I just got back from an appt (36 w 5 d) where we found that Baby B has flipped from breech to vertex! I COULD NOT believe it. He's been breech for MONTHS and somehow he managed to flip just in the last week without me even noticing it.

My OB and a couple of her partners do breech extractions but I've still been worried about the possibility of her not making it to the hospital or someone less experienced being on call. 2 vertex deliveries would be soooo much less stressful.

Now I just hope he stays that way. No more acrobatics please guys!

Yay, great news!!

My OB told me over and over that there was just no room for a breech twin to flip past 28 weeks. My baby A flipped to vertex at 36 weeks.
