breech baby? b 7 Due November 25; Indiana 253 posts
31st Oct '12

I went to the doctor yestarday and they felt my cervix I was dilated to a one but he couldn't feel the babys head so he did an ultrasound and she is breech so he talked to me about turning her or scheduleing a c-section so I decided to try to turn her instead of having a c-section. Has anyone had there baby turned by the doctor and if so what does it feel like because I am super scared. I know that they can't deliver a breech baby so that is y I went with her being turned. Anyways I really would like to hear other womens experience on this and how long after did u go into labor??? Sorry so long I'm really scared!

Baby # 8 and 9 for me were breeched and turned at 36 weeks which is when I had them also! I was indeed scheduled for an inversion 4 days after she turned,I too was scared and also learned that sometimes it starts labor and they do the procedure w/ U/S assistance! There is still some time for the baby to turn. Now my 9th baby went head down on his own and while i was in labor he turned back transverse between 7-9 cm , I was then rushed into Emergency C~section!! Baby can also turn once an inversion has been done also!

#3 and #4 were transverse/breech, and c-sections were scheduled (because my SIl had the inversions done, and she said while they hurt like hell, they didnt work, so i didnt want to risk it). But luckily, each of them turned around 37-38 weeks. #4 turned back breech while I was in labor though, so we had an emergency c-section anyway :/

So did u end up getting the inversion? And if u did, did it start labor?

I am just trying to get out of a c-section because I want to go through the labor part I don't wanna have surgery if I don't have to. I know some women would perfer a c-section but not me I like experincing labor. I am so scared that it will hurt and if they get her turned I will only be 37 weeks and I hope that she is fully developed just in case I were to go into labor. I'm pretty scared I couldn't sleep because I was so worried about it! I hope it all goes well

yeah I'm sad i've never experienced labor so I know how you feel about that. and my girls were born at 37 wks and were fully developed and healthy (no nicu either) so i'm sure she will be fine :)

My daughter flipped breech while I was in labor. They tried to turn her but she wouldn't budge. Since I was already in labor, they had to give me terbutaline to stop my contractions. That was the worst. Not a good experience at all and very scary. But I am glad I at least had them try. I didn't want to always be like, Well what if I had tried and she had turned?
