I can tell my baby is still breeched because im feeling her kicks 2-3 inches below my belly button. I know im tall 5'11 and she is long but i saw on the internet babies being delievered with their feet sprawled out or near their head and needing to be straightened. I guess if they are breeched long? Now im panicking.

I'm pretty sure it's still early to have baby turn into the vertex position. I wouldn't worry but you can always talk with you OB about it.

This early, it's absolutely nothing to worry about. Babies can flip up to and even in the early stages of labor. Danny was a long baby for his gestation, and he was doing barrel rolls - breech one week, not the next, then back to breech again - up through 34, 35, 36 weeks. He was in some seriously contorted positions too, and had no issues with his spine or whatever.

Mines still breech too! Little bugger just doesn't want to be upside down lol. The doc told me it's way too early too worry (but of course I'm worried!) she said baby has lots of time/room left to turn. Not sure what you mean about the last part - feet needing to be straightened? Yikes. Google can be downright scary for expectant moms so don't google!! lol. I know they could try and turn the baby manually. Hmm maybe I'll stand on my head and see if that works? lol. Don't worry, our babies are just being stubborn. Chances are they will turn soon. FX for both of us!!

^Google is the worst thing...especially when you are pg. I had my first son diagnosed with all sorts of things while he was still in utero.

Like everyone said your little one is still doing somersaults in there. Sometimes you will feel her low and then 15 minutes later up high. Do not worry about it yet. Your OB will keep an eye on your little one and do whatever is needed if she is indeed breech toward the end.

Oh yeah, baby still has plenty of room in there to turn sumersaults. My fourth son was transverse until 40 weeks when he finally decided to turn head down and stay there.

Google is the devil!

Although I will admit that with some of the serious moving my son has been doing, I'm worried about him turning, since he's been head down since 18 weeks, but I just try to keep it out of my head.

Last time I was at the Dr...like 2 wks ago he was breech and they didnt seem to think that it was a big deal at this time...but it has crossed my mind a time or two as well. So Im trying not to worry too much myself. I guess we still do have awhile haha

Dont worry to much about the feet needing to be straightened I had to straighten my 5 year olds when he was born they turned inward. All ya do is put pressure with your hand and push them out a little and just do that each time you change a diaper it was corrected in a matter of weeks.

Now for the baby being breech I know my 5 year old didnt flip till I was 34 weeks then he went ahead and dropped around the same time ehh I think thats worst then him being in my ribs lol

I feel movement everywhere but especially below my bellybutton and up by my ribs so I'm not sure if he's breech or just long

I felt movement mostly below my belly button and at my latest scan, he was head down so what I was feeling was his head and hands moving around. Goes to show you that they are full of surprises

I wouldn't worry yet. Had a lady tell me that hers flipped when she was in labor. So they can still move, just give it time. I will say, that having to have one turned, or repositioned while in labor is NOT fun. I gained a new respect for all those poor heifers and my mares that we had to reposition the babies of when they were having them. LOL And it's one thing I will be asking them to check with this one when the time comes. Cause DS was head up, and they have to be head down. NOT fun to go through that, even with the epi!

I just had a scan today and baby was head down.. I feel most of my kicks to the left or right of my belly button. At my last scan baby I got to see baby go from head down to head up and I barely felt it.

Like everyone else said its too early to worry. of course its still a fear in the back of my mind also.
Look up the ways you should sit, stand and lay to encourage babies in the right position...it helps me think I'm at least doing what I.can for now. By this i mean sitting without crossing your legs or ankles, stuff like that.
And I do not mean the positions that are intended to flip a baby, such as getting on your hands and knees...its much too early for that to be effective
