    Am I way too early to be worrying about the fact my baby is breech and no signs of turning? Head is firmly wedged under my right ribs, it keeps poking out, its quite easy to find!

    Sometimes baby seems to go a bit transverse but then right back head up again.

    I'm starting to worry myself, and don't know if I'm just being stupid? :(

    I wouldn't worry. I asked what way mine was lying at midwife appt last week and was told it was too early to matter anyway. I was just asking out of interest to get an idea of what was where :) x

    Try not to worry. Babies tend to "assume the position" at about 36 weeks I got told. It's still got plenty of time to turn so try not to panic. Have you tried any of the positions to encourage it the right way??

    At my 28 week appointment she was breach, I had to see the me on tues night and she scared me by saying 'oh my god she's seriously low down and ready to go!' And I've still got ten weeks!

    She turned when I was on the plane going on holiday last week. Swimming and going on all fours can help but don't worry cos there's plenty time for baby to move x

    I don't even know how you can tell. I never know which way my baby is, although supposedly head down in the last few appointments. But I can't figure it out!

    Hope baby turns for you. Keep your sitting posture good (no slouching on the sofa), spend time cleaning floors and rocking on all fours and maybe that will help?!

    When you get a head poking out of your belly, it gets really obvious....its rock solid and round. And diagonally opposite on my left hip I keep getting booted!

    Have a look on spinning babies website for some exercises to help but there's bags of time for the turn.
    Squiggle was transverse for ages up until my last appt at 32 weeks and since then head down but like people have said they can turn very late, just before labour occasionally!
    Don't stress hun xxx
