    Red face 27 weeks pregnant, baby transverse. I don't need to worry yet. Do I?

    This is my fourth pregnancy, and first transverse bub. He/she has been comfortable like this since 19 weeks as far as I know...

    The doctor mentioned it, but didn't seem worried. I wasn't worried. But have had a few friends say some things and now I'm thinking I shoud be worrying.

    My two births were both normal vaginal deliveries if that helps...

    Thanks

    Naaaah don't worry! I'm 27 weeks too and bub keeps flipping up and down and round and round. Waaay too early to worry.

    In fact a vague memory that subsequent pregnancies are more common to lie transverse initially because things are a bit roomier. May be making that up though!

    I'm pretty shocked about it, especially since I'm fitter than I was back then!

    Gotta love pregnancy eh?

    Don't stress bubs is just comfy in that position more roomy. Bubs will probably change positions on a weekly basis I know my baby did until a couple of weeks ago and I'm almost 37 weeks. If bubs is still in that position at around 36 weeks your OBGYN will look at options with you.

    My last bub was transverse up to about 35 weeks - plenty of time for yours to head south!

    Don't worry about it - perfectly normal at this stage of pregnancy.
