Dr. appointment today

I am 1 cm dilated, bp good, baby is measuring good, heartbeat very good.....still breech!!!!!!! My Dr didnt really want to schedule a c-section, but to be on the safe side, he has scheduled it for April 11, just in case. Soo...hopefully baby turns soon!! If not though, I've decided I'm pretty much ok with a c-section, as long as my baby gets here safely. She's feeling much lower today, so I dont know if that means that shes getting ready and not planning on turning, or what.

Needless to say, I'm still going to try a couple of things to get her to turn....just to see if it works!

I hope she turns for you! Other than that sounds like you had a great appt! And at least you have an end date, even if she doesn't turn.

I'm glad you're okay with a c/s if it comes to that. And you're right, it doesn't matter as long as she gets here safe!

Fingers crossed your LO turns for you. Keeping trying all those different things. Did your doctor mention doing a version? That is something they can do if you are comfortable with it but I think it has to be done asap (like in the 37th week, maybe 38th but I'm not sure) before there is even less room.

Hopefully both our LO's will do a big flip for us soon!

He didn't suggest the version, but I already told him I'm not interested. I've heard some women have to get a spinal before they can even get it done and I've heard that it hurts. I'm just gonna stick with the other natural non painful ways.

I really hope LO turns. Try everything!! I have known of moms who's LOs turn VERY late in the game, so make sure to check just one more time, just in case, if you get down to the last minute. If you end up going for the c/s, it will have an effect on your future birthing preferences. Better to avoid that if possible since there are so many things you can try first. That being said, sometimes LO's are breech for a reason. I hope everything works out in your and baby's favor!!! Fingers crossed for ya mama!
