My youngest daughter was breech until 33 weeks and she flipped on her own. My dr was hesitant to turn her w/my history of preterm. For little girls there is a fear of hip dysplasia. Kristian had to have an u/s of her hips when she was 2 wks old to rule this out. Up to her 6 mo ck-up, she had to go to a pediatric orthopedist, just to make sure her hips were okay.

"Bree-

Just curious, how do they manually turn the baby?"

They admit you to the hospital, just in case something goes wrong , they can have the baby out in minuties with a c section. They hooked me up on a fetal monitor and started an IV with medicene to relax my uterus. My DR pushed her hands in my stomach around the baby, grabbed him and tried to turn him . She tried 3 times one way and he turned the first time she tried the other way. There was an ultrasound tech there watching to help make sure the cord wasn't being compressed or wrapped around his neck. It was very painful,but very fast. I could tell it was hard work for my DR, because she struggled to turn him and was dripping sweat when she was done. I felt bad because she was due 2 days before me. After it was done I had to stay 1 hour hooked up to a fetal monitor to make sure everything was Ok.Then I was sent home. I was given an US at my dr's twice a week after that and when I was admitted to be induced( for pre-E) to make sure he hadn't turned back.I had him 1 1/2 weeks later vaginally( 1 hour after my DR went on maternity leave.)

My baby has been breech for several weeks. I can feel the position of his body through my belly and can tell by his arm and leg movement too.

If anyone is really worried about having a c-section for a breech baby you should talk with your doctor about it and explore your options. Both my midwife and ob backup deliver breech babies vaginally. For a healthy term baby the risk is very low.

With child number 2 they said she was bottom down at 34 weeks and if she didn't turn I would have to have a c-section. I think that sometimes they are too quick to mention c-sections. It just makes you worry when you really don't need to. By the next appointment at 36 weeks she had turned and stayed down. At 25 weeks though it doesn't really matter where they are, though it's fun to try a guess sometimes!

I had an ultrasound last Saturday and the baby moved her head from my right side, to my left side to downwards... all in a matter of an hour. The u/s tech told me that around 30 weeks the baby will be more in the position that it is going to be for delivery - However, some move right up to the day of. SOOO, I wouldnt worry about it - especially this early.

my baby was breech at the last ultrasound but the way I feel kicks all over the place and the way my stomach moves when the baby does,I know he is making complete turns. My first Ds was breech and had to be turned(ouch!) but because of it, I got ultrasounds at every visit starting around 30 weeks. Having him turned hurt like crazy but was over with so fast.It was worth it to not have the recovery from a c section.

The tech didn't say anything about position at my 20 week but I have only felt kicks really down low...like on my bladder...so I just assumed her feet were down there and thats normal at this stage...but I really have no clue!

Hello, I am jumping in from the May board. I was curious on the difference between breech and transverse. My son is currently breeched at 31 weeks, but I have 5 more weeks before it become an issue. I read the difference on here, thank you.

So do not worry untill you are at least 32-34 weeks and even then, the baby could turn while in labor (so I have heard)

My nurse told me to put head phones on the lower part of my stomach, maybe it will coaks him to go down, lol

Mine was breach at 20 weeks too as the last ultrasound showed and I still dont know if she is still in that standing position. My doctor gave me lots of stress with his comment about that if the baby keeps in that position I will have a surgery but there are still time for the baby to move. Then reading and asking got to make sure that the baby may turn even same day of deliver. Nothing is sure til the very end. I get those low kicks and its not so nice actually is like kicking my bladder and now I have to pee too many time just for 2 drops that feels like a whole tank. But worst of all is that my up belly touches my ribs right after I eat and I dont find any confortable position to be not feeling my ribs piercing my belly.....anyway I dont wanna a surgery neither and I just pray for the baby to move.

kisses

I wouldn't worry yet; I don't think it's quite time for them to turn headdown. I generally have always felt the kicks very, very low. But everytime we see an u/s, he is in a different position, and changes even during the u/s. Usually headdown or sideways. I think right now, there's still plenty of room for them to flip about however they like. And b/c of my experience, I'm not sure that where we feel the kicks necessarily means he is in anyone particular position, or that he'll stay that way. These little ones are rather flexible!! :-)

Mine was breech at my 20 wk u/s, but she's a little marathon swimmer so I'm sure she's been in a million other positions since then.

Just to be on the safe side though, my doctor said they might give me another u/s later on in the game just to make sure she is no longer breech.

Mine's breech at the moment (23 weeks) but I've been told this is not something to worry about at this stage and they are often heads up till later on.

I was just reading an article and it said that most babies don't go head down until 37 weeks so we all have time for them to turn.

I have no idea because the US tech didn't say anything. I have a question about turning the baby manually. I know what manual turning is but, what I am wondering about are the risks. Does anyone know?

my baby was tranverse at 20w and at 22w (head to the right, back out) but i still feel kicks quite low (near the line of my pants which i wear pretty low). i guess he/she could go either way from transverse.

Mine was breech at the 20 week U/S, and at my last appt my midwife thought he felt transverse-head tothe left. I really want to deliver naturally, so I hope he starts that turning soon!!

mine's been breach at every u/s so far, all 3 of them, plus I am also feeling the very low kicks. the u/s tech and my dr both said not to worry about it until later, it could just be a fluke incident that everytime i have an u/s it's in that position. so we'll see.....

at my 22 week u/s the baby was left, right, upside down and breech??? The poor tech couldn't get the baby to stop flipping over, on the video they gave us it looks like the baby is break dancing. I don't think you have to worry until after 34 weeks.

baby was tranverse two weeks ago at the last sonogram... he may as well enjoy the space while he can because i know that it is going to become pretty tight in there!!!
so i am not worried... we'll see at 32+ weeks what is his position.

I am not worried. As I stated before, I am just wondering. I know this is a common thing because the baby does still have room to move around. The doctor says that she will do an ultrasound at 36 weeks.

Hi Stephanie, is that something you should get worried about when you are just 20 weeks? Here in Sweden, the midwife starts checking the position around week 34 or so. I feel kicks everywhere, I feel that the baby is never in the same position. I think the baby is still small and has room to move around, don't you think?

Hugs

Mine was on Monday when we had an ultrasound, but I don't know whether he still is or not, either. That day, I did feel lots of little wiggles and kicks down low, which would make sense, since his legs were kind of sideways & down.

edit: what LoJohnson said.

I am just wondering. My baby is breach and has been since at least 20 weeks. I feel the kicks real low. But the doctor also told me the baby is breach. She said we are not going to worry about it until 36 weeks. If the baby is still breach, they will try to turn the baby before 40 weeks. Nothing to worry about though. Anybody else breach or transverse and where do you feel the kicks if you are breach or transverse?
