Baby is still breech.... — The Bump
Success after IF

Baby is still breech....

Or so it would appear after today's MW appointment.  I go for another growth scan next week at 33w2d and if he's still breech at that point - I'm headed to acupuncturist the next day and will probably also see a local chiropractor who is certified in the webster technique to turn breech babies.  And I'll try a lot of the exercises you can do on your own.  And, we'll see what happens!  If we can't get him to turn - so be it.  I know we still have time though and I'm not freaking out.  Part of me thinks, if he stays breech, well, there's a reason and we'll just go with it (it's an automatic C for me if he does.)  But we'll see if we can persuade him to turn! 

Wheee!

Re: Baby is still breech....

  • Best of luck!  You still have time.  Hopefully he won't be too stubborn!!!!

    xoox

  • I didn't know he was breech! Turn jack turn!
    Married on 3.20.2004. It took 30 month, 2 failed adoptions and IVF for our first miracle. We have had 9 foster kids since he was born and started the domestic adoption process when he was 10 month old, we had 4 failed matches in that time. After our daughter was born we brought her home and spent 2 weeks fearing we might lose her because of complications that came up. But Praise God all went through and she is ours forever!

  • Wow!  I actually did not even think about the fact that they can tell how the baby is situated at a regular appt. I have not had a growth scan so maybe that is why it has not been mentioned.  I hope Jack turns around.

  • My friend just had this happen. They tried and tried to turn the babe and she wouldn't cooperate so they schedule her for a c at 36 weeks and delivered her at 39.

    I just got confirmation from my OB today that one of the main reasons I was/have been in so much pain is that the trip closest to my cervix just did his flip to head down and his twin is close behind. They had been breech up till probably Sunday when this pain hit me. So.. hopefully yours will get a movin!
  • i have been breach all along too.  We have an u/s tomorrow to see what is up with her.  Based on the movement I am feeling I don't think she is, but heck if I know.

    I hope your "tricks" work. :)

  • There's still time. Babies move around all the time. DD was normal the whole time, until I was induced and went into labor. She decided to go butt-down. I had an emergency c-section. Hopefully your little peanut turns. Keep us posted.
    Our family is growing!

  • I hope he turns!!! mine have both been breech for months ;o(

    Turn jack Turn!!!
  • From what I've read, chiropractors have great success with the Webster method.  I see mine every 3 weeks for now and I really believe she's been helping me avoid aches and pains so far.  (Though for me it will still be a c-section because of the twins.)  I hope he flips over soon.
  • I went to a chiropractor and she did the webster technique on me. She wasn't successful, but I still really believe in it! You've got a great outlook on things b/c it is true that if he doesn't turn, its for a reason.... that was the case w mine!!! Good luck, I hope he flips for you!!
