Breech at 35 weeks

Hey Girls
looking for some help / advice / reassurance??? Am 35 +3 days with our first little baby....Had scan yesterday and was told that baby is breech, had scan 2 weeks ago and she was fine!! Doctor said to wait for another 2 weeks and if she hasnt moved then I will have a planned section at 39 weeks, (i refused the option of trying to turn baby) and Im not really worried about the section........anyway, the doctor then said keep a close eye on movement!! SO thats the thing that has freaked me out a bit, baby has been moving away everyday and its not something I have been keeping an eye on or freting about.

I know I may be irrational, but is there a higher risk of stillbirth, or some sort of defect?? I really am driving myself mad with worry, and I always find coming on here helps!!

Thanks in advance for any help
Take care

Oh you poor love, don't worry!! Your doctor possibly meant that you may feel your baby turn so maybe that's why he asked you to keep an eye on movments. There's no other real concern with a breech baby, they will have scanned the placenta and cord so would've seen whether there was a potential problem there.

Often the biggest worry with a breech baby is Mum being worried not knowing whether she will have a section or if the baby will turn and therefore feeling disorganised. It sounds like you're happy with the plan to deliver your baby so that's really good.

hi, i am a bit behind you but my l/o is also breach, Bells is right they are just asking you to see if you feel baby turn, can i ask why you decided against letting them try to turn the baby? they have suggested this to me too but i havent had chance to research it yet.

I believe getting on all fours and leaning over a birthing ball is a good way to get baby to turn, i think the worse thing to do is to be sat on the sofa or chair, which i am 8 hours a day at the moment.

my baby girl was breech from 28wks and I knew I am having c-section, "to turn baby" option wasn't offered to me but I've read there are some risks with it so I wasn't even consider this. I was (well done you) worried about c-section but it was absolutely fine and I recovered brilliantly. I am sure doctor meant that baby may turn and this is why you need to keep eye on her. :P wishing you best of luck and you have nothing to worry I am sure!

Oh dear, that Dr didn't really think that sentence through did he. Like the others say I'm sure that he just ment watch for her moving into position, as far as I'm aware there are no problems with baby being breech, in fact some women give birth like that. If you have a look on the internet there are lots of positions you can adopt try to incourage baby to turn over and I think accupuncture is thought to help.

My mother was breech with my sister up until 37 weeks (she gave birth at 38 weeks) when she was crossing the road one day my sis decided to turn round scaring the hell our of my mother as her belly suddenly went rock hard and conical shape as she went end over end. Babies like to keep you guessing.

Hope bubs turns round for you soon.

Hey Girls
Thank you Thank you Thank you....all your words are so reassuring, and I honestly feel so much less of a stress bucket today!!

Paris - I decided against letting them try to move the baby as my doctor said that its 40-50% successful and that there are risks associated with it such as the cord around the babys neck, I am sure that plenty of people have been in the successful end of this, but I really thought that baby will decided which way she wants to come out without me putting her at any additional risk. Hope this is of some help with your decision.

Once again, thanks so much girls
Take care

Hiya!!

A girl in my yoga class successfully turned her baby by doing some yoga stretches (on all 4's and move hips in figure of 8, also on all 4's and sway from side to side). She also played music to it, not sure what type but i think she played it to the bottom of her tummy to encourage baby to move down! maybe worth a look on the internet.

Hope all goes well Mrs!

Hi Elvisnniamh, I remember you from the "clomid chicks" when my dd was ttc and on clomid.( it didn't work, but gonal f injections worked first time) When I was pg with Fiona, she was breech from 34-39 weeks then turned by herself. At that time, turning babies was going out of favour - it does carry a small risk of (a) baby becoming entangled in the cord and (b) the placenta separating, which would result in haemorrhage.
I remember when I first qualified as a midwife, it was common practice to turn breech babies in the antenatal clinic, believe it or not!! More often than not as soon as mum got off the bed, baby would turn right back!!.Sometimes, the reason a baby adopts this position is because his head doesn't fit in the pelvis, but his bum's smaller, so that fits nicely!!Hence the reason they prefer to deliver breech babies by c/s if it's a first baby, or feels much bigger than previous babies if you're not a first timer.

glad the baby turned for you, got my scan in 6 days as baby is transverse and has been throughout, i can feel her still in the same position she must be really comfy as she has been like this throughout, so will be getting the date for my c-section on 1st Dec by the looks of things. Don't really mind though as DP has 3 wks off to look after me and baby and have really supportive family close by to help while I recover
