Baby back to back


Hello ladies,
I had my midwife appointment yesterday and she said the baby is lying back to back. Did anyone else have that at 36 weeks and did your baby turn? I have not got a bouncy ball, so I am sitting on hands and knees a few times a day. The baby moves loads though, so not sure what position it is in now, seen as I can feel the feet in my left side underneath my ribcage?

Thanks! X

My LO is still back to back despite all efforts to get her to move! Although my mw said she still may as she is very wriggly! good luck hun

My yoga teacher said another position to help gravity encourage the baby's back to swing round is to sit on a kitchen chair round the wrong way, and lean forward onto the back of it (use cushions to make it more comfy). Obv not if you have spd or pelvic pain though. It's a good position to watch TV - I could stay there for hours!

Hey, it means my baby's back is lying against my back. It can make labour a lot harder and give you back contractions.
Hmmm.. I will try that chair position and see if that can shift it! I hope it has turned when I have to go back to the midwife..

Whenever you lie down make sure it's on your left side as MW said babies prefer rolling to the left so might be more likely to turn around that way x

my LO was back to back at 36 weeks and she turned herself back round. i was meant to spend some time on my hands and knees to try turn her but cant due to having bad knees. but luckily she has turned herself

Both my 2 were back to back and so is this LO and i can honestly say i dont think it made it harder, obviously i have nothing to compare it to but i had it quite easy for them being back to back. I had contractions in my back as well as my front but i dont think it made it any worse.

That is great news. I looked through my notes and saw it was back to back at 28 weeks as well. The baby moves so much though that I have the feeling it lies in about 20 different positions within an hour hahaha!
I hope mine turns as well...
