At 32 weeks of gestation, expectant mothers feel that the nurturing mission is almost complete. However, in the third trimester of pregnancy, a new concern appears — the fetal promise.
To determine how the baby is located in the womb, you can already at the 30th week of pregnancy. As a rule, having defined his position, the baby from this moment does not change the position until the birth. However, there is an opinion that future mothers with diagnoses of "high water", "low water", with a narrow pelvis or pathologies of the uterus may be included in the so-called risk group, which may well have non-standard fetus presentation.

RIGHT FRUIT POSITION
The most favorable for the baby and mother is considered to be the head presentation of the fetus. This position of the child has the lowest probability of complications during childbirth. At the same time, if the baby turned its legs or buttocks down, this may somewhat complicate the process of childbirth.
The most difficult doctors consider the transverse position of the fetus, in which the baby rests his shoulder in the pelvis. In this case, doctors recommend doing a cesarean section.
HOW TO LEARN THE POSITION OF THE FRUIT
If, after palpation, there is some uncertainty about the correctness of the baby's presentation, all doubts will be dispelled by ultrasound.
Already on the 33rd week of pregnancy, the fetus is in a comfortable position for it, preparing for childbirth. During this period, his movements become less and more cautious.
HOW TO RECOGNIZE THE POSITION OF THE FRUIT WITHOUT USE
The easiest way to independently determine the position of the fetus in the uterus is to listen to its heartbeat. For this you need a stethoscope and a silent room.
Starting to listen better from the left lower abdominal segment - in this place you can catch the sound of the heartbeat of most babies, “comfortably” sitting inside the tummy.
First, observe the movements of the baby (what is their character, in what part of the stomach do you feel them). After that, lie down on the floor and gently feel the baby through the stomach while the uterus is relaxed. So you can make these observations:
HOW TO TURN THE FRUIT: EXERCISES AT THE Pelvic Proposal
If the baby is "uncomfortable" turned, do not worry. With the help of exercises during pregnancy it can be rotated as it should. To do this, you need to repeat simple actions 2-3 times a day.
Stand on all fours from time to time, shaking your hips from side to side. This method will be especially effective when you feel that the baby is awake.
You can also perform a similar exercise without kneeling. Put your hands down, touch the floor with your hands and walk around the house in this position.

Sit on the floor, attach the soles of the feet to each other. Try to reach the floor with your knees, and pull your feet towards you. Sit like that for 10–20 minutes twice a day.
Do pelvic elevations, lying on your back.Lift the pelvis up, inhale, return to the original position - exhale.
Also not superfluous will be walking in the fresh air, exercise on fitball, swimming, exercise and other physical activity.
During the day, try to control how and on what you are sitting - the position of the fetus also depends on it. Sit on the edge of the couch, letting your belly lie between your legs.
