Flipping babe

Rowan is back to laying sideways! Little stinker. I knew I had/have a higher chance of him not staying head down beacause of the extra fluid giving him extra room.

Anyone know of some ways to coax him back to head down? Ive been hip rocking, squating, staying on my hands and knees ect. Im not overly worried since I still have time but I want to avoid anymore drama with my Dr.'s

Right? Not even here yet and already causing trouble! lol

Mindie-I've been doing a lot of that already. The one thing Ive read is the best, is the 30 second inversion which they advise not doing if you have extra fluid. ):

I wonder what kinda look my OBs would have if I insisted on trying to birth a breech babe, or waiting until the last possible moment for him to flip.

I know, right. I already told my OB that if I need a c/s (my midwives deliver some variations of breech babies) that I will show up in labor for it.

My DD was like that. She flipped on her own at 38 wks. I remember reading somewhere that if you put an ice pack by their head, and a heat pack where you want them to go, that will encourage babe to move. Worth a try. I was way too scared to have the OB try to flip her so I was in scheduling the c section when they realized she already moved on her own.

Both of my girls were breech at 36 weeks. They weirdly both turned on their own. Maybe give it a little time?
