Breech baby questions Mama McNeely 2 kids; Bremerton, Washington 5117 posts

So I will be 37 weeks on sat and I have an ultrasound tomorrow to see if she is still breech. She was Mon. I have been doing the exercises and cold peas etc. I can't tell sometimes if she is breech. Like if a baby is breech can they still kick up high?
She moves around so much which my midwife said is very common for 2nd pregnancies. If she is breech, we will be talking about moving her which scares me. I just don't know. Very worried here. Anyone else going through this or have gone through it? Looking for advice.

If they do a version just make sure they are doing it while watching with an ultrasound in a place that you will be able to get a c-section, (...meaning hospital) lol.



Other than that, it sounds like you know all the right things to do.



What kinda breech is she? Are you still going to try vaginally?

My daughter was breech and they did a ECV (where they turn them) and she flipped back breech RIGHT after they did it.
I ended up with a c-section at 39 weeks 5 days.

That is what I am afraid of.

She could be 'frank breech' like my daughter was. Bum down and feet up on shoulders. That's how I didn't know she was breech lol, I still felt movements at the top!



Good luck, hope its good news tomorrow!
