    Default Baby in transverse position

    At my NT scan (done @ 13 weeks) I was advised bub was transverse position.
    I know it's really early but it seems it prefers it,
    Have you had it from early on and it's stayed there or has bub moved ?

    Default Baby in transverse position

    Both my babies flipped around a lot until way into the 30 weeks. It seems odd that they would even note the position of a 13 week scan, baby is so tiny with so much room, I wouldn't worry yourself about it.

    Default Baby in transverse position

    My baby was always transverse until about 20 weeks... He finally turned head down and stayed that way until the end. He then went posterior but decided to go transverse during the pushing stage which I believe is very rare. A transverse baby needs to be born by c section but it was too late for us unfortunately so he was forceped out. Due to his large size there were complications but I believe had he been normal size it would have been a bit less dramatic. I don't think you need to worry at this stage. It's annoying as they get bigger and you feel like a tyre is around your waist!

    Yep baby's position when so tiny is irrelevant. Surprised they mentioned it at all

    my dd was transverse until 32 weeks then she was breech ankles near her ears. I ended up (from other complications) having a caeser. What will be will be but its still very early for you and like the other ladies said babies move alot. Try not to worry too much.
