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

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

Your OB doctor can reassure you when you go for your check ups with leopold maneuvers or even ultrasound if needed. ...Read more
