Baby was breech at 19wk u/s, but at today's cervical check baby had flipped, was still breech 2 days ago so very excited! I am 23 1/2 wks. My son went head down at this time last preg and stayed that way, so this one might to. Before now this baby was flipping around a ton and was transverse for a bit. My mw say they can;t confirm position till 28 wks by touch.
What position is your baby in now? - Page 3
Last night he was vertical and something pointy was sticking up above my belly button. Do you supposed that was his butt or a foot or heel as opposed to an elbow or hand?
My baby is now flip-flopping between transverse and head down. He/she is moving a lot! Yesterday when the baby was transverse, I felt a distinct group of movements that I am sure was the baby trying to stretch out: I felt two legs kicking strongly on the far left side to the outside, and two arms moving on the far right side to the outside, like the baby was trying to make more room and stretch out flat horizontally. I guess he/she is getting crowded now.
Me either. Sometimes he feels closer to the surface, like last night but at nearly 25 weeks, I still can't tell up from down. My MW said it's pretty common till about 28-32 wks depending.
At my 28 wk. appt. last week baby was breech. Totally unsure of baby's position on my own, but I'd venture that s/he goes back and forth between transverse and breech. Sometimes the baby definitely feels transverse to me. My 3rd baby was breech until 35 weeks, so I'm not too concerned. And I'll push for a vaginal homebirth even if baby continues to remain breech. If they chose to hospital transfer me (and they could for that, but it's not an automatic call, it's up to their discretion), I have no idea if the hospitals/dr's around here are open to attempting vaginal breech deliveries. I sure hope so.
One of the nice things about being at a MTF (if that's where you would be) is that they can't refuse treatment. If you say you want a vag breech birth, they have to let you try. Now, whether or not you'd really want to do that if there's no one qualified to attend you is another story.
Last week I was convinced my baby was transverse...whenever I felt movement it would be at my sides, and I'd feel it on both sides simultaneously - as if baby is stretched out and wiggling hands and feet at the same time.
However, this week, when I feel movement, I feel it very high under my ribs and very low in my pelvis... indication that baby has turned to a vertical position?
At 30 weeks baby is breech. My other children were breech until the last few weeks. This time it doesn't matter though because I have a planned c-section. Since she turned I feel less pressure on my bladder which is nice! Down side is when she stretches she goes into my rib and when she kicks she kicks my bladder. She likes to stretch her back out and I can see my belly grow when she does.
We think our baby is head down now... though if I had to guess, I'm thinking he/she is posterior - I feel most of the movements in my upper belly, just under my rib cage, but as all the movements seem to be felt on my front side, I have a feeling baby's back is toward my back. I still feel some *big* cartwheeling movements now and then, so I guess there's still time for baby to move all he/she wants!
