Can you tell what position your LO is in?

    I was just wondering if it's possible to tell at this stage (mine being 25 weeks) what position your baby is in? I get quite a bit of tickly movement just under my ribs, but more bumpy movements lower down, almost as if legs are at the top and head is down. Do they adopt the upside down position from now, or does that come later?

    I can usually tell where she is lying, especially when she's down the right hand side, if I run my fingers down my bump I can feel little bumps which the midwife told me were the back of her ribs. From there I can usually make out if the head is up or down. I think they usually settle head down after about 34 weeks, until then they keep flipping around.
     
  5. I was thinking about this last night as I was watching my belly wobble. It sticks out sometimes next to my belly button on the right hand side and the kicks were there aswell last night. I cant work it out.

    my doc showed me yesterday, she was head down and her bum was up my left side, and legs and arms on my right. She guided my hands and showed me and it made complete sense. Before I thought that the lump sticking out was her head.. but nope, thats down at the moment. I even felt her head just above my bikini line

    When I had my scan, little one moved around loads changing from breech on the right to lying on his/her back on over on the left! The sonographer said that at this stage they move around lots and settle down around 30ish weeks

    I can't tell position yet at all, but I do get a general sense of where LO is at any one time. S/he seems to like leaning on my left side, quite low down and nuzzling down against my bladder! Sometimes I feel bubs move across to my right too, but once s/he is over on the right I lose track of him/her!

    You know I've been wondering this myself! I have no idea how to tell. I get most kicks on my left side but very low down. Somtimes I get a few kicks higher up in my tummy but only as far as my belly button I think, most are low down.

    How can you tell what part of the baby is where? x

    HAha I can only tell my baby is more to the left since he/she isnt big enough yet.

    well - I did that "mean" flashlight trick, and know exactly where his head is, and where his legs are because of that. *giggles*

    Oh yeah - I meant to try that!


    ...purely to test his optic nerve, of course...
