Transverse Lie

Postby Tes_Wants1 » Mon Aug 08, 2011 7:03 pm

So I wasn't surprised when my doc told me the babe was transverse todady....I already knew that since the last two weeks this kids bum or head has been sticking out my right side or crammed up under my right boob.
I"m 31 weeks now.....Doc said there is still time to move but typically the baby should have settled into it's final postion between 26-30 weeks. Anyone wanna shed some light or share their experiences with a transverse baby?

Thanks all!

Hi, I'm dealing with this right now actually. Well we thought all along she was transverse but it seems now she's more breech. We talked about doing a version but decided against it. Success rate for my Dr is only 1 in 3 and she's worried about placenta abruption. Still may flip (my son flipped at 37 weeks) but if no flip, we're doing a scheduled CS

I would not worry at 31 weeks, there is still a lot of time for baby to move, in fact I am surprised your doctor is worried about it this early. My baby was not head down at my 36 week appt (can't remember how he was laying exactly, LOL) and my doctor said to give it another week for him to turn before we even considered a transduction. By 37 weeks he had flipped to head down.

No experience with this, but in case you haven't heard of spinningbabies.com I just wanted to share this link: http://www.spinningbabies.com/baby-posi ... s/sideways

It explains a few exercises you can do at home to encourage baby to turn.

ds1 was head down from 20 weeks to 38, flipped transverse, i went to a local chiropractor who is know for turning babies, and he adjusted me, and then ds1 moved head down, and dropped. ds2 turned transverse at 34 weeks, same thing... went to chiro he get him to turn. imo i wouldn't be worried at 31 weeks, you still have plenty of time for baby to turn.

My 2nd son was transverse til about 34 or 35 weeks, then flipped. He turned exactly a day or two before my appointment to discuss what the next option was, lol. You still have plenty of time! We just moved (military) and im at a new ob and they havent even started checking position yet and told me they wont until im 35 to 36 weeks and that will be with an ultrasound.

I too dealt with this during this pregnancy. I went for a biophysical profile to check on the babys overall well being due to lack of accelerations. Anyhow they told me at that ultrasound that baby was transverse. Yesterday at my appointment the dr felt and said baby is head down but that it doesnt mean the baby wont flip back over. I have been really stressed about it because this is my last baby and im getting my tubes tied so i really do not want to have a csection but if that is what it takes to get me a healthy baby then im for it!

Babies can turn right up until labor, I would try not to stress about it.
