) then they took me to the ultrasound room to have a look. Nice normal heartbeat, just the little guy was up very high and sideways I am seeing a perinatalogist for my high risk pregnancy. I have another ultrasound scheduled for July 8th to measure the baby and then a level 2 scheduled for July 21. I really hope he turns Mary
