Hi RF, I hope you don't mind, but I noticed you mentioned in sasasi's ECS thread that your 2nd baby was traverse. When did you find that out and did you try to move them? What did MW do/say? I found out tuesday mine is traverse at 35 wks. Didn't get much info from MW so I have googled it and scared myself a little. Is it something I should worry about? I don't want a CV (though reading the positive stories on that thread helped) so really want them to move. Also how do I know they have moved? And if they do move will they move back to traverse? Sorry for all the questions.

Hiya, he was transverse from about 32/34 weeks, no one was that bothered as they said he could move, I was having elective section anyway due to previous birth. So there's wasn't any need really to try to move him. Apparently you should be admitted at 37+1 for monitoring as there's risk of cord prolapse but because I didn't see the consultant at my 36 week appt there was confusion and no one said to me. At 37+2 I had a show, at 38+2 I went into labour, when I got in the staff were fantastic but were worried as waters bulging and if they'd have gone it'd have been quite an emergency (if your waters go with a transverse lie you literally have to get your bum right in the air when lying down and phone 999),
Hopefully baby will turn though, when are they checking again?? Iv no experience of the ecv either as I'd have refused that opted for a section.

Thank you for getting back to me. MW wants to see me next tues (36 weeks) but she didn't mention anything about what to do if my waters break (I scared myself by reading stuff on google about the prolapse risk) I've been doing some exercises to try and move them but I've no idea if it will work. To be honest she said very little about it all, so I'm keen to get some information that isn't just from google!
