    Default Baby on the left side all the time

    Hi,

    My friend is due the same day as me.

    She is concerned that her baby is always on the left side and doesnt seem to like to move from there.

    Do you think this is a cause for concern or is baby just comfortable?

    My little one is always on the right side! I'd say s/he is just comfy where they are & doesn't want to move.

    Just comfy They find a favourite position around 16 weeks I think.
    My bub is always on the right hand side (when midwife checks the heartbeat she automatically goes to that side cos she knows its bubs favourite lol). I have a little bulge there, its so cute LOL

    I agree. Baby is just comfy. There is nothing to worry about.

    DS was on the left too, I think they just find a comfy spot and stick with it!

    Hi,

    Thanks so much for that

    She was very concerned about it. I told her baby probably just likes it there too. But she was concerned because at her 19 wk scan baby didnt want to move from there and they had lots of trouble doing the scan.

    I swear my DD spent nine whole months glued to my left side.
    I would poke and prod her all the time, she never moved from there. I thought it was weird at the time too She turned out to be a pretty laid back kid so there's a bonus

    Molly Jane stayed curled up on my left side and had her feet underneath my right ribs. She was there the whole time pretty much, ocasionaly would flip to the other side but not for long at all.
    I am sure that it is fine as i have had no problems at all.

    Kristi... Most people I know have prob's with the scan and bubs not moving. My princess was stuck tight right down low in my pelvis and I had to do all sorts of tricks to try and coax her up! In the end they managed, but not without difficulty! A lot of my BellyBuddies group had the same experience. I think it's because they have to do so many different measurements during that scan that they need the bub in different positions, and the little ones tend not to do tricks on command just yet!

    My little man just loves my right side... there's always this bulge on the left and then when I lay down my belly is all uneven because he never wants to move from that side. I try to move him around but he'll constantly end up right on the left again!
