Who else is still transverse/breech? - Page 3

post #41 of 89

I'm 28 weeks and baby is head down, I think he's been that way for a couple weeks now. Head down, back to the right, and feet to the left. I can tell where his feet are because every time I lay on my left side I can feel him kicking the bed a whole bunch :) I thought he might be breech but my midwife said that was just hand movement.

I will just tell them if they dont let me TRY, I will give birth in the parking lot and scream things that make them all look foolish.  Haha.  Just wait until you see the security camera footage on CNN.

blush.gif Oh my! hahaha That would be great! This baby's dad kept insisting that I'd birth in a hospital, and I told him that I'd lock myself in the bathroom and birth in the tub by myself if he tried to get me to go. That would have been quite the scene, eh?

Good news- my baby was head down today.  Perfect LOA position.  Not that he'll stay there, but it reassured me that he knows how to get there :-)  I think he flipped last night.  Ouch!

Fingers x'd that they will STAY head down!

My LO is still unstable, between breech and transverse. I have a bicornuate uterus, though, so it is important for me to get her head down sooner rather than later, as she'll have less room to turn

My baby has been head down the last few days too (mostly loa).  I think that we're nearing the end of the somersaults.  :)

My doctor confirmed for me today (29 weeks) that mine is most definitely transverse. He's been sitting transverse pretty much for my whole pregnancy so far. Hope he turns soon! My doctor keeps reassuring me that I don't have to worry about it for a few more weeks, but it's getting uncomfortable when he decides he's going to stretch out and I get this oblong baby lump sticking out both sides of my tummy!

My midwives keep palpating a transverse presentation. I figure if I get her to turn before full term, she'll just turn right back, so trying not to trip about it. Lately I have felt a more diagonal presentaiton, but can't tell head from butt. My first was occipital, but... anterior? He was face up, which made his head unable to sqish together properly and gave me a huge laceration. So i'm hoping for not that.

This baby was head down at my last midwives appointment at 27 weeks, though in the last week its been doing all kinds of acrobatics and I'm pretty sure was breech and transverse a few times. I'm not that good with palpation, but I can tell because of where I can feel the hiccups. I'm 30 weeks now, and I'm pretty sure baby is settled back into a cephalic presentation, possibly ROA. I think I can feel the bum on my upper left side, anyway, and usually no direct frontal kicks, so I'm assuming baby is kicking my back and I can't feel it. So I'm not too worried - it seems to me Tooey prefers to be head-down, and will settle back there after some experimentation.

 

With my first, DD was ALWAYS cephalic, at least as long as I was palpated to tell such things. So this flipping around is strange to me, but I'm not concerned.

My babe is 31 weeks and still doing flips.  She usually only flips between head-down and transverse but she's been breech twice in the past week.  Definitely not my favorite position!!!!

post #52 of 89

Mine seems to like doing flips this last week as well. It's a bit nerve-wracking when I am considering UC, but I'm sure he'll decide head down is best.

post #53 of 89

Mine's still breech. :)

post #54 of 89

My baby has flipped a few times in the last week, but I THINK that she's finally settled in head-down.  :)

post #55 of 89

I am pretty sure I just felt the baby's head at my ribs, but most of the time I'm sure I feel knees up there. I get movement all over right now and don't expect them to be head down just yet (I'm 30 weeks). I am going to the chiropractor regularly, and don't anticipate it being an issue. I will ask the doctor to palpate at my next appointment just out of curiousity. Although he will gladly attend breech births, so no big deal.

It's way too early to worry about positioning, imo.  I'm doing yoga and pilates regularly and I'm confident she will end up in a great position when she starts to settle down a little.  For the time being, let her squirm and flip around to her heart's content. :)



 

I agree. I'm a first time mother, but I wouldn't think I should be worried about this right now. I think my baby is transverse right now, but like your wee girl, mine also seems to be all over the show. Nothing like kickboxing at 3am!

post #57 of 89

Frank breech at 30 weeks as of now and been so for a couple weeks without much flipping positions. I'm slightly nervous I won't lie. Usually my boys are head down by thirty and quite content staying there.. See my midwife again today just so I can talk it all out..

 

 

post #58 of 89

I don't know what position he's in anymore, I just pray that when I go into labor, he's NOT breech. That's my worst fear.

post #59 of 89


Just out of curiosity, what would you do, Becky?  Do you have a midwife available to attend just in case?

We are head down now too.  Breech used to be a big fear of mine, but now my back up hospital is doing vaginal breech births in some circumstances.
