We are measuring a week ahead....... And we are breech... So we have been everything; transverse, head down, and now breech.
Anybody have any suggestions to get him to flip? I heard the flashlight trick, music (currently trying it now... He gets very active with music.. So I placed the speakers very low... Worth a try) I will be looking into positions to try..
What have you tried? And did it work?
Love the replies you've gotten ... I wouldn't worry either.. But if you want to feel like you are doing something a friend just told me that she's been lying on her back upside down on an inverted ironing board .. (I think spinning baby mentions this position) .. She does it for like10-15 min twice a day... But honestly you've got time

I had a breech baby and ended up having a csection. The doc would have tried to flip her but I am so glad we didn't go that way. She stayed breech because the cord was around her neck. I say let him/her flip on its own if it is going to..Just my experience of course..
My second daughter was breech. The doctor flipped her but not till something like 35/36 weeks I think, maybe 37. I had to stay in the hospital for baby to be monitered afterwards for a couple hours. There is some risk to having the baby flipped but on the other hand if baby doesn't flip on it's own then you have to have a c-section which also carries risks.
I was told up to 38 weeks they can still flip themselves. However, as far as advice I was told to let gravity "do the job." I haven't looked through spinning babies, myself. I hope little one turns for you eventually
