38 wk appt - he turned breech - Update at #12

Argh, just got back from my appointment. The stinker turned and is now breech. I went in for my NST. When the nurse hooked me up, we couldn't find his heartbeat on the usual side, and found it completely elsewhere. Both she and I were like, oh no, he better not be breech. So, I do the NST for a while, my OB comes in and says it looked good. Then, we settled on an induction date, 4/21, and I was pretty excited, since that's only 1 day before the EDD and my OB will be there that day. Then, though, because of what happened with the NST hookup, my OB wanted to do an u/s to see his position. He was breech, so she gave me some exercises to do and asked me to come back on Fri. If he's still breech, she'll schedule a C-section for next week. She said that if, on the day of the C-section, he's flipped, they would induce immediately instead of doing the C. Ugh ugh ugh. I really don't want the C-section if possible, so please send this LO some "flip into position asap" vibes, please Smile

What a little stinker! I'm hoping LO flips back for you so you don't have to have a c/s. I'll send flipping vibes for you!

I love Ali's line of thinking - if he's done it once, he can do it again! Smile

Thx, all. These exercises are a bit weird, but hey, gotta try, right? There's been a lot of movement, but I cannot tell if he's turned.

Got back from my appt - he's still breech, bleh. C-section scheduled for next Wed 4/18, at 12:30p. I'll keep doing the exercises until then, so there's still a chance that instead of doing the surgery at that time, they'll induce instead.

I'm feeling better about it now, after having a few days for the idea of a c-section to sink in. I think it hit me hard because it was so unexpected, and for whatever reason, I didn't want a c-section. Intellectually, I know it's fine, but I had those feelings of "mommy failure" which is utterly ridiculous, I know. Whatever gets him in my arms safely!

Thanks all, for your wishes!

Aww I'm so sorry he hasn't flipped for you. I went through the same thing with my first.

We'll be having our babies on the same day! I'm scheduled for the 18th too!

I know what you mean about that disappointment.. Sad ..but there is something to be said about the peace you get when you realize what has to be done to keep your LO safe & healthy.
