Worried - can LO become disengaged just before labour?!
I am due today and have had cramping on and off. Baby has been head down (4/5 engaged for about a month). This morning, however, she appears to have disengaged and it feels like she's breech. I won't be having any more checks until I go into labour, but surely if the baby is breech, going into labour is dangerous??
I'm not too sure if there would be enough room for baby to completely turn but if you're worried I'd give your labour ward a call or day assessment unit if they're open today and see if someone can check you over. If there's anything to worry about I'm sure they would be able to tell you after a quick examination
tricky one, usually they dont diss engage, especially if ur first, however 4/5ths is only just over the brim and not deeply engaged, are you positive bubs is no longer engaged, could baby have not enagaged more deelpy and movement in different place?
id seek some advice from maternity ward and take it from there. xx
What makes you think LO is now breech? I doubt there is enough room to turn at 40wks and you would have felt and seen it happen as the biggest movement ever and v.uncomfortable if not downright painful.
my movements changed position when she dropped more...could it be this?
Thanks ladies, I feel much better now that I've read your replies. LO has always been on my left side, but now she has completely moved position and I'm feeling kicks below as opposed to the top where I normally feel them.
Will give the hospital a call if she's in the same position tomorrow.
