Well, I went in for my ultrasound today and I was right!! Her head is in my ribs and her bum is directly on my cervix. Well? The tech said they won't let me go much more longer than 38 weeks which means I will get a baby by next week! Part of me is sad and worried, but part of me just feels like this is what it is and we will just make the best of it. I find out tomorrow exactly what we are going to do. Weird that after 9 kids this is my first breech baby. Little stinker! Oh and she is measuring 7 and a half pounds riht now....big kiddo!

Eek.. well at least you know and can act accordingly. Why is it so bad to deliver a breech baby naturally? Most of the breech births I've read here are C-sections.

So are you having a c-section or are they going to try and flip the baby? And, that is a big baby! Yay for another rainbow baby!

Will they try an inversion before they do a c section?
I am not sure the exact reason I know that I have never heard of a dr delivering a breach baby. I think it has to do with risks associated with breach delivery. But honestly would have to google to be sure.
How exciting you are almost done . Can't wait to hear all about it.

Found this...
Oh and yes I spelled breech wrong in my first post LOL.
A vaginal birth may still be possible even with a breech baby. Much depends on the baby's position. A frank breech, in which the baby's legs are straight up in front of the body with the feet near the face, can sometimes be delivered vaginally. If the baby is in a footling position (one or both feet pointing down) or is a complete breech (legs folded at the knees and the feet near the buttocks - sitting tailor style), a vaginal delivery is usually impossible.

To attempt a vaginal delivery, the breech baby must be full-term, but not too big to fit through your pelvis. The baby will be carefully monitored through labor and must show no signs of distress. If your doctor or midwife determines the baby cannot deliver properly, you will be taken into surgery for a cesarean birth. A c-section might not be the way you envisioned giving birth, but it can ensure both you and your baby survive his or her insistence on coming feet-first.

I was told today that they dont do inversions at the hospital I go to. I am ok with that, those scare me. A lot of risk associated with them. As for me delivering breech....they wouldnt want to do that since my last two babies had shoulder distosia. They have a hard time coming out...so...if she is still breech she will be c section. I am just gonna have to be ok with it and be grateful that I got my sweet baby no matter how she comes into the world!

that's the spirit Dreamer! She may flip yet, though. Whatever happens, you've got a new baby soon!!

Thanks for the info, Jess! Very intriguing.

There are still some exercises you can try to get her to move. I'm with you- I wouldn't try an actual manual inversion, either- too much risk of fetal distress and tangling the cord. The daily exercises are more gentle. This website describes some techniques you can try at home:

I have had two external cephalic versions and while they were uncomfortable I would have another one in the future if needed to avoid a c-section. I would also be willing to birth a breech baby vaginally, but only if I had a skilled provider. If I had a history of dystocia I wouldn't risk it, but since my first VBAC was a baby with a huge noggin I know my pelvis is adequate to birth a baby in the breech position.


Spinning babies is a great site. I also REALLY like this one: Turning A Breech Baby: Here are 17 Ways to turn a breech baby! | Suite101.com With my fourth baby I used these techniques and they helped her turn. The inversions on here and spinningbabies are very safe. You can also try seeing a chiropractor that is trained in either the Webster or Bagnell technique to encourage her to turn. A final option is to take homeopathic pulsatilla, it helps to get the uterus to relax and allow the baby to flip.

With as many pregnancies as you have been through, it is possible that she will flip on her own, without assistance AFTER the start of labor. Do you plan to schedule the c-section or wait to go into labor and then go in for the surgery? This would give you a chance for a vaginal birth if she turns at the last minute.

My Gabriella was breech and I did have a c section after 2 very painful attempts to turn her. The baby I'm carrying now is transverse and I don't see this baby flipping either.

I'm glad you are at peace with a c section, I healed quite quickly. I know what our bodies are capable of but sometimes we need this medical intervention.

There is no scientific proof that anything on spinning babies actually works and the same for the chiropractor. I've seen my fair share of those that tried and didn't work.

DD was also breech and I had her by c-section at 38 weeks, she was also big at 7lbs 13oz. I think when they are that big there just isn't room for them to flip at this point, but maybe she will. Good luck with everything!

DD was breech at my 36 week appointment, but by the next week she was head down and engaged! It's amazing how fast they can move!

My cousin just had twins and the 2nd baby to come out had shoulder dystocia and they had to push his arm back in and turn him around to birth him breech! But he came out easy afterwards (6lbs 5.5oz).

Little stinker! She's surely doing things her way. I hope that she turns for you.

My son Elijah was breech and they tried turning him at 36 wks.. It was extremely painful, and he went into distress... Luckily he bounced back and I avoided and emergency csection, but we just scheduled a csection, and he is just fine and I healed quickly.. I am having a repeat csection with this one even though he is head down just becuase it is the safest route for me to take.. Good luck Julie.. So exciting to see our rainbow babies will be here so soon..

You never know, she may still decide to flip! My sister's 4th child flipped at 38 weeks exactly...he had the room so he did it. Either way, hooray for almost being ready to meet her! How exciting!

yay for baby getting here soon!! I also would not want to have my baby try and be flipped...usually they are breech for a reason. I know a lady who they flipped her baby and the baby dies because the cord was wrapped around her neck when they did so (which is why the baby didn't turn the way she was supposed to in the first place!!) I hope your c/s goes well

Well, I have decided to just go with the c section if she is still breech. I find out tomorrow morning with my new doc what we are doing!
