Can your cervix move forward if stuck behind baby head (head is lower than cervix) @ 40 weeks? Will the cervix dialate at all behind baby head
Yes: It appears that you are referring to a posterior cervix which is normal.

As labor ensues, the cervix will dilate and eventually become mid position and is applied to the baby's head in preparation for delivery. ...Read more

Is there a way for me to 'feel' if baby is transverse? I feel pressure on lower left hip bone, kicks in front, some baby parts on mid right side. 33wk
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. ...Read more

My baby died in womb at 40 weeks + 4 days. No umbrical cord wrapping or placenta seperation. Does cephalo pelvic disproportion cause death. ?
Sorry for your loss: Tragically, many fetal deaths after 40 weeks remain unexplained. Cpd means that the baby gets "stuck" after a very prolonged labor. If your baby died before labor started, then it wasn't cpd. If you decide to have another child, give yourself enough time to grieve and heal, and then work closely with a perinatologist (high risk OB specialist) who can do extra specialized testing and monitor well. ...Read more
