    Had 34 wk scan yesterday- not had great pics of him at all the whole pregnancy so hoped this would be good one.
    but oh no, his head is facing upwards so they couldnt get a shot of his face :(

    then they reveal he is back to back with me, so im scared he wont move around before the birth :(

    and his head is very low down ready to engage

    AND he is already 5 and half pounds, so could be a 9 pounder by birth!

    ARGH!

    Hi Hun get on your birthing ball or on all fours this will help turn your LO they can turn while in labour also. My baby is back to back at 34 weeks but mw wasn't overly concerned. X x

    My mw said she wasn't worried about position before 36 weeks, so there is still a long time for them to move. But wow, that is a good weight at 34 weeks! Mine was 6lb 5 oz at 36 weeks, I'm hoping that the scan estimate isn't 100% accurate, or baby doesn't go over due!!!!! eek

    i have given birth to 2 back to back babies and hoping this one will turn as it can make for a longer labour. Got nothing to compare it to but i only found my 2nd to be difficult in respect of labour x

    Sounds like you have a very shy lo in there :), babies can still move around a bit but try all fours rocking side to side maybe. When I went for my 34week scan my lo was 5lb7 xx

    My bubs was back to back briefly right towards the end when he was 2/5ths engaged. Lots of ball bouncing and being on all fours helped. I also went on the wii fit doing hula hoops and step aerobics. Only do this after 37 weeks though if anyone is going to try it. Sorry scan pics wernt great but so long as bubs is good that's the main thing. :) hopefully not long until you meet the lil one!xx

    Shame about not getting a good pic of him, must be so frustrating!
    My midwife told me not to worry about the position of LO too much as some babies don't even engage until you're well into labour (which sounds scary I know, but our bodies are very clever and generally know what to do and when to do it).

    I thought 5lbs at this stage was quite normal? Plus the scans that estimate weight aren't very accurate, so don't take it as the complete truth

    ah thanks ladies. i knew he would be big, as im 5'11, and his dad is 6'3. He has been above average in leg length etc the whole time.
    You put on half a pound a wk from this point (well the baby does) so thats why they are estimating 9lbs. They got my sister's weight nearly right, so bit scared lol, but lots of people say big babies arent so painful to deliver so might be good!

    Im doing all fours occasionally, but due to my back pain, im not doing it as much as i should lol. Im just to darn lazy!

    5.5 is perfect and exactly what my LO was. He was 8lb exactly 2 weeks overdue so don't worry too much!

    In the olden days they used to recommend scrubbing floors to get babies into the right position!!!! Would rather be on all fours watching TV though!! lol

    My little fella is currently back to back with me and he seems he doesnt want to shift but the midwife has reassured me that this wont cause a problem. As she said 'At least he isnt feet first'

    Your LO still has time to move round hun
