Had my u/s today. A is breech, his bum is over my cervix, feet to my right, head to the left. Kinda like he's in a hammock. More transverse than breech imo. B is transverse

I'm 33wks and space is filling up. TURN BABIES TURN!!

I've tried swimming, and inclines and A just will not budge : I only need the presenting baby to be vertex. That it just one baby needs to get into position.

Come on turn turn turn. Head down is the way to go

Have you tried chirpractic? My chiropractor has only had one case that didnt turn and that was his own daughters child.

THIS WEEK... he was thrilled because he got twins to turn with the webster technique. the OB and tech couldnt believe how aligned they were...

last time I saw my mw, she said babe was head down, but I'm sure he's turned around. The kicks, the shapes. I'm with you; turn, turn, turn!

My dh says he's never heard of someone so worried about a baby turning and thinks I should just relax.

I've heard there's no cause for concern until 34 weeks, but it would make sense to get them to turn BEFORE running out of room, wouldn't it?

Just crashing yoru DDC, sorry, hope you don't mind. I'm SlingWearin'Mama's pitbull/stalker type friend.

Anyway, have you seen www.spinningbabies.com There's a small section on twins there. Also, this is interesting http://www.breechbabies.com/ Particularly this http://www.breechbabies.com/janeturning.htm and this http://www.breechbabies.com/twins_with_breech.htm

Wishing you head down for A and B!

Spark and her four firecrackers.

Michele I plan on calling the chiro today I'm almost 34wks now and with all the ptl stuff I get worried about going sooner rather than later.

Spark, thanks for the links. That'll be my thing to do while hanging out today.

Jesamin, I would love a home birth Its just not in the cards

Good luck! My baby was transverse as of 26 weeks, and by 30 weeks, she was head down, posterior facing... (still that way @ 32 weeks) no chiropracty, but I did use optimal fetal positioning as much as possible....

Sending you happy head down vibes!

Turn baby turn! I was going to suggest Webster Technique also....I went in for that regularly at the end of my pregnancy with Carter to try to get him to turn.

Dear babies,

Don't be We promise you won't get : If you don't want your mommy to be Please listen to us and let the baby turning work their magic. Your mommy would really appreciate it if she could get you in the right place very soon

Thank you
