Any one on here have any experience of their baby being in the oblique position??
Im only 32 weeks so I know baby has time to turn but was after your eexperiences.
did your oblique baby turn and if so at how many weeks??
Did you get admitted to hospital at 38 weeks?
if your waters went before you were admitted were you told to call an ambulance??

I think GB had this. Does she still come on MD?

No he didn't. Isaac was oblique. Just check your hospital policy because a lot if places want to admit you at term(37 weeks) as if your waters go there's a real risk of cord prolapse Geordie Barbie was admitted, I was supposed to be but no one told me so the sh1t hit the fan when I went into labour and they discovered I should never have been sent home! I was taken for section as waters bulging

Cp, were you oblique for a long time??

Yes from about 31 weeks, at 37 he moved to head down then back to oblique , I'd read that all oblique lies should be admitted at term (I was 38+3 and in labour) and I posted on pp and dw and was told to get my bum in the air and get to hospital! I'd no idea as no one had said! I then got to hospital and the mw sh1t herself!
But I didn't attempt to turn him as afaik I was having a section so it didnt matter to me that he was oblique/head down/breech iyswim. There's plenty time for him to move and ask your mw the policy as some places might be different x

How did you know that he had moved back from head down to oblique again. It frightens me that baby may move back to head down but in the blink of an eye could be oblique again and then I go into labour without know he is oblique iykwim. I know it's irrational panicking but there we have it!

I knew he'd changed as I had a scan and he was head down and then the following week the mw said he was breech or oblique and I said he wasn't (he was ) had to go for another scan and yep he was oblique again. When I went I to labour the first thing they did was scan me before they even checked how dilated I was.
I just seen ur original post, apparently if your waters go you need to phone an ambulance and put ur bum in the air. My cousin was actually at an antenatal appt in hospital and her waters went with an oblique lye and they literally held her upside down and got her to theatre!

Scary stuff.....I guess I just better hope to god he moves himself!!!

Speak to the mw, I'm sure there's a spinning babies website that gives you tips to get baby moving, also they will be rescanning you too so don't worry, and if he still is oblique they will speak of sections and get you in so don't panic x
He has plenty time to move though x

Not me but my colleague had this recently. She wasn't admitted but told to call and ambulance and stand on her head if she went into labour. She had an ECV at 39 weeks which worked and baby arrived naturally 6 days later so there is hope!

Seriously, how at 39 weeks can you stand on your head

What is oblique lie? Same as transverse?
26/04/2013 at 09:53
Transverse is horizontal across your tummy, oblique is diagonal, so at the moment his head is pressing in to my hip and bum is by the right if my belly button, feet in my ribs ouch! It's so uncomfortable. I was transverse with C for weeks and until 35 weeks but I don't remember that being as uncomfy as this. He just seems to be pressing on all the wrong places!
