  • I am 33 weeks pregnant and for the majority of my pregnancy my son has spent days alternating from being low to high. It freaked me out the first time it happened but I think its fine. Try talking to your doctor about your concern. They will help you understand what is going on.

  • I carried my first low(had her at 38 weeks 5 days) and each one got higher and higher. It is just they way you are carrying this one. Every pregnancy is different. But if you are concerned. Then talk to your Dr/OB/Midwife.

  • my son was low, and there were some complications (I was put on bed rest for the last 4 months of the pregnancy). I think as long as you aren't high-risk and everything else is normal then things should be alright. But if you are really concerned, talk to your doctor and see what he/she has to say.
