Who else is still transverse/breech? - Page 5

post #81 of 89

Baby turned a few days ago - had some very painful acrobatics going on inside then suddenly the hiccups were down low. Relieved. Baby's hanging out to the side and slightly anterior, but I sometimes feel feet too, so it seems baby likes to do the twist. DD did this too, and came out a model OA baby, so I'm not going to fret about that just yet. I'm just so happy we've got the head down. Though the midwives warned me that I have a "pendulous uterus" which means extra roomy, so that means it is possible for baby to turn back at this point. So I'm under strict orders to not do any kind of inversions at all in the next 6 weeks!

Hi ladies, please keep the conversation going over on the November DDC Social Group!  We will lose all these great threads when this forum closes shortly after the birth of our babies.  You can copy and paste the entire thread into a new post on the social group and pick up where you left off.  And please post new threads on the group so we don't lose them!  Thanks!

Im joining this thread. 

 

Im SUPER stressed about this babies position.  She was head down for 2 months, then a few days ago flipped over to breech.  I thought she had flipped back, but a visit to the chiro today proved that she is actually just keeping her feet higher- she is still very breech, and completely comfortable that way.

 

I had an adjustment today, and another on Wednesday.  The chiropractor i see specializes in pregnancy, and everyone I know swears she if anyone can help get this baby in position its her. 

 

She had a great point, that made me nervous- babies that don't flip, usually don't flip for a reason.  A reason that deserves to be listened to.  It is not a "norm".

 

Its been good food for thought.  But Im really just trying to relax for a few more weeks before I worry.

I might be kind of a dunce asking this question, but when she says  that it's not normal for babies not to flip, does she just mean that when a baby doesn't flip head-down?  Or babies that don't flip around a lot in general?  My baby has been head down for weeks, no flipping, so I'm just curious if you could elaborate.  I'm thinking you mean if they don't flip head-down at all.

I think what she meant was that its not "normal" for babies to not flip into the correct position before delivery time- and that usually if they are breech there is some sort of reason, whether it is one we understand or not.  It made sense to me- just understanding, and thinking about the fact that my body KNOWS what to do, so there must be a reason it is not doing it correctly at this point.  I try to believe that our bodies don't "fail" us even if we sometimes don't understand why things happen.  I think that is the point she as trying to make.

I thought so, but thanks for clarifying!  Interesting way of thinking of it.  I like it :-)

Three weeks with my chiropractor and my babe's head down! Woohoo! I would definitely recommend giving a chiro a try for those stubborn babies.
