Still breech at 30 weeks. - Page 2

post #21 of 22

Due Date crashing with a happy story.

 

My DS2 was breech from well, a long time and still breech at 36 weeks after trying everything on spinning babies. Unfortunately, my midwives could not legally deliver a documented breech baby. He was frank breech and I had already had two successful totally natural births- one with the same mw group. After my research I decided there was no way I was going to have a c/s just because he was breech, but since I didn't have maternity coverage (we paid oop for the birth) I had no idea what I was going to do. Insurance had to cover a c/s, but wouldn't cover the two Drs within a two hour drive that I'd heard would do vaginal breech. We were considering going out of state (but I have fast labors) or trying to find another independent mw that would try it. I went to the chiro the day before my 37 week appt as a last ditch effort and he turned that night- at 37 weeks. He flipped again 5 days later, but I had a follow up with the chiro and he flipped back vertex and stayed that way for 5 more days till he was born. Now, I'm quite small, but thankfully he was my smallest by a lb at 6#7oz.

 

So, babies can turn till the very end. I literally had two painful contractions and his birth was very easy, so I always said he made up for all the trouble he caused.

I'm at 36w, 1 day and was still breech today ... until my MW did the manual baby moving thing and boy was that intense. It was hard for her to move baby, keep baby head down, but finally, it worked. So then I walked a whole bunch. Hopefully baby stays put! Manual manipulation of the uterus/baby like that is crazy! I feel sore and tired now but sorta afraid to lay down :) Want this lil one to get cozy and used to being head down :)
