    ah, fingers crossed bubs is getting into a better position for you. I think mine may have moved too, I'm definitely getting more movements higher up and lower down than I have been over the past couple of days. I can never tell what position she's in though, there seem to be lumps and bumps everywhere!

    Here's hoping both our babies get past this naughty stage!

    Hi!I have asked this somewhere else but I can't remember where I wrote it to check if I got a response!!!Anyway I'm 33 weeks pregnant and as of yet nobody has even checked the postion that my little one is lying in.I didn't really think anything of this till I started reading some of the threads on here and I can see that some of you guys have know since like 28 weeks or whatever?!?!?Is anyone else in the same boat or is it just me?I had a growth scan at 28weeks (evetything appeared fine) and the baby was lying in a transverse postion then....but nobody commented on that-and since I still had 12 weeks left it didn't concern me either!
    Anyway I was just wondering!
    Cheers x

    Pam the baby might be oblique. Mine moved from transverse to oblique for a couple days, then went head down.

    My doctor checks the position every week. It takes like 5 seconds, they just feel down really low to see if the head is there. Ask your doc/midwife to check. They started checking mine at 30 weeks

    Flippin'! You need a suspension tank or something. One of those zero G pods. :lol: I'm right there with you tho hon; on my left I get acid reflux something chronic, on my back I just plain get stuck :dohh: and on my right Bubble starts complaining. The most comfortable position atm is during the day propped upright on the sofa with the cushions. :lol: It's a shame I don't get to snooze during the day much really. :D

    I think the baby is oblique really. From where I feel hand movements I think the head mustn't be too far off central. I've got my MW appointment on Monday so we'll see what she has to say. I guess she'll give me another 3 weeks before sending me for a position scan.
