cross posted in birth & beyond...I've had 1 sono at 20 weeks where everything checked out ok. I'm now 36 weeks and unfortunately I can tell the baby is still flipping from time to time (my biggest indicator is that I can feel hiccups above my belly button or in my pelvic area). The mw wants me to have a sono to figure out for sure where baby is--I think baby was possibly sideways at the appt today. The mw thought possibly breach but nothing definite and said b/c I can tell the baby is still flipping from time to time, that a sono can determine position accurately, then if she is head down I can get a belly binder to keep her in place until I go into labor. If she's not head down I'd head to see someone to do external manipulation then use the belly binder to keep her in place. My previous 3 babies all averaged around 8 lbs and I guess the room in my womb is still stretching out well b/c of the previous pregnancies so this baby isn't getting locked in to a good head down position.
I had been seeing a chiropractor but I didn't get a chance to go the last few weeks. I went back today and am going tomorrow morning too, and the chiro is certified in webster technique so I'm hoping it will help. He wants to see me 3x/week. In the meantime, I need to figure out if I am going to get the second sono or not. I would prefer not to.
Does anyone have any experience with this and can share? Thank you!
