NGL, I've been really anxious for about the last 4 days that baby has flipped to breech. I KNOW for a fact this has everything to do with my general anxiety (OMG! I'm REALLY having a baby! Soon!)-- though I have also had some signs... Or you could argue I've felt them, even though I know I am not at all an expert and it could very easily be in my head.
So, last check, a few weeks ago, Buko was vertex. Around Thursday (a day short of 36w), Buko was rolling up a storm-- like crazytime-- and I think I felt two distinct big lumps on either side of my belly-- like maybe s/he went transverse. Later, especially Friday night/early Saturday, I felt things like hiccups above my bellybutton (I had only really ever felt them near my cervix before) and just different/less movement. Of course, now is the time s/he would start "running out of room" to move as much, anyway. But I really worked myself up about it-- my MWs won't do a breech HB, I won't see them for palpation until close to 37w (2 days from now), and I just don't like to think about the possibilities. Even an ECV or a vaginal breech birth in the hospital (possible options-- the only ones around here) don't sound good to me. I know THAT is just me being a spoiled brat (not wanting a C/S is more legit, IMO), but I just don't want to deal with those things. I will go to The Farm and camp out at Ina May's house if I have to (I think they no longer officially take women so late in pregnancy)-- though I don't want to do that (or go out of state) either. But, really... I'm crazy. I mean, I could be right (though since yesterday, I am back to feeling hiccups in my cervix, etc.-- at the same time, I woke up with sore ribs and was afraid it was d/t a head up there)-- but what the heck do I know? Most likely it's just anxiety-- I get like this once every month or two-- all gloom and doom, perseverating. It's a combination of my general anxiety issues and having had that m/c with my first pregnancy (and so recently). Granted, it's much less anxiety and making myself crazy than I do when not preggo, LOL, and much less than I expected I'd feel, and I work it out within a couple of days... And DH is super-supportive about hearing me out and validating my feelings.
Only a day and a half until I see my MWs again. I plan on not saying anything before they palpate, lest I bias them. After (if) they say baby is vertex, I might say something about my concerns-- because if baby could possibly be breech, I want to know ASAP so I can possibly help him/her turn, start thinking about alternate plans, etc. (I don't want to try any techniques unless my MWs really think baby is breech, lest I mess with what might actually be a good position. BTW, baby was somewhat posterior @ 32-33 weeks, so maybe what's been happening is more a move to anterior-- a gal can hope!)
I just... IDK. I feel like it could go either way, even though (I think?) it's not common for a previously vertex baby to turn to breech @ 36 weeks.
Ack. Making myself crazy.
