Yeah, if you could get her bum down in there settled, then you might even have a chance at delivering her breech vaginally... but you're right, you've got to weigh the chances of something settling in there before her bum does (or her head!)
I would deliver a breech at home with a midwife, however the footling is a hard hurdle to go over, and that would definately be hospital for me, and almost certainly a planned c-section. But like I said, with a non-footling breech, I would feel comfortable delivering vaginally, and most likely at home, after having spent lots of time reading up on different techniques, etc. But it all goes out the window with footling and the chances of cord prolapse.
I crochet... but even though I've been doing it for years, It's still primitive. They always look wonderful while in progress, but once finished I hold them up, and they always look so uneven and amateur. lol. It doesn't really matter, as once it's on the baby, it will provide warmth, which is what matters... and you probably won't be able to see much of the flaws... And I can't seem to do booties or hats. They just are never shaped or sized properly, no matter what I do!
Yes, it was definately a hold your breath moment when she made it clear she thought there were twins in there, and such a relief when there was just one. And so nice to be able to take a quick peek! It's bad now though because we both have boy in our minds, and we're going to be surprised now if it's a girl. Not disappointed, but just having to reframe your mind, you know?
I don't have any friends around who have children, only aquaintances and family members. Our family are all pretty darn mainstream. I got into a semi fight a few weeks ago with my SIL and BIL about the safety of homebirth, as well as the whole issue of GBS, and how it's funny that it's so much less common everyone BUT the states and Canada. It gives me an idea of what the future holds for us. It drives me nuts though when people argue about things that they obviously haven't researched outside of reading what to expect.
