My baby's been lying in the breech position for quite a while now, I know there's still plenty of time for her to turn but I was just wondering if she stays in that position and I have to have a C-section do they still leave you until 40 plus weeks or until your natural labor starts or do they tend to book the C section before your due date.
I was given a c section date a week after my due date. I ended up going into labor naturally a week before my due date and she was born via emergency c section because she kicked her little foot through my cervix!!
I have been told I'll get a presentation scan at 36 weeks, and if baby is breech then I'll be booked in for a c-section at 39 weeks - if baby turns between 36 and 39 weeks the section will just be canceled and hopefully I'll go into labour naturally.
last time they didn't confirm H was breech until past 38 weeks so they booked me in for the earliest non-emergency c-section slot which I think ended up being about 39+2.
If you're only 28 weeks now, there's plenty of time for baby to turn, turn back, and turn again so don't be too worried!
I am pretty sure my baby was head down yesterday but has now flipped to breech (judging by where I have been feeling kicks). Wee rascal!
If you end up needing a section, it's not so bad... my last one was a breeze (although of course might not be the case for everyone) and I'm not going to refuse one this time if baby is breech again. VBAC would be my preference though!
