Breech Baby

I had my Dr. appointment today and she has decided to go into a full Frank Breech position with her booty engaged and feet on either side of her head! There is still a lot of time to turn and the midwife gave me some exercises to do to help with the turning. She also said my baby is enormous so she needs to turn soon, so hopefully by the next appointment she will be in the correct position as the thought of a c-section or a breech delivery really stresses me out. I will be 31 weeks tomorrow and the midwife estimated today that she weighs 5 lbs 13 oz. I just don't see how that is possible and am not quite sure that I believe her as I think that is just way too big and that she must be calculating wrong! We will see in 2 weeks if she has decided to cooperate.

Oh my. I had one of those. He couldn't decide if he liked head up or head down......I finally had something called an ECV (external cephalic version) and we manually flipped the little guy when I was 36 weeks.

Luckily he stayed that way until delivery at 38 weeks.

Here's hoping she flips for you!

Tatum was Frank Breech 21 wks on. They did ECV at 37 wks and she would not budge an inch and it was VERY painful! So then a week later I came in and they did my c-section. Her little legs wanted to stay up over her ears whenever I changed her diaper for the first few weeks. It was too funny! C-sections really aren't that bad. Thank God for good drugs lol.
