Breech

The baby is still breech! The doctor discussed options for turning, c-section, etc. if there's no change in a few weeks. I really don't want any of that to happen! Hopefully, he starts putting himself into position soon!

Don't worry, my baby just flipped this last week and I was already 33 weeks. Your little guy still has some time to flip but I know it's hard not to worry when the doc starts talking about needing a c-section. Hang in there!

Just saw the midwife this morning and my LO is breech as well. She said not to worry, there's still plenty of time but suggested getting on spinningbabies.com and going over the optimal positioning stuff. Also, stay away from the couch, recliner and such, wearing my pregnancy belt (more so because I'm a multiparous momma and the abdomen muscles aren't what they used to be which also contributes to baby's positioning). I'm planning to get my birth ball dug out and cleaned up and I'll start sitting on that and also going over the spinningbabies.com stuff. No sense actually worrying about something that isn't here yet, I'm just going to do what I can to encourage good positioning and leave it at that.

Ditto here. Baby's still breech and my midwife mentioned a few options but mostly said not to worry at this point. There's still plenty of time for baby to turn on his/her own.

you have tons of time. No need to make any decisions until you're in labour. But chances are baby will have flipped Biggrin

As of my appointment last week, my midwife said that baby is kind of curled in a horizontal position right now. She said there is still plenty of time to flip also. I hope that my baby does that soon!

For the BTDT moms, is there anything you can look for in terms of movement that would indicate the baby is starting to try to flip?
