    :hugs: I know its a long shot but have you tried sitting backwards on a dining chair? This spun my lo round for me (last pregnancy)!!!

    a picture i found on google - to demonstrate lol exactly like that with your pelvis slightly back!

    You should feel a massive shift if he manages to turn. I tried all the other methods and this is the only one that worked for me xx worth a shot? xx

    your welcome, it was invaluable advice for me! my first was born by c-section beacuse of his breech position but this worked a treat with my second boy - advice from a new midwife when we found out he too was breech! I'd recommend it for about an hour, you can pop a pillow on the seat if its uncomfy but watching the tv or a film in that position should be enough time to get him to spin - especially if he is awake! xx

    it works for two reason 1) gravity - head is heavier than the bum and because ur pelvis will be backwards bubs is kinda eased round and 2) because your legs are apart it makes it a big wider down there and a bit more roomy for a turn!

    let me know how you get on xx will keep my fingers crossed for you xx :hugs:

    Theres also a few websites with suggestions thought that one above looks most comfortable!
    Theres all sorts like shining a torch at the bottom of your bump to even putting earphones playing music haha!

    Good luck!
