Anybody else have a breech baby right now?

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
I went to my 33 week appt. this morning and my suspicions that baby is breech was confirmed. I know it's soon enough that baby can easily turn but I have to say this is making me nervous. I am planning an HBAC and I just want everything to go smoothly. (My MW will do a breech delivery if needed which helps me feel a little calmer.) Anybody else there now and working to get the baby to turn? I love to share hugs!

Waiting confirmation, the last visit the midwife could not tell which end was up? I feel more kicks on my cervix and head bumps in my diaphragm so my guess is heads up, semi lotus position...if they still cannot tell I will be having an Us to confirm position. I have an anterior placenta and the HB is heard right at my umbilicus so there is no definitive answer with that either.

Yep, here too. I'm finding it super uncomfortable. We went out of town last weekend and woke up in the hotel the first morning without the hard bump high up. The baby had turned! I was so excited. That lasted about 24 hours and baby was back flipped around again. I'm so bummed. I guess it's a good sign that the baby can turn but it's so uncomfortable and even though its early, it makes me nervous.

at my last appointment my MW said baby might be breech. I am wondering if she/he turned between then and now, because I feel hiccups really low down. Do you feel hiccups high up when they are breech? (I am really not good at telling body parts through my abdomen, even though I don't have much extra padding)

found the answer to my question.. http://www.associatedcontent.com/art...y_baby_in.html I guess low hiccups =head down.

Thanks for the link! I am obsessed with fetal positioning this time around!

I'm almost 35 weeks and still breech. I don't like the "plenty of time" bit. I am also doing a HB and want this baby in position - like 5 weeks ago. haha I hurt my back really bad a few weeks ago and started going to the chiropractor. She said my pelvis was really uneven and we are working to get that straightened out. I also had a friend do hypnosis on me (we are both HypnoBirthing Educators). I do the breech inversion from www.spinningbabies.com, but I think it really sucks, so I have only done it a few times. I am getting Moxa sticks today and DH and I are doing Moxibustion this weekend. If baby still does not turn, I am going to a certified hypnotherapist to have some work done. I have a doula friend who does CranioSacral work and she offered to help, along with doing some Rebozo work. I also have a photo of a vertex baby on my fridge. Visualization is very important. I talk to the baby and ask her to turn. After Moxibustion, DH will get down low toward the bottom of my belly with a flashlight held to my abdomen and encourage baby to turn. If all else fails, we will do ECV at 39-40 weeks. My midwife had a client have a successful ECV at 40 with an 11lb baby. So, this is reassuring that it will work out. I am just very anxious. Oh, my midwife will not do breech births and no OBs in the area will, either. So, it would be cesarean for me. It makes me sick just thinking about it.

Breech baby here as well. I plan on giving him another week or two to flip on his own and then I will do some assisting. I have this odd feeling that if I encourage him to flip now that he will flip back around and I may not be able to get him to go back to head down. I am really not worried about it since there is plenty of time (he is due at the end of July) and he is smaller so there is more than enough room for a somersault in there.

My babe is breech too. Flipped 2 weeks ago. My son flipped breech at 34 weeks and then back by 36 but since I am also planning for a homebirth I would prefer a good position now. My midwife also doesn't do breech births and since I am vbac-ing if I have to go to the hospital it would probably be for a caesarean. yuck. I have a chiropractor appt today at noon.

MIne rotates between breech and vertex. I get super excited because i feel hiccups in my vagina and the next day, bam, heads back up. It stays breech more than head down so i think there must be something going on in there that the baby isn't comfortable being head down even though it can get that way. I'm about to start back going to the chiro, I've been doing spinningbabies inversions and pelvic floor releases. I'm planning an HBAC too so I'd really really appreciate it if this baby would get heads down. My doc will deliver breech vaginals but it would have to be in the hospital. Its starting to make me nervous, I'm 33 weeks today.

This babe was breech for a bit but then flipped thankfully 32w4d today. My last pregnancy my son stayed breech until 37 weeks, I was starting to get so worried then I woke up on morning feeling all stretched out and uncomfy and was confirmed he'd flipped!!
post #12 of 43
This is my first and I really have no idea what's going on in there most of the time. If you can't really tell the difference in what kinds of movements are happening, is there any way to know position?? Or do I just have to ask my MW? I feel a lot of pushing/kicking/something about midway up (or a bit higher) and sort of to the left side, does that mean anything? I also feel something vibrating like in my lower abdominal area... Oh, and I can't really reach down to feel if the head is there either.

I'm not worried, just really curious.

That's so weird, because at my last mw appointment, she said the baby was breech and I had JUST felt low hiccups. Maybe she flipped the moment before the midwife came in, or maybe the midwife was wrong. I think I felt her kicking my cervix all the rest of that day, so I think the mw was right. Luckily, she is head down again.

My Little guy is breech and I feel his hiccups in my pelvis. I even seen him hiccuping on the ultrasound in the breech position... I do have an anterior placenta so maybe thats why I only feel it low?

Babies A and B are both still breech. *sigh* Since the very first ultrasound they have been nose to nose in there, and that's stayed consistant throughout the pregnancy. They move around, but always together.

Their new thing is standing on something (?) and pushing thier heads up as far as they can. You see these 2 bumps appear right under my chest, like 1-2 cm tall. Pretty freaky. But I do like being able to pat their heads.

I start chiro next week, so we'll see. I'm C/S bound unless baby A flips. No practitioner willing to do breech birth with twins in a hospital in the state (that I have been able to find - and I've looked.)

- for all of us!

Wow! Looks like there are a lot of us. I think part of what is bothering me is that she keeps turning from breech to transverse. I worryshe is TRYING to turn and can't for some reason. I don't know. Just trying my best to relax since stressing won't help.

I am 32 1/2 weeks pregnant with baby #4 who seems to have just flipped back to head down. But I have dealt a LOT with breech babies! Baby #1 was transverse until around 37 weeks. Baby #2 was breech and though I tried lots to get her to flip my fluid was low-she would be in a footling breech position and when I tried to get her to flip she'd go transverse-but could not get her head all the way down. It was a combination of low fluid and the positioning of her placenta and cord. She was a C/S. Baby #3 was breech until 37 or 38 weeks (according to midwife-personally I thought she flipped earlier but I can't say for sure). And now baby #4 has been playing around with his position still at 32 weeks. One trick I found that seems to get the kiddo moving is sitting in a warm bath and putting an ice pack on the baby's head.

x2 lol

As of yesterday Both little men are Frank Breech.

Both babies look like the 3rd baby on that site.
post #19 of 43
My little one is breech, first breech for me, my two earlier pregnancies had both kids head down literally the whole time, so it does make me a bit anxious though my ob was so casual about it, plenty of time, no worries, chances are she'll turn, but at my next appointment in two weeks if she hasn't turned, I will start trying to encourage her to do it. They won't deliver vaginally breech and after two perfctly healthy easy vaginal deliveries I dread any talk about a c section.

baby A seems to always be vertex, but B likes to flip around a LOT in there. I am hoping B settles to vertex, and then knocks it off. he/she moves around so much I get nauseous or just feel really sore inside.
