  • HI! I have 4 kids. My first son flipped and stayed down. My 2nd, 3rd and 4th didn't. They have plenty of room to roam, and did! My second pregnancy was a little boy, and he was transverse. (Side ways) So, Iwas told we were going to do an "External Version" or E Version, It was scary! So, we were in the procedural room, and they did an ultrasound to see which way he was. Overnight, he moved with his head angling down, not exactly in position. So, they tried to move him a little more, and that hurt! But, after all, they all were facing down at the right time and none of them were c sections. Best of luck to you.
