Well I just moved to a new area therefore I had to find a new doctor. I'm 35 weeks and really didn't want to change doctors during my last trimester but I met the new doctor today he walked in the room and told me he is not going to see me because I have no previous records in the chart. Then he said lets look at the baby really fast we went into the scan room and all he said is your baby is breech get me your records by next week and we will also try to turn her. Also, he said based on her femur lenghth she is measuring 36 weeks im confused .He didn't even listen to her heartbeat all he asked was about my previous pregnancy and said that he could still deliever her vaginally but wants my records. She has already dropped what are the chances she could turn? I was reading online and I really don't want to risk the baby health by delivering vaginally I would prefer a c-section will he listen to me if I tell him I refuse to have a breech baby vaginally. My last baby was 9lbs and was almost a c-section because he was to big I'm completely nervous and scared with all of this since I didn't foresee any of this and ive been contracting already I was hoping that I would get checked to see if I have dialated any but I didn't even get that.

That is very strange. I would look into trying to find another OBGYN before the baby gets here because something about that doctor doesn't seem right...if you can't find another one I would demand a c-section since your previous child was 9 lbs and breech. Hopefully you get something going here soon because you don't have much longer til your baby is due! GL.
How stressful to deal with all of this so late into pregnancy! I agree... try to find a new doctor if you can. A lot of doctors seem more willing to do a c-section than a version (flipping) so I think it would be easy to find someone who would agree to that.
So DH and I decided were going to make the 45 min drive to go to my old OB. This morning I woke up at 5:20am with alot of pain in my upper abdomen and cramps like diaherrea (but i don't have to go) I've been having the crampiness for a few days and was hoping I would get answer yesterday but since I didn't I'm driving to my old OB this morning and if he can't see me I'll just go to L&D these pain are becoming unbearable. I will keep you ladies updated.
