I have read some of your post's saying your baby is breech. I always thought the baby just moved all around, flipping and turning all over the place. Should be the baby already be head down and stay that way?

No the baby can be in any position right now. Breech (either footling or transverse) isn't important until the last few weeks. Most babies even change the day labor starts.

That is what I as thinking. I guess they are just noting the position of the baby.
I tend to read into things too much.

It's not important right now. The baby is still small enough to move all around. As the baby gets bigger and has less room to move than it becomes important.

Definitely not important. Breech isn't really a concern until the last few weeks but babies flip even in labor.

I have a question about this...I am not allowed to deliver in the birth center if I'm breech. So if it can flip during labor, it doesn't really matter then huh? I'd still be stuck at the hospital?

I'm not sure about the birth center rules, but delivering a baby in breech can be extremely difficult if not dangerous for the mother. The baby can flip head down in labor and turn sunny side up if s/he likes (ouch!!) But usually going into labor you will have enough time to see if the baby will flip before you head to the birthing center or not.

Can the mom tell if the baby has flipped before going to the birth center?

Sometimes you will feel the baby flip when you are that close to delivery, but sometimes not. The birth center can check you though when you come in. Usually if the baby is presenting breech at 35 weeks that is the point to start trying things to get the baby to flip. Spinning Babies has great info for getting baby to flip.

At my 20 week u/s baby was breech, but I had one yesterday and baby was head down. They are all over the place at this stage.

A lot of hospitals automatically advise c-sections for breech babies now, especially if you are a first time mom and don't have a tested pelvis yet. Many doctors are no longer trained in how to vaginally deliver a breech baby these days anyway. My midwives will deliver breech babies and my OB also said that if I wanted a hospital delivery they would deliver a breech baby vaginally for me. The only reason they would for me is because my labor with Lily was fast for a first timer (under 7 hours) and no complications, so I'm considered a good bet for a good breech delivery.
