    I was told at 20 weeks I had a low lying placenta so booked in for another scan. The placenta has moved out of the way but baby is breech what midwife told me was the bum is in fact the head and the other thing is the baby is quite large !!!
    They esitmate it at 5lb 3 and I still have six weeks to go

    Any guesses on how big it will be in six weeks ?

    Aww thats good news about the placenta hun xXx There is still chance the baby will move for you. I reccomend getting down on your hands and knees and rocking each day for about 5/10 mins (sounds daft/looks daft but can work!)
    My first was breech at 34 weeks and he did eventually move, was also a big one weighing in at 9lb 8oz!

    I had a low lying placenta with my second, which moved enough by d day to allow natural birth thankfully.
    Same at 20 week scan with this one, got another scan at 34 weeks so I hope mine has moved too!
