<p>I've been in a panic for the past month or so because my baby was breech. Even though everyone said it was too early to worry, I knew it wasn't for me because I've had a stubbornly breech baby before and lost my homebirth because of it.  This pregnancy was following the same pattern: absolutely no deviation from breech position, feet down, head pressing out under my sternum. I started doing all the spinningbabies.com techniques but nothing changed.  The last time I went through this, I did everything including Webster (so the chiropractor said; turns out it wasn't exactly the original technique), hypnotherapy, moxabustion and acupuncture.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>So, I found a chiropractor that has been in practice a long time. He learned the technique from Dr. Webster himself and in 20 years of treating moms, he's only had one baby NOT turn. Anyway, I went to him on Thursday (after a lot of prayer on Wednesday, lol!) and by Friday morning, the baby had moved. I wasn't sure he was head down, but he wasn't breech as before. My whole belly had changed shape and it didn't ache any more. I couldn't feel the baby's constant kicks at the bottom of my uterus any more.  I went back on Monday, too,  and now I can say that <strong>the baby is vertex</strong>!  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm so relieved! I'm going to keep going to this chiropractor through the end of my pregnancy and hopefully avoid some of the shoulder dystocia problems I've had, too.  I'm just<img alt="blueman.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/blueman.gif"><img alt="carrot.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border-top-width:0px;border-right-width:0px;border-bottom-width:0px;border-left-width:0px;"> <img alt="broc1.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/broc1.gif" style="border-top-width:0px;border-right-width:0px;border-bottom-width:0px;border-left-width:0px;"><img alt="love.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/love.gif"></p>

<p>i am feeling worried too. dd1 was a c/s due to her position. she was transverse with one foot down towards my cervix, the other poking out of my left side, and cord wrapped many times around her neck. we tried just about everything (but, not webster...) to get her to turn, but b/c of the cord, she was just stuck in place. my belly was so silly looking- we named it "bump."</p>
<p>i have been trying not to worry about this baby (who is also very-very active and still, at 30 weeks, changing position a lot,) but i am. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>i think that after this week, i will start to think about a chiro. i also have the idea that i need to be swimming- it is a little silly, but b/c she will be an aquarius and the name we have picked means "bright sea," it seems to be a very unscientific "feeling".....or maybe it is just b/c i love to swim. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>anyway- horrah! and lets hope that baby stays put!</p>

<p>Oh yay! I'm so glad for you.<br>
My little Popcorn is just all over the place still, breech, vertex, transverse, and everything in between. So I'm not worrying yet, but I'm keeping this in mind for sure.</p>
