All things I'm going to be talking to my doctor about on Monday, but I bet we don't truly worry until 36-37 weeks.
The cord getting twisted and possibly ripping my anterior placenta is what concerns me the most.

They will do an ultrasound before the attempt to determine these things. It also helps if your doctor has done many of them before and is skilled at doing so. My OB's method involves some kind of anesthetic because he will do a c-section right away if necessary if it fails, so they have you 'c-section ready' (which is fine, since that's what you would need anyway if it didn't work).

Did you try spinning babies? Peppermint oil, cold, and music were what flipped Isabel.
The only thing I haven't tried is the peppermint do you use it?

I've done a ton ofswimming, hot/cold packs, music, massage, pretty much standing on my head lol. I've done these things multiple times and nothing is working.
