Breech presentation at almost 35 weeks


Does anyone else have a breech baby? My ob is talking about a c-section in case baby doesn't turn on his own and I'm scared! I wanted a natural birth but he said if baby is breech at term he isn't willing to risk it as it is my first baby and so it's a higher risk to attempt a natural birth with baby bottom-first since my pelvis is not 'proven...' Anyone with experience or advice please I'm terrified

hi there,imsorry if im not much help didnt want to read and run... im 35weeks on monday and my little man is also being stubborn and is still breech (with absolutely no intention of moving i dont think). i have spoken to my midwives as i am the same, i would like a natural birth and they all think i will be fine as he still has a while to turn head down, most babies are head down by week 36 but both our little boys seem to be pushing it as far as they can with us dont they? i hope your little boy turns for you and i wouldnt be too worried, they still have a couple of weeks, let ur OB know you are really keen on a natural birth and he may suggest things to help him turn xxxxxxx good luck

Thanks for replying, and good luck to you too xxx I really didn't want a c-section but my ob doesn't seem convinced baby will turn. I hope he does but he's been in the same position for 3 weeks now and I don't think he's moving out of it anytime soon they also estimated baby's weight at 4lbs 6oz, is that small for my dates? Ob wasn't concerned but I am lol. I'm only 4'10" so he said I'm not likely to have a big baby which made me feel better but I still feel like that's a bit too small for 35 weeks!

aww hun fingers crossed your LO's turn.
Try bouncing on your gym balls or on the end of the bed and also getting on all fours if you can and arch you back and then relax and repeat. This is ment to help move baby but not sure if its very reliable. Good luck though

Aw thanks girls I was devastated when the ob said c-section, that was NOT my plan at all but if it means baby will be safer I won't have a choice as that's all I want for him. I will definitely try everything I can to get him to turn. But it just seems hopeless because of how he's been in this one position for so long now... he seems comfy there! I keep feeling movements like he's trying to turn but not getting anywhere iykwim? And for the last few nights after I've gone to bed a few hours later I wake up feeling sick (like I actually want to be sick), and I don't know if that has anything to do with his position or it's just a normal part of things at this stage of the game?

thats the same with me.... i havent had morning sickness since week 17 but over the last week or so i have been waking up in the middle of the night feeling like im going to be sick, ive only actually thrown up twice though. i wonder if its due to there position? im not sure, as of yesterday my boy has been trying to turn i think due to some things im trying but he only makes it half way and then sits transverse and goes back up, spoke to midwife about it and she said that he most likely wont turn. she thinks hes getting fed up with trying lol . well next friday i have a scan to see where he is and then have to decide if i want to try and turn him (i dont and am not going to)

I havent slept a full night in a while, I wake up two or three times a night, but I'll stay in bed so I fall back to sleep. Don't know why I'm waking up either! I can deal with that, it's feeling sick I can't deal with because I'm never *actually* sick even though I want to be. Your LO sounds just like mine-- trying to turn and then giving up. They don't think mine will turn either which is why I'm so scared! I have a scan in 9 days to see if he's still breech and if he is they want to book me in for c-section at 38 weeks. They haven't offered to try and turn him for me, just said straight away a c-section. I wouldn't want them to try and turn him anyway so it looks like I'm just going to have to put up with the hand I've been dealt!

I don't know if this works, but a midwife I saw said that you could try putting a flashlight to the bottom of your bump and the baby might go towards the light (for lack of better wording) and turn. She also said that you could put some soothing music on and put headphones towards the bottom of your bump which will bring the baby's head down there as well.

Again, I have no clue if it actually works but she told me that last time she saw me in case my baby stays breech for when it actually counts.

Hope your baby turns around though!

Im still breach as well. she have been breach since 25 weeks.Consultant also says she is not likely to move as she is streached out.My MS went at 17 weeks, I have also been feeling sick and have been sick. Midwife says they normally book c section for 39 weeks and then scan you on day to see if baby has turned.
