    As some of the December mums know, I had really bad pains in my stomach and back last night, and someone mentioned it might be babba turning.

    Well Leo has been head down since 20 weeks and usually when he gets hiccups i can feel them at the bottom of my bump as he was head down.
    Bit since I woke up today Ive had quite sore ribs and I can feel his hiccups up at the top of my bump.

    Does this mean he has turned and gone breech?? :cry:
    If he is will he turn back again??

    There is still time for him to turn yes. I aint sure how many weeks they say up until but it's around 36 weeks I think? I hope if he has turned, he goes back to being were he should, the little devil. x

    I don't know hun. They'd either try and help him turn -or- talk about a c-section. But I don't know 100% :? I don't want to be wrong and look stupid, lol. I'm sure others will know more about it than me. x

    He could have turned, but you've still got time yet. My baby was thought to be breech at 33+wks and 35+wks so i got sent for a scan last week. Luckily my baby was head down, if she wasn't then i would have had to see a consultant to discuss my options, either have the baby turned or c-section.

    Try not to worry at the moment, difficult i know.

    Yeah about 36 weeks you will be checked and if they think baby is in wrong position you'll get a position scan. id this does confirm breech then you will have options such ECV, which is basically trying to turn the baby from the outside; or you might be able to deliver naturally depending on what sort of breech and what your maternity unit is like; otherwise they'll probably book you for an elective section at about 39 weeks. Obviously if baby turns in the mean time then they'll go back to a natural birth.

    i wish i could answer your question but i have thought the same thing, jaydens been head down for as long as i can remember, and at my last midwife appointment (2 weeks ago) she said that his head was engaging and was at the pelvic brim, and everytime he's had hiccups its been in one place, then when jayden had hiccups the other day it were in a total different place! i wouldnt worry to much though hun, the whole time jaydens been head down and had hiccups ive always felt it above or just around my belly button..so not to sure, sorry i couldnt be more help xxx

    he still has tons of time to move! I know the feeling though, Meredith was head down then turned transverse, then flipped back down again. When she did her big flips I might as well have had a baby elephant in there, it felt like my whole body was shaking and it hurt hah.

    If he does stay breech, they can try to turn him, give you a c-section, and some (not a lot, but some) doctors will still do a breech delivery as long as he isn't footlong.
