I am 38 weeks and babe turned breech (don't ask me how... I kinda missed it when it happened?)<br>
now, I know what the methods are... I just need good positive thoughts and success stories from other mamas who turned their breeches around! What worked for you? How did it feel? Did you notice them turning?<br><br>
Thanks in advance<br>

Mine turned at the last minute. She had been breech for most of my pregnancy and I fully expected to birth her breech.<br><br>
She turned about 5 hours before labor began. She turned, I felt it, and then my water broke. 5 hours later, labor began, and I had a 1.5-2 hour labor & birthed her. She was 13.0 pounds.<br><br>
Note ~ I did absolutely nothing to try to turn her. I felt very strongly that she would be born the way she was supposed to be. I kept my body in good positions throughout my pregnancy, and that was it.<br><br>
After she was born I noted that her cord was approximately 12 inches long and wrapped around her neck once. I think there was a reason she waited until the last minute to turn.<br><br>
I trusted her.

My own experience with DS2:<br>
He moved and turned so much that the mw's I had were never 100% sure just what he was doing. With DS1 I could always kind of tell how he was in there. No clue with DS2. That baby was just all over the place. I was lucky enough to have a mw, who said she didn't care how he got out of me, as long as it was ok by me.<br>
It was. They did suggest spinningbabies for good positioning and we talked about a few things I could do, but since he kept turning, we decided to not do anything. I didn't want to make him turn back breech on accident.<br>
So in the end he was born head first and anterior.<br><br>
If you can have the baby breech without any problems from careproviders or yourself (UC forum afterall), I'd suggest doing NOTHING. Maybe check out spinningbabies, other than that, relax and trust yourself and your body.<br><br>
Also, my doula kept telling me that breech babies are smarter <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> She was a breech baby herself. Why would you not want a smart baby? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Breech: some things to try are chiro, (Webster technique) and moxibustion. Keep the faith that this baby knows what it's doing!<br><br>
Like PP's said, check out spinningbabies.com as well for more ideas. Keeping everything crossed for you!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/fingersx.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="fingersx">:
