Anybody else have a breech baby right now? - Page 2

post #21 of 43

My little girl is breech too. She was vertex until about 2 weeks ago - now I feel her little head right under my ribs all the time. But the hiccups are down low. I was surprised at first that she was breech, because of the hiccups, but it must just be the way she is positioned. Hoping she turns soon, because with the severe tearing I had last time I really don't want to push out a breech baby... Still time though - I'm still keeping my fingers crossed...

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.
Awww so sweet! It's so cool that you have two little ones in there! I can't imagine.

Mine is breech right now - still pretty flippy though. I'm a bit over 33 weeks. My first turned vertex (and stayed that way) sometime in the 33rd week, so I'm hopeful this one will too. I'm not worried yet, but I am starting to be preoccupied by the baby's position.

The ridiculous thing is that I have a really hard time figuring out position without feeling by my cervix for the head, so I'm beginning to be a compulsive cervix checker.

My baby was breech a couple weeks ago, actually she was transverse and posterior. I had a chiropractic adjustment to get her to turn and she was in position by the next day.

With my last baby he was breech towards the end as well and I again had my chiropractor do her thing and he turned vertex before the end of the day and stayed that way.

I COMPLETELY advocate the use of chiropractic care for turning a breech baby. It works wonders!! Plus completely worth the money which is usually around $50 for some places. I only pay $35 a visit.

Right now though her butt is up in my right side of the ribs and I can barely get comfortable.

Seriously seek out a chiropractor and you won't be disappointed. If anything ask for the Webster's technique, and if you can find a chiro that practices Kinesiology, they tend to be better at turning babies and are more gentle than regular chiropractors.

My 2¢ on the subject.

I went for my first chiro appt yesterday to help with this position thing. She said my lower back is really tight although I don't feel any pain there. She did some hardcore work on my back and it was so tough I had to breathe through it! Baby is still moving between breech and transverse. I will try to get some acupuncture early next week and if the baby is still breech my Dr. will do an external version at 34weeks. I had this with my son and it worked. Good Luck everyone!

At my appt 2 weeks ago (30 weeks) my baby was oblique... his head was at my right hip and his butt was right under my left rib. He still moves and flips a LOT and I have no idea when he'll settle, but I feel his head pushing up at my fundus a lot. I want him to turn! I don't know when DS#1 turned, I was not nearly as in touch with his pregnancy as I am this time. Plus I had an anterior placenta and didn't feel movement nearly as strongly as this time around. My OB did a VE at 35 weeks and couldn't feel the head down low, so I had an US at 36 weeks and he was head down. I'm at 32w3d today so I know this one still has time and room to turn but like the rest of you, I want him to do it sooner rather than later! My midwife will deliver a breech so I know I am not necessarily c-sec bound if he is breech, but I would rather he just flip to vertex now!

My little girl was frank breech for weeks. She finally flipped at 33 weeks with a combination of chiropractics, acupuncture and playing music to my pelvis. My midwife also said that swimming helps a lot and doing headstands in the pool can work wonders. Good luck to y'all.

Ladies....I am a midwife in NH who is also due with my second in July. I have recommended homeopathic Pulsatilla to my mom's with breech babies. One even said the moment she took it she felt significant movement...then the baby was head down after that. Surprisingly, all of our babies will be in the zodiac sign Cancer...which is an ever changing emotional sign. I recommend pulsatilla for these little toddlers too as their moods are ever changing. If anyone is interested in specifics...just pm me!

Natanya- My midwife is planning to give me that at my next appt. if LO hasn't turned yet. It's nice to hear about it from someone else.

I *sort of* feel like baby has moved again but I can't really tell for sure. I never feel like I am very sure about my belly mapping. Usually when I start to feel sure baby will move to some other off position. We have a doula coming on Wednesday to do a birth class- Do you think that maybe she would be able to tell?

I have felt hundreds of women's bellys, and still have a hard time figuring out my own belly. The best way to tell is to make a "C" with your hand...find what you think is either the butt or the head...then gently rock it back and forth...if the whole baby moves...thats the butt...if just the part you are holding is rocking back and forth, then its most likely the head.
Good luck...pulsatilla really works. also try putting something cold on the top part of your belly...baby will try to scoot away from it and head south. Its worth a try.

I am going to get the homeopathy Pulsatilla 200C today , take 3 pellets before bed for 2 nights . If baby doesn't flip, stop. Tomorrow I have an acupuncture appointment. Really hoping baby will flip soon!

I'm not sure........I think this baby is transverse but that is totally a guess. I'm seeing my new care provider in a week and a half and I'm going to see if she can venture a guess about baby's position.

You know when you're just chillin' in your living room, watching Food Network while laying upside down on your ironing board with a rice pack on the bottom of your belly and ice on the upper part? Then you start you wonder if you've completely lost your mind.

Yeah......

That's just one more thing you can tell baby..."Mama loves you so much, she did this crazy thing...."

I did that yesterday!
My guy had been in a great head down position since 22 weeks or so...till all this bedrest....Yesterday I awoke to a very breach baby. By evening I was doing inversions with cold and heat packs. He is head down again but sollidly sunnyside-up Not the most comfortable position, but fun to play with his little knees.

I'm here chillin' with the ice packs too. No Food Network though. I hate food. I am so sick of eating 5 times a day. Nothing is appetizing any more. I've been watching West Wing reruns for my political fix. And crocheting. Ooo - you wanna see what I made? http://www.flickr.com/photos/allthen...7620101900194/
I started out making soakers but I got bored. Almost done with the second octopus.

No inversions for me - I passed out last time I tried. Had my first chiropractor appt. today for Webster. Lots of movement since then but I don't think they've flipped. But really, who the hell knows? With 8 limbs kicking me and 4 hard round objects in there (heads and bums) it's really anyone's guess as to where they are. Ultrasound is on Friday.

Wishing us all flippy babies!!!!!
