Fundus measurements - Page 3
Oh, I forgot to mention I've been doing a lot of the spinning babies exercises daily for a while. Not the breech tilt, but the inversion and the rebozo and some of the other hip opening type ones especially. And trying not to sit in chairs too much. And yoga many days and walking. I think all of these things contribute to feeling better, at least. So I'd recommend them, too. :)
JNajla- how are things?? Something to keep in mind with turning a breech baby with acupuncture/moxa is that this helps move the baby, regardless of position. So be sure to check the position of the baby every day! If Baby turns, but then you keep up the treatment, Baby could turn breech again. It's super powerful stuff, but doesn't take into consideration which direction you want the baby's head/butt to be. Just keep checking! And once that Baby has flipped, stop with the moxa!
Hope things are going well!
I haven't looked into this yet. I will search it today and check it out! Thank you for the advice!
I have an appt with OB on Wed so I'll see what she says about it (delivery plan). I'm glad that he's now frank breech instead of footling breech. I know that I shouldn't be worried about his head, it just really caught me off guard when I was watching the tech do the scan, the head was so oval- almost like a lemon! The previous scans showed a perfectly round little head and this one was so very different, I was worried that something had gone wrong in the past month. Google can be a very bad thing.....
I had my 37 week check-up yesterday. Babe still breech. Fundus measuring at 40 weeks, ultrasound still showing him at the 80%ile for growth so OB is thinking that this is the position that he's going to stay in. She agrees with/ supports my choice to not do manual inversion, says that babes are the way they are for a reason and success rate isn't worth the risks. I'll be scheduled for a c-section at 39+4 (June 17th). If he turns before then, then I will have a vaginal delivery. So, plan A and plan B. Plan C would be if I went into labor still breech, prior to the c-section and need an emergency c-section (hoping that won't happen). Not what I had hoped for, but as long as he's healthy, I'm ok with whatever method gets him into this world in a safe and healthy manner.
Sweet Huck, that is exactly what he's doing right now! Just chillin and sitting in there like a little budha- even the ultrasound tech said that. lol. He was difficult for earlier scans too, where he would curl up in a ball and put his little hands over his face so we didn't get the cute little ultrasound pictures of him. I absolutely can't wait to meet him!
