C-section - please help me understand this doctor's thinking. - Page 2

All right, here's where I dig my toe into the dirt and admit that I'm an idiot I saw the chiropractor yesterday, and mentioned this discussion to him, and he clarified that not only did he not advise against Webster for twins, but in fact that's what he has been doing already at our last three visits. I got mixed up because my doctor did indeed say there was a risk of breaking the waters with Webster (although neither the chiropractor nor I can figure out why he thinks that, and the chiro is actually planning to call him to discuss). The midwife and chiro said that doing a VERSION with twins wasn't safe for the same reason. I'm sorry - I'd like to blame this confusion on preggo brain, if you'll all indulge me.

So yesterday I not only had Webster done, but also started acupuncture w/ moxibustion. The babies have been wiggling like crazy ever since, and I'm hopeful that at least Baby A will turn.

Far as I'm concerned you can blame preggo brain and your OB! Does PB get worse with twins? I swear to goodness I cannot remember squat these days.

Got my fingers and toes crossed that baby A obliges and goes head down.

I believe you can blame just about anything on preggo brain! LOL

Good luck with everything! I hope you can get Baby A to turn. Webster worked for me and when the baby turned it was actually quite painful. I had a lot of contractions and some sharp pains in my side. It was really interesting to feel her turning!

Oh, that makes so much more sense.

That is awesome that you've been having the Webster, and now the moxibustion. I have a friend whose baby (singleton) was breech at the same gestation as mine was, and she used the moxibustion with success. Webster was successful for me, and we did a lot of inversion(?) during the same period of time. (Positioning, visualizing, talking to the baby via the pelvis, playing the radio at my pelvis and asking her to turn...)

I know what you mean about the movement. Like a scrabbling, scrambling feeling. I felt our baby was such an earnest team player. And I'm sure that working things out with my pelvis issues and opening up the region for her helped a bunch, too.

So at this point, is "Baby A" just whichever baby gets in position to go first, or is it the same Baby A they've been designating all along? I've wondered about that, since they identified twins and established Twin A/Twin B for measurements. (I still am not sure how they know they have the same one, actually, or if they can know that. We've had two ultrasounds, but they were within three days of each other--just a second higher level u/s to see if there was an amniotic membrane between the twins, since the initial u/s could not detect one.)
