How many weeks are you? Some babies are breech right up until the end of pregnancy, then they turn by themselves. Sometimes the doctors can turn them.

hi sterlids...well my son was bron via c-section because he was breech and also because i was low on amniotic fluid...but what was your question im sorry, LOL. Are you asking if it's uncomfortable or ???
Anyway, to me it was totally cool, i never had any sorts of pain thoroughout my pregnancy, no back pain, nothing. he was pretty small, maybe that's why. But ask me ask me...i'll let you know.

Sterlids, I have had 4 cousins pregnant and all have given birth here in 2006, well the last one, her baby girl was breeched the doctor turned her and they schedule a normal delivery, then she turned again and to say the least they had to do a C section. The little one turned and they had no choice but do it that way..

i am 32.5 weeks. i just don't want him to be breech coz i really don't want a c-section. i was just asking if anyone had been through this and what the end result was. i think he is back to his normal head down position now. it was just really painful and i hope he doesn't turn.

I had the exact same problem last night. I asked my ob at my last visit and she said that a baby could stay breech right up til delivery. I dont have any previous experience with this but at least you know youre not alone.

He still has time to turn but yes my kenzie was breech and refused to turn. she sat straight up and down indian style for the last 3 months!

Hi. I just had my little guy on the 12th. I was induced and then ended up having a c section because I didn;t progress, but the reason I was induced (he was head down at the time...otherwise it would be a c section) was because he kept on flipping. He would be breech one moment, and head down the next. You don't have to worry about a breech baby until 36 or 37 weeks. A c section is usually a last resort. They turned my little one 3 times before they decided to just get him out.

thanks guys, i believe little man has been transverse all day. got another question, doesn't it hurt when they turn the baby?

oh and does anyone have any other remedies to get him to move besides visulization and cat stretches? it is so umcomfortable and i hope he doesn't stay like this until the end. my mom said my brother did this for a few weeks near the end.

Honestly, the doctors turning the baby was extremely painful for me. It got worse everytime they did it b/c the baby gets bigger. Mine was transverse too. That is why I was induced b/c with a transverse baby if your water breaks the cord could come first because there is no other presenting part. I am very glad that I ended up having a c section. I was very nervous, but I have recovered fairly well. After 6 days I no longer had any pain.
As for turning him yourself, there really isn't a real reason to right now. You are only 32 weeks and I wasn;t told to start until 35 weeks because the baby still flips around a lot...it's not all that big yet and still has lots of room to move. I laid with my hips elevated, was told to lay on my left side (that was the way he travelled) and apply a little pressure. You have to be sure that your baby is breech though, or you could harm him trying these excercises. I hope that some of this helps.

thank you it does. and i won't be trying to make him move too much. all i really do is just gently on him when he is making me super uncomfortable. my next u/s is next tuesday and i know he can do many flips between now and then but hopefully he will be back to his comfy head down position. he has been head down at every u/s since 21 weeks.
