|17-2-2010 - WAYS TO DETERMINE YOUR BABIES POSITION IN THE WOMB RIGHT NOW
||My mood while writing this blog:|
Hey Ladies, I'm having serious kicks near my bladder that are becomming strong and a tad bit painful at times. it just started this week, as last week I felt a lot of movement up top and was told my baby was head down to the side. I decided to do some research as to try and confirm what position my son is in, since no more upper movement. So according to this info here, my baby is in the breech position...AGAIN..lol.. since iv been heqaring the hb about belly button level..he was time to turn but I hope its soon. These crotch kicks are litterally kicking my ass. They even catch me off guard at times. Enjoy it ladies and I hope you get some answers.
Here's how you can determine the position of your unborn baby yourself:
If your belly and navel pop out and/or you feel kicks under your ribs, chances are your baby is in the anterior position, with his or her back facing your front.
If your belly appears slightly flatter and/or you feel your baby’s kicks at the very front of your tummy, your baby is probably in the posterior position, with his or her back next to your back.
If you feel a lump near the top of your belly (usually on one side or the other) push lightly on it. Then:
If you feel the whole baby move, he or she is most likely head down, meaning you pushed on the baby's bottom.
If the lump you feel moves by itself, without the rest of the baby's body re-situating inside your belly, then that lump is probably the baby's head, which moves independently of the rest of the baby's body.
If you feel your baby's hiccups lower in your belly, then the baby is head down.
If the baby's hiccups are higher up in your belly, or even above your belly button, then your baby is most likely head up.
If the baby is kicking above your belly button, he or she is head down and in a good position for labor and birth.
If you're feeling extreme abdominal and rib pain, and you're in the later stages of pregnancy, then your baby is probably head up with his or her head close to or under your ribs. If you don't have this pain, your baby is probably head down, not breech.
Using a fetal stethoscope (or even a toilet paper roll), have your partner listen for your baby's heartbeat. Then:
If the baby's heartbeat is low in your belly, the baby is head down.
If the baby's heartbeat is either level with or above your belly button, the baby is head up.
