babys in an oblique position? Ashley + four [BLB] Due November 21; 4 kids; Dayton, Ohio 10472 posts

at my last drs appointment the dr commented on how the baby is in whats called an oblique position, well at my 4d ultrasound last wendday they said that the baby is almost completly side ways now, was wondering how much of a chance there is for him to turn into the correct head down position and if any one else has went through this? its pretty hard to walk since his head is pushing against my hip bone, would love to hearhow others went through this and how many ended up with a csection....

My daughter was in all kinds of wierd positions. They can try to manually move the baby . . finally my daughter moved on her own. She was transver (side to side) up until 3 hours before I started pushing

Ok so the advice on this page is for a posterior labour, but I imagine it could help with oblique as well. So here you go, can't really hurt to try most of it. Just has to do with the way you lean when you sit. Like always leaning forward, it's supposed to help change their positioning..

Oh I almost forgot, and i don't know how crediblwe this is cause I thought the woman was an idiot. But doing pelvic rocks, where your on all fours and arch your back up, will supposedly help put your baby into postion, and it feel great on your back. So you may try that.

My first son was transverse lie (which is kinda worse than oblique so there is even more hope for you! yay! and certainly better than breech-yipes!)until between 37-38weeks-ish. He was 9 1/2 lbs and 23 1/2 in at birth ( at almost 41 weeks), even as big as he already was when he turned, he still managed it. I did nothing to help him. LOL It was all him!:D So hang in there mama, you have time!

My son was in a transverse position until I was like 32-34 weeks. He ended up turning on his own. So it is possible for your baby to get in the correct position.

Hmm my baby has been head down in the right position for months now but then last night I could feel one foot completely in my right side almost in my back and the other in the middle so it felt like he was all crooked or something.
