? breech baby

When I saw my GP last week he asked me was the baby breech. I thought they didn't get into their final position for ages yet. As far as I can tell its doing summersaults inside me so its position could change daily. Is that right? Is the GP just referring to the position it was in at the time? If its breech now, surely it will move before delivery? I'm very confused.

Yes I agree, I was also under the impression that they continually moved right up to a few weeks before the birth. My DD definately moved about like nobody's business. GP must of being referring to its current position or maybe he was confused and thought you were further on than you are?? Even if your baby was in 'breech' position at that moment by the time you left the surgery it may well of done a somersault!

Nah... you've got bags of time for baby to do somersaults yet. If you're still breech at 37 weeks then yes..... things would be different but for now it's not even a problem so don't worry about it for a second more.

As a matter of interest, people (docs, MW's etc) like to know the current position of the baby. Yes there is plenty of time for baby to turn still, but I know that my gynae started listing orientation (which was breech at the time) from my appointment on Friday (19W2D)
I vaguely remember having to write orientation in on my patient's charts when I was a student, and we started as soon as we could accurately feel the diferent parts of the baby. I think it was at about 24-28 weeks.
At this point it is nothing to worry about, it's a nice to know...

My m/w writes the position of baby each visit I think - check your blue book. Baby gets into its position about 36 weeks.

Thanks girls, I wasn't really worried just curious. After all I'm a nurse so I tend to disbelieve what most doctors say!!!!!

Yep loads of babies are breech(and various other presentations!) at this stage so it's no prob- just for interests sake really!

About this stage in my pg with Lolly, it said in my book that she was transverse (which means lying longways with head under one rib and feet under the other) I was terrified she was going to stay like that, then she turned breech at 30 weeks and refused to engage until I actually went into labour!!
