my baby is in sitting position and i am 30 weeks....worried
I am a first time mum and i am 30 weeks now. Last week when i had the scan the doc told the baby is in sitting position and we might need to do a c-sec if the position is not changing.Did anybody have this problem?I want a normal delivery and not a c-sec.Please advise.
My first was breech until about 36 weeks! I had a scan at 37 weeks which luckily showed she had turned - most do so at 30 weeks theres still plenty of time. There are several things you can do that are supposed to encourage baby to turn like certain postions, moxibuxtion etc. If you google turning breech baby you will find lots of info. I did them all but whether it helped or she would have turned any way I will never know!
my baby is also in the "frank breech" position at 32 weeks. It has been like this since 28 weeks. I am also worried about having c section as i have had 2 normal deliveries previously.
I will be trying everything to turn it, including moxibustion and ECV. At the end of the day though will have to take a consultants advice at 36 weeks. ~i know how you feel x
Just wanted to share good news on this as my bubs has been in the 'frank' breech position up until now, and then turned yesterday at 34+6! I was doing the knee to chest position twice a day for 10-15 mins and putting ice on the top of my bump twice a day for 15 mins too (as babies hate cold on their heads so it encourages them to turn). Was going to book for acupuncture and moxibustion this week but then bubs flipped all by him/herself. So, try the things that are suggested on breech websites etc as it worked for me- also my dr said not to worry until 36 weeks as they have oom to turn until then. Good luck everyone that is still breech!.x.
thanks Trixie- theres still hope for me then! i havent tried the ice yet, but will give it a go!
my baby has turned! at 34 week mw appointment, it is now head down. i just hopr it stays like it!!!
Just a quick one from me, I had a 36 week growth scan today to check on my placenta (which was covering my cervix by 3 cm four weeks ago) and baby's position and somehow, my placenta is now 2cm clear of my cervix and baby is head down and engaged so we are all clear for going for a vaginal delivery. So it goes to prove that even at this stage it's not too late. Hope your babies behave and move to their correct positions v. soon.
