Only my first engaged, my second during labour. I waddled more and felt pressure.

Not till labour :O that would have been scary.



I was meaning the doctor is rude to make people push a breech baby out without checking. I would be scared out of my mind.

You are not checked in australia until you're in labor or until there is a need to induce ( in my case). There is no reason to check at all.
Not all drs allow a vaginal with a first time mum and a breech, mine was unusual.

Thats the same here. they just get the 'duck bill' and look to reduce chance of infection.



There is so much I am learning about pregnancy and birth.

They don't even need to look, looking is checking for dilation. That's what they're doing. Maybe as they're trying to turn a breech.

Yeah they have only done it once and it was because Caitlyn had been bleeding a little and they wanted to check for infection or ruptured membranes etc

Thanks. We hope he is too but we felt her belly today and it doesnt feel like he is sadly. Im preparing myself for him not being breech and missing his birth.
