My husband spoke about the force needed to get bub out, but I was completely oblivious to it all. So warn hubby that it might be full on to watch, but I think it's worse for them than us (in that respect, anyway!!!)

Please try not to worry about bub being in this position. I think you mentioned in another post that you have an ant placenta and you know this may be why she is laying this way. It is very likely that during your labour when she fully engages and moves down and past your placenta that she with change her position (especially if you remain active as I think you plan to).
Even if bub doesnt change her position or if you need the help of the vacuum for any reason this is VERY unlikely to cause bubs head to be mis-shaped for a long period. The vac will likely cause a bruise-like bump that is caused by soft tissue swelling from the suction. The 'cone-head' shape is caused the intense pressure and squeeze that happens as bub goes through the birthing process and the soft bones of the skull are molded to fit. The reason you often see this with babies that have had the vacc used on them is because if you needed the vacc it often means it was a very tight fit. For the vast majority this shape resolves in a few days or weeks.... not months.
Sorry for the long ramble but I get the feeling you are really worried and you really dont need to be. I hope all these replies have put your mind at rest.... about this topic at least! X

I'm trying not to worry and know that everything will be fine and that I am in good hands no matter what, but for some reason it has really got me down. I think it's because everything was just going so smoothly and even though it's only a minor bump in the road, it's a bump that I didn't expect and it's just thrown me a little. I really do appreciate the support and will come back and share the story of my labour once she's born and I bet it'll be a positive one
