    My baby has been lying for the last few weeks with his head just below my ribs and his bottom on the opposite side below my tummy button. Is this how everyone elses babies are/were lying at 27 weeks or are they head down? I wasn't sure if this was 'normal'?

    Mine was lying with his head over towards my right hip and curled up .
    They can change position easily before 35 weeks I think it is,so plenty of time for your LO to move to head down .

    Mine didn't shift until 3 weeks ago,he must have been very comfy :)

    The same position she's in now!
    She's been with her head under my right ribs and her feet under my left ribs from *at least* the second scan... she hasn't moved an inch :dohh:

    "Peanut" was head down at 27 weeks, with the rest of their body all on my left side, which is why my stretch marks are so dominate on that side.

    "Peanut" has now flopped over to my right side, head down still.

    Lots of time for them to become head down hun. Do not worry.

    mine was head up, feet down at 27 weeks, then at my 30 week scan was head down, and his bum switches from left to right side, but his head has been down since.

    i could only really tell from the scans i was having...but i guess if you feel the kicks up by your ribs or down below you know his feet are there.

    mine was breech at 27 weeks, happy to say hes turned round now tho he does tend to keep changing his mind which is frustrating ! knew he was gonna be a sod before i was even pregnant :rofl:

    Mine has been in the same position since conception I’m sure. With his/her head down, bum under my left ribs and legs/feet under my right ribs or kicking out of my right side

    check out the spinning babies website...theres a page on how to work out which way baby is laying. apparently where u can feel big kicks r his feet and little fluttery feelings r hands.

    i had a scan yesterday and they said LO is head down. He seems a bit sideways with his bum on my right side and his feet just above my belly button. i dont think there is a 'normal' way to b laying at this point...its not til later that u need to b concerned.

    My right ribs are bruised from the other night when i was eating a cornetto! She was not amused!!!
    But she is normally head down and occasionally shimmies round the other way
    At my last mw app her positioning was "long" anyone know what that is?
