Baby changing positions?

I am really hoping this is common and that it doesn't mean baby is going to do anymore moving. I'm 37 weeks and through my whole pregnancy (or at least since I've been able to feel her moving) her back has been on my left side and her feet have been on the right (head down). Well, this morning I woke up to feet in my left side! Now I'm freaking out that she's going to decide to flip around while she's at it. That won't happen, will it?!

I really doubt she'd have the room to just decide to flip at this's pretty darn tight in there. I'm sure everything will be fine.

Don't worry - flipping is pretty unlikely. She's just got a little more room to maneuver in your pelvis, being baby #2, compared with baby #1.

A week ago I felt(painfully) baby do a flip. A few times a day baby goes from posterior to ROT, but a full of flip was a huge squeeze for my 31 weeker/third baby, so I don't think it'd happen with your baby so late!
