<p>Baby A for me is still breech. This baby is using my cervix like a literal chair. The butt is LODGED in there. We're hoping that twin B who is NOW head down (they were both breech) will move the other twin out of the way.</p>

<br><p>I always wonder a little about how this works ... if you show up at the hospital, in labor, but refuse to consent to a c-section, what are they going to do?  They're not going to tie you down to operate, and I have serious doubts about whether they would (or even could, legally) turn you away.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Maybe I'll get to find out, because there is no way I'm scheduling a c-section for breech presentation alone, and last week this babe was still sitting head up (I'm 35 weeks tomorrow).  I feel like s/he has turned, but I've been wrong before, so who knows?</p>

<p>This one is totally footling. I can feel the little foot down by my cervix and a head by my ribs. DD was also footling. Tried everything at about 37 weeks she turned down but then turned back to footling by 38 weeks.  I have not a lot of faith this one will get onto a good position (3 pregnancies three very poorly postioned babies). But I think you still have plenty of time to get your little one on a good spot!</p>

<p>I'm 32 weeks with a baby that is still doing somersaults all the time, and she seems to be head down in the earlier parts of the day and switches to head up in the later parts of the day.  Strange.  The midwives aren't concerned right now, so I am trying not to be either.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>But my former OB, who is no longer practicing in the immediate area, does vaginal breech deliveries, and although it would mean a 2 hour drive, it's something we're willing to consider if necessary and we more or less know he would take us on for delivery last minute.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>FWIW, if I didn't have a resource for a vaginal breech delivery, there's no way I would try and enter a hospital and refuse a c-section.  I want to know that any doc/midwife that is treating me *knows* what they are doing, and so few of them are trained with breech deliveries now, that it's not a risk I am willing to take.</p>
