I was having some contractions at the time and they decided to induce because if I went into labour spontaneously and he was still transverse there was the risk of cord prolapse. So for me they turned (nudged) him into position then induced. Definitely talk to your Dr about your options. They may not induce you at 36 weeks, but they would certainly monitor it and induce early if they felt it was a risk. Having said that they usually consider anytime from 37 weeks to be full term so it may just be the matter of having to wait an extra week.
check with your doc first though in case you have a medical issue that means you shouldn't be doing these exercises. I wouldn't stress until you are closer to 36 weeks though.
OOOHHH... INTERNET FIGHT. WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO? CAPS LOCK ME TOO DEATH?
(Noddy's not fat ffs!)
In first labours bubs are usually engaged before labour, but not all and in subsequent labours babies often engage once in labour.
remember the uterus is a muscle. when you are stressed your muscles tense up. Maybe you should try doing some relaxation techniques and see if that helps. But it really is still very early to be worried about not moving. lots of babies are still deciding what they are doing at this point so you can't really assume what he has done up until this point will dictate what he will do for the rest of the pregnancy. smile
I am 31 weeks along with a unsteady lie baby and at my next hospital appt on the 13 sept i will be 36 weeks. Can i ask for a induction if at that appt they have to turn him to stay head down? I really am struggling with him always spinning around and i am really concerned that i my waters might break and he would be stuck sideways sad This is my second pregnancy.
speaking from experience, they wont induce you - the exact same thing happened to my sister, and her bub was the wrong way so ended up being a c sect
i wanted to be induced too cos i had an antenatal on the tues and i was 3 cm dilated and on the friday, when my waters broke, saturating 2 beds, 6 mat pads and my clothes, they wanted to send me home and wait it out.
hope you have better luck!
my DD was breech (i know it's not trans, but just a story), then at 38 weeks she turned on her own, head down, but didnt engage or 'drop' until i was actually in labor
I honestlly wouldnt start worrying about it until you are closer to your due date & your Dr's will be sure to offer you your best options.
I also agree with OC about the relaxation. you could try some accupuncture/pressure for relaxation & to try to turn baby.
