    Mine is anterior- if they are worried about it being low they will scan a bit later on to check the position.

    Do you get a 20w scan?

    I have that too, i have read that babies can prefer the back to back position as it means their face is resting on the placenta, but mw said just keep active and mobile and if it is b2b it can always turn....so don't worry hun.. its no biggy.... :hug:

    mine was anterior and she lay back to back for most of the pregnancy. I had no problems and she tured at the end. Took longer to feel her kicking which was upseting because my OH went to afganistan for 3 months when i was 20 weeks pregnant and he didnt get to feel her kick b4 he went. she started kicking within days but i wouldnt let anyone near me to feel till he came back from afgan.

    Mine was anterior: had no problems whatsoever! It just meant (in my case at least) that baby's kicks were a bit 'cushioned' :)
