Hi ladies, I am currently 32 weeks pregnant and bubs is breech. He started off transverse and shifted to breech and hasn't moved. I know he still has some time left to turn however I think if he hasn't shifted for the last 12 weeks why would he now. My doctor is talking of the possibility of attempting to turn him however from what I have read this is rarely successful and can be painful. My question is has anyone had this done and if so did it work or did bubs move back to breech? Also was it painful? I have an ultrasound Monday to also check my placenta location as it was borderline low (25mm) but they were certain that would move up as my pregnancy advanced could this be why he is breech? Thanks in advance sorry for all the questions.
My second bub was breech right up until 36 weeks. He turned on his own, and was born a week later, so he really left it until the last minute lol.
I'm sorry I can't be much help with your questions, I just wanted to say that sometimes they do turn on their own quite late. Hopefully this will happen for you!
Good luck smile
I had accupunture over the next couple of weeks and sure enough the minute I went into labour she flipped up and I delivered her naturally. I have also heard good reports about chiropractors that specialise in pregnancy helping with breach babies. Good Luck!
