Hi, this thread is sort of linked to JanetF's thread about optimal positioning of the baby but I have a specific question about the placenta so I thought I'd start a new thread.
I am 35 weeks pregnant and for the last couple of weeks I have been thinking about the positioning of my baby. The last few times I have been to the Dr he has told me that the baby's head is down ( the spine is sometimes on the right and sometimes on the left).
I was reading through my earlier u/s results and I noticed that it said I have an anterior placenta. Does this mean that the placenta is attached to the front wall of my uterus?? Where does the placenta most commonly attach itself?
Also, I read somewhere that the baby naturally faces the placenta in the uterus so if mine is on my front wall, will my baby have a tendency to face the front rather than my back ( which I have heard is a better position).
I don't have long to go and I am starting to think ( worry?) about the position of the baby. I want to do the best I can to make sure it is right ( I am following some tips on the links JanetF posted).
I am seeing my Dr on Thursday but wanted to see what the BubHub mums knew first about this.
