Transverse at 25+ weekes?

Anyone had a transverse baby this far along? My midwife has been in practice for many years and says she's never seen this before. The baby is sitting pretty much straight across my abdomen, head on my left side. Because of this, I went from measuring several weeks ahead (25w at 22w) to measuring quite far behind (21w at 25w).

Her advice was to think "turning" thoughts and do gentle tummy massage when baby is active - basically lightly pushing clockwise to encourage her to move head down. Any other suggestions or advice?

If it makes a difference, I have an anterior placenta.
