Maybe: Your baby may be transverse at this stage of pregnancy. This does not mean that your baby is "stuck" in this position. Babies move a lot near the end of pregnancy and usually by 38 weeks are in the normal head down position. At 33 weeks there is no cause for alarm. Your OB doctor can reassure you when you go for your check ups with leopold maneuvers or even ultrasound if needed.
