    Default 37 Week appt. Transverse baby/spinningbabies.com

    I had my 37 week appt. yesterday and found out the baby was transverse (sideways) with its head in my left ribs and its butt in my mid belly on the right. I was pretty devastated as I have been preparing myself for a natural birth and the first suggestion my Dr. made was to do a c/s. After talking with her and telling her my thoughts on c/s and induction, she was very supportive and apologetic for alarming me. She send me on the way with a "we'll see what happens by next week". I was pretty upset. I came home and started researching everything I could do to turn the baby and I remembered www.spinningbabies.com. The first thing we tried was inversion a couple of times and then my DH and I started pushing and pulling. He pushed down on the head and I pulled up on the butt. We got baby to turn! I was SO surprised that we were able to do it so quickly. Here we are 24 hours later and baby is still head down. I have been taking it pretty easy and trying not to contort myself too much.

    Im glad you got the baby to go back to vertex!

    Pay careful attention to movements for the next few days - what you did sounds like the home version of "external cephalic version" which is normally done under ultrasound guidance with an epidural...it can potentially cause placenta and/or cord issues.

    So, just be hyper aware of baby movements and get checked if they decrease, ok?

    STAY HEAD DOWN, baby!!!!!!!!

    Movement has been good! All day lots of movements, just like normal. Yeah, we realized that it was probably much more dangerous than we know. Neither of us were really thinking of the risks involved. I hope we didn't mess anything up.

    Ditto this! It can also cause your membranes to rupture prematurely. I'm glad you are getting good movements and everything though. Hopefully babe decides to stay put!! Head down vibes coming your way!!!

    Glad baby turned...even though you probably shouldn't have done it on your own. Pay attention to your body and the baby movements, and trust your intuition if you think anything is wrong. You're term now, so if baby needs to be born you'll be ok, but better safe than sorry.
    I hope baby stays head down and everything is fine!!

    Congrats on getting your LO to turn! I was going to suggest that before I got to the end of your post!! I'm quite sure he'll stay that way until his birth day!

    Hmm.. Not to argue or anything but when my doc tried it there was not u/s or epidural or any mention of one.. I wouldn't worry about it just see how things are at your next appointment.

    My doctor was actually thrilled that we were able to get the baby to move. She seems like the only one who wasn't totally freaked out by it. Baby has stayed head down and I think even moved into perfect position to be birthed!
