I just had an ultrasound on 29 Dec'16. and my doctor read the report as unstable presentation of fetus. she said bcoz fetus is very small and it keeps moving that's why we call it unstable.

but I m not satisfied with this statement. I am in my 4th month of pregnancy. I am worried

it's normal for the baby to move around at this time . it's called a changing presentation. I wouldn't use the word unstable. it's normal you have nothing to worry. as the baby will grow it will settle into a position. Just check if the fetal growth is appropriate.

Unstable position simply means that the baby is not in a fixed position which can be recorded. Somewhere in month seven the baby will have a more fixed position and the report can then show vertex or breech or transverse.

thank you so much Dr. Payal and Sonali
