Since about 24 wks my bub moved noticeably higher up in my uterus and has been sitting rather uncomfortably high in my abdomen even since. He/she seems to be quite sideways and I feel like I am being pushed from the inside out, especially in my side rubs area.
Whilst I know it's still early days, I have been trying to influence bubs position with stretching/inversions, yoga, all fours, adjusting my sleeping positions, sitting positions etc and am fairly active etc. So far no luck, bub seems quite happy to lie high and sideways.
Am I being ridiculous worrying about this so early, or is there more I can do? My next appt isn't for a couple weeks. I know there is plenty time etc but it's so uncomfortable already!

I think generally it is much too early to worry but doing exercises to assist can help, even if it's to put your mind at ease a little.
For me, ds turned breech somewhere just prior to 28wks. I was constantly told not to stress (esp as 2nd baby) and was doing plenty of excerises to try get him to turn. Never happened for me, he happily stayed footling & was subsequently pulled out feet first via elective cs.
I know the uncomfortable feeling though. He would stretch out, head butt my ribs and kick his feet into my cervix. Very, very strange sensation copping both ends!

I had a similar experience in my second pregnancy. Baby was in a position that was physically uncomfortable for me but also my instinct told me that she was uncomfortable. I started seeing a Chiro for weekly appts and she found a nice head down position. Went on to have a nice 4 hour labour. I can't say for sure how chiro helped but I had a long difficult 18 hour posterior labour with my first and I felt that my babies were struggling to get comfy in my pelvis. I decided chiro might help put everything in better alignment. I was at the point of wanting to try anything and don't regret trying chiro. Good luck. X

I know position was a huge issue with my first as he would not engage properly due to head position, even after 20+ hrs of labor, and I ended up with emergency c. I think this is why I am so concerned already!
Guess I will give it another month and see what he/she does... OB will scan at next appt so I will know if he/she has changed position at all...
