It still early hun dont think they take the position important until around week 35ish..
My baby last week was transverse this week she is head down but still not in the ideal position.. Midwife said not to worry.
I try not to worry to much. Most babies will turn. As the babies head is the heaviest part and gravity will put that head hopefully down before lil one gets to big My mother is the supervisory of all midwives she said that 90% will turn. And if they don't they will try to turn baby so u can still hopefully have a normal delivery I wouldn't worry til about 37 weeks then see where u are then. gd luck xx
My ds was transverse at around 34wks and he turned! He was head down and i had a normal delivery. Dont know if it helped but i shon a torch down near my pubic bone and tried a few other things like getting on all fours. Anything to avoid a section! I had a 39wk scan at the time to confirm the correct postition. You still have time.
My baby was head down last week and this week is transverse so they still like to change at this stage. My MW wasnt concerned at all as they can keep changing. Its later down the line it can be a problem xx
It's really really rare for first time babies to be transverse at time of delivery (it happened to my friend and she was told it only happens in 1-2% of cases for first time mums) so very very likley that baby will turn. If your LO is still transverse at 36 weeks they might offer you EVC, which is a technique where they manually turn babies from the outside through manipulation. It can be painful and in breech babies the success rate is just under 60% but with transverse babies it is nearer 90%. So try not to worry - plenty of time yet!
