    Exclamation Transverse lie - 2nd time around??

    Hi,

    My first baby was a transverse lie. I am currently 8 weeks pregnant and want to know what are the chances that this baby might be a transverse lie too?
    Has anybody had 2 transverse lie babies?

    Hi Sehra

    Just because your first baby was transverse doe not mean that this baby will be transverse. A few tricks you could use to get the baby in the right position are:
    Rest on elbows and knees for 20 mins each day. You can do this on the bed, floor, lounge, anywhere that is comfy.
    Shine a bright torch on the lower part of your tummy.
    Get a radio and put it low down on your tummy with music playing.
    Get DH to put his head on your tummy and talk to your baby.
    You could also try acupuncture/pressure.

    I would not bother trying these tips until you are 30 weeks or greater.

    Thanks for the reply Alan. Do you know why some babies are transverse?

    Default Yep....

    Hi Sehra

    I've had 3 babies all transverse lie, all born by elective caeser, the doctors said it could be due to the shape of my uterus, but they couldn't really say why, I'm pregnant with #4 and assume the same thing will happen again.

    Congrats on your pregnancy, Rose

    That would probably be the most common reason for transverse lie.
