Baby Mapping Position
Kneeling position: The knee chest position (with the pelvis higher than the head) may help your baby turn around. And come head first. ...Read more
Transverse is that: A transverse fetal position is just that, baby is sideways in the womb. Sometimes the wall of the uterus has a fibroid or the shape of the chamber is more like a heart than an egg, with a ridged outgrowth that prevents baby from assuming a head or bottom down position. This transverse position will interfere with a normal delivery & generally lead ti a c-section. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can a baby move from vertex to breech position after 38 weeks? he is in vertex position from the very beginning.currently he is at -1 station
Maybe/unlikely: You will know the final position when you go into labor & changes do occur. However, it is much more likely earlier in pregnancy when the amniotic fluid/baby ratio is higher & there is more room for them to maneuver. If He has maintained a steady position for 38 wks, it is likely to stay that way. However, I wouldn't make any bets on it. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Im 25 weeks pregnant. Diagnosed with placenta previa totalis. Baby is in breech position. Is there a chance of my placenta migrating and baby rotating?
Yes there is!: As the uterus grows your placenta may migrate up, and the baby may turn to the vertex (head down) position. There is no guarantee. You need to be watched closely. If previa still exists and/or baby is still breech at term, you'll need a c section. Avoid intercourse or anything else in the vagina while you have a previa. This could cause severe bleeding. Be seen for any bleeding. Good luck. ...Read more
Maybe: You can either do a version or most likely for what is best for you have an elective c/s for breech. Some patients depending on the number of previous deliveries might even attempt a vaginal delivery. Talk with you OB and a plan of action between you and your OB can be determined. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: Hi! Cephalic presentation means that the head is down which is the right position for a normal vaginal delivery. Since it's only 20th week, baby still has some room to move but most likely will not turn around. Your ob will continue monitoring baby's position because it's also important for the vertex (top of head) to be the presenting part. Good luck. ...Read more
Hard to say: It is accepted by most in the health care field that babies should definitely sleep on their back because it is felt to reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome. Long ago, i was taught that babies that slept on their backs had a higher incidence of scoliosis as infants than those that sleep on their stomachs, but it is not really believed anymore. Thank you for the question. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Our gyn said that our fetus gender is boy 18 weeks after preg. Using his clinic ultrasound. He said 100% as baby cooperated and legs open. Is it 100%?
While nothing: Is 100%, if the u/s saw a penis and scrotum, only a very masculinized vulva could mimic. It sounds like he/she OB is certain that your fetus has male gender. You will know for sure after birth. What is the rush? Curiosity and satisfaction have a price, and this isn't worth it. ...Read more
