Baby Prefers One Side of Uterus


I am 31 weeks along and for the past few weeks, the baby has been preferring to stay on my right side. The only time he travels to the left is when I am sleeping on my left side. The doctor told me this is normal, but the feeling is just so weird and tight. He is head down and i can feel his back side and butt on the right side of my belly. I am also getting more stretch marks on the right side. Does this happen to anyone else? I asked two other ladies from my pregnancy class and they had no idea what I was talking about.

Mine too hun 90% of the time she is on my right side. She goes to the left sometimes and in the middle but never stays long. I think its quite common hun x

This baby has been with his back/butt to my left side, head down for about 12 weeks now with no switching of sides so I guess some babies like particular positions.

My baby has been locked onto my right side for weeks now. The OB said she seemed pretty fixed, as her head was low in my pelvis as well. I think this is a good thing, because it means this will be the likely position when labour starts (rather than baby turning posterior or something).

Thank you for your reply ladies! I guess it is just preference. I tried pushing him gently over last night and he just pushed back, it was cute!

My baby has her back and bum on my left side, and I have more stretch marks on my right side where I get all the kicks. My midwife said she's slightly back to back though so I need to get bouncing on my ball to try and straighten her up.
