    Default Afraid baby has turned breech!!

    I'm currently 36 weeks with my 3rd bub and have a terrible feeling that baby has managed to turn himself sideways!! I can feel simultaneous kicks/punches at the sides of my bump , and yesterday morning I could also feel what I think was hiccups at the side of my bump also.
    Now I don't see the Midwife for another week, and am feeling quite anxious about it.
    Do you think I'm being silly? Is this a common occurrence?

    When I was that far along DS was kinda curved along one side of me, so his back kind of against the right side of my belly. This meant I felt movement everywhere, kicks on my bottom side, punches on the other side and top. Try not to panic as it could easily be that your baby is in a position like that. There also is time for baby to turn.

    If you google 'spinning babies' there's a website all about it and may be able to offer some reassurance but probably best not to actually do any of the exercises until you're positive baby needs to be turned.

    3rd babies can shift right till birth.

    If you want to encourage bub head down- rock on hands and knees for 5-10min then walk 10-15min then repeat a couple of times a day. The rocking gives bub more room to shift head down, and the walking showing bub where to go and hopefully stay there.

    Once your care provider confirms bub is head down - no more swimming or water stuff. The buoyancy can confuse babies to switch back around.

    Yep. Pls make sure bub is definitely bum down before you attempt anything.

    The rocking tho won't effect a head down baby.
