don't give up hope yet..... it was about that time that my twins turned. they were breech/transverse and every other possible combo other than something for a happy vag birth.
i did let go--- accepted that whatever was going to happen would happen.... i talked to my babies alot and told them they knew the best way to come (but that mama of course would get a c if they needed it but that head down was a better way most of the time). i also did ALOT of walking. we went to busch gardens and walking up all of those hills (yes i did think i might put myself into labor...wooops, but it didnt happen) i think did the trick for baby a- she flipped to vertex. baby b was still flippy but my doc didnt care what b was. she did eventually turn to vertex too. of course after a came out, b turned again to transverse - but my ob - who sounds alot like yours (the breech guy..lol) turned her easily and out she came.... so i just wanted to give you a glimmer of hope.
as far as the breech a - i know its been done and probably gone great, but i had already personally decided that if a was breech - she was telling me something. i also had a prior c/s so this was a vbac for twins. i read ALL of the literature out there and most of it did not support a breech a. however, that was me... i was already not exactly the best candidate for a vag birth anyhow. so hang in there...trust your babes to know the best way to come. i know for me once i let it all go, it seemed to all fall into place.

butt first/slouchy transverse position.
This totally describes my baby A :)
I can feel their heads and they're always in the same place (confirmed by ultrasound to be head, but it just confirmed what I knew) All the kicks I feel are down low. All the "alien belly" movement is below my belly button. I get occasional bumps up high, but not the big limb movement.
