This way up

It’s not just me doing my swimming exercises. It seems Peanut is not only in the correct position head down, but well engaged and facing backwards. I am so pleased! On the monitor today we even saw the baby sucking its thumb.

The fact that it is engaged now is good, as it is unlikely to ‘come loose’ in a first pregnancy. The amount of squirming and waggling I am feeling is down to exercises the baby is doing to keep active (a wriggler, like its cousin and uncle) and doesn’t seem to be an issue. Between you and me, if someone asked me to stand on my head in water for the next 2-4 weeks with no movement other than my neck and torso, I’d be wriggling too.
