Breach at 32 weeks kimmi dawn 19 kids; Truro, Nova Scotia 135 posts

I went for an ultrasound to see how big my baby is today because I am measuring a month ahead. Turns out he is only measuring a week ahead and it is all the fluid around him causing me to measurer bigger. Anyhow during the ultrasound it was confirmed that he is still breach (which I was quite sure he was, and have been worried about that)! My other two had flipped by 28 weeks. I have an ultrasound again in two weeks to see if he has flipped yet. Please tell me there is a good chance he will flip still and I won't need a c-section!

Did they give you a list of exercises to do to encourage the baby to flip? You have plenty of time still. Try not to stress.

Im 31 weeks and found out today that my LO is now head down!! Last week, he was breech, the week before head down, and the 2 weeks before that breech!! So im gonna say that their is a pretty good chance he can turn. They are still pretty small and have lots of wiggle room!! Good luck mama!!!

He can still turn. Give him time.

No all the doctor told me was if he doesn't flip in the next few weeks we will have the option of the doctor trying to turn him, or a c-section!

I am not a fan of attmepting the doc to turn them. It is a rough procedure and not without risks. I would not worry about it until you are in labor quite frankly.

my youngest was breech up until about 34 weeks, went in for a check up and to my surprise he was head down. some just take longer, im guessing he was just too stubborn.lol.

I wouldn't worry yet. My son was always head down for my dr's appointments and then he'd flip later he'd turn himself about twice a day. until about 2 days before he was born.

Mine flipped at 36 wks. Babies flip around all the time, my sister's flipped while she was in labor. Plus the extra fluid works in your favor as far as flipping goes. Try the spinningbabies.com website, they have a bunch of suggestions for positions to encourage baby to turn.
