  • My babies both sat really high like your saying. What worked for me was getting onto all fours and kindof moving back & forth. It floated them down a bit so it was easier to breath! Hope this works! Good luck!

  • How far along are you?

    Babies go where they want, there is no turning them ...Unless you drink some fruit juice and lay on your left side for a little bit,...and hope like heck he turns haha...

  • I have the same problem except for my baby won't leave my pelvic area and is getting too big to be there. The nurse told me just to lightly push where the baby is and the baby might get mad and move but she told me that the baby would probably go right back.

  • I have the same problem my son loves to sit low in my pelvic area and is starting to cause my tailbone to hurt badly. I would just try to push lightly on the area and downward in hopes that the baby moves. I know my doctor told me to do the raising of the back like a cat on all fours to get my baby off my pelvic area.

  • i am a sloucher and i've had to stop because the baby goes up under my ribs and wont move for days. if he kicks especially painful on my ribs i usually try to push him down a little or lie on my opposite side to make him move but it doesnt always work

  • Moving your body around can sometimes help, though if he really likes it there he just might stay! My guy stayed high until about five minutes before he came out, and it was not fun! It didn't really bug me until the end, though, when it was "Get this baby out now or you're having a c-section." Good luck to you!
