I am not stressed yet, but I have no idea what the "Policy" is at my OB office.
I would prefer to just let things go and there is NO WAY IN HELL I am going to schedule a cesarean.
I am thinking I need to do some reading before my appointment on Wednesday to be able to have a conversation with the OB.
I never even considered this before.....
I think there is plenty of time for him to turn and the U/S tech said there was plenty of fluid for him to move around in. I just want to be prepared, when I go to my appointment and they read the U/S report.
At least my cervix is still long and the stitch is holding great.
I can't believe that they are going to take it out in a little more than 3 weeks!
I am sooo not ready yet!!!
I think by 34 to 35 weeks if my babe was breech I would try doing some different positions to get him to turn. Maybe checking into a chiropractor who knows the Webster technique.
My second baby also went breech not long before her due date, and I let myself be talked/bullied into a scheduled section two days later. Ever since, I've wished I stood my ground and at least waited for labour to see what would happen.

Now as for why it matters there are a few issues. You're at a great risk of cord prolapse. If you were in preterm labor your cervix might not have to dilate fully to deliver the body and then wouldn't be sufficiently dilated to deliver the head. For a woman without a tested pelvis the pelvis might not be wide enough to deliver the head. It all comes down to malpractice issues as far as I can tell. In my case having had three big babies I'd be hard pressed to accept a section due to breech positioning. I'd definitely try all the tricks I could including an external version. But there's still plenty of time for your baby to flip so keep thinking positive thoughts!
