Okay I know I still have some time but I am very worried that my baby wont turn head down. I am 32 weeks. She was laying sideways across my stomach for a while. Now she is head up with her head in my ribs. The doctor didnt seem concerned and said they will worry about it at 36-37 weeks. But I am so worried!! I really dont want a c-section. Is anyone else in the boat? Is there anything I can do to help her move?!?

i am in the same boat, they said if the baby didnt turn they were going to try to turn it manualy with their hands, i hurd this is painfull. So i am very scared too. But my doctor said they could still turn so dont worry about it too much untell 36-37 weeks like your doctor said. Good luck to you, i am 32 weeks also..

In my childbirth cla__ses we learned a couple of ways to try to get the baby to turn. Its kind of silly but she said to play music or shine a flashlight down at your *coochie* and the baby could get curious and come down. She also said you could lay with your hips up in the air, supported by a pillow or whatever. Talk to you dr and see if there are any other "natural" ways to try to get the baby to turn.

Mine was head up then she moved to head down and yesterday she was head up again. I am 32 weeks also. Hope our little ones turn.

Well Im glad I am not alone. I hope all of our little ones turn around. I will try the flash light and music thing. Though I will feel really silly. :o) I have also heard to get on all fours helps them turn as well. I guess it couldnt hurt to try.

From Yoga, I have heard that the downward-facing-dog position helps turn the baby. My doula said that when you or your significant other talks to the baby, talk to the lower part of the belly. Pat that part, pay attention to that part. Mine is head down, but sunny-side up, so I am working on cat/cow positions, and hip rotations to prompt baby to flip facing backward. Anyone else have ideas of how to get that to happen? Good luck to you and your baby!
