Quoting Landon's Mommy *34wks*:" Anddddddd Mallory has officially moved from transverse to BREECH! She's around 5 1/2 lbs & expected ... [snip!] ... then I'm not sure the next step. Maybe they'll try to turn her?? I've heard it hurts though, ouch. I DO NOT want a csection :("
Oh dang! Hope she flips on her own!! I don't want a c section either but my baby has not turned yet either! I go to the doc on Thurs so we'll see what she thinks.
DH said "Why can't you just deliver feet first?" I just told him that most doctors won't even attempt it. It's less risky to cut us open than birth a breech baby in their opinion.
I'm due december 25th a, little boy couldn't be more excited! :-)
When my mom was preggo with my littlest sister, they told her, to "sit.on a radio" seriously the baby would flip towards the music. I.thought the Dr was crazy, guess not she flipped and mom delivered naturally!
There's all sorts of little exercises you can do to help the baby turn, I'll call my Doula and get this list again for you.
Going in for another ultrasound tomorrow...I lost 5 lbs and apparently my stomach is not measuring where it should be.
Also note that my I have a low lying placenta and last time I went in for the 3D ultrasound they couldn't even see her that good because she is in a ball behind the placenta and has been like that for a while now. I will update after I get home tomorrow.
Had my 33 week midwife apointment today and she is still concerned about my size. I have grown a little but am still measuring 4 weeks too small so has arranged another appointment for next weds. If I'm still measuring too small then she is going to send me for another growth scan!

I'm sure all is fine! Will think good thoughts for you :)
Hope everyone is well, I haven't been on BG since July! I can't believe it has been that long...Anyway, how is everyone feeling? I'm 34 weeks, due the 9th of December and planning a home birth. I have been seeing a midwife this whole time and it's just been a totally different experience than my other pregnancies and I really like it! I'm measuring 36 weeks and gaining weight slowly, just a half a pound a week or so now. We are having a boy, I didn't want to find out but my fiance did so we did :) I think that was the last time I was on BG actually way back when we found out! I hope you all are having a great Halloween! This is me at 34 weeks on Sunday :)

Thank you! It's so strange cause some nights I feel like my bump has grown so much but then I can wake up and be tiny again!
I woke up in the middle of the night last night and I had been sleeping on my belly without realising. When I felt my belly I could barely feel a bump and I freaked out. She must be hiding!
Was just wondering how many of you ladies feel ready for labour? I still feel so unprepared and nervous even though I have been through it once before!
I had what I think we're Brixton hicks the other night and it scared the hell out of me as I thought it might be early labour. My friend is 4 weeks ahead of me and due her little girl in three weeks, she said she feels ready to meet her now but I so don't!
I know I still have seven weeks to go but so far this pregnancy has flown by!

You look great! :)
Well my brother and his girlfriend, as well as my mom, are at the hospital getting ready to welcome their little girl into the world. I'm going down to see them this weekend. I'm so excited for them and can't wait to meet her. I got to hold my coworker's newborn yesterday and it was so nice. I'm more and more ready for little Riley to be here too. Seems like there are babies popping up everywhere and I still have to wait for mine.
On a different note. We are meeting with a potential babysitter Saturday morning. It's the same one my nephews are going to start going to soon. It would be pretty handy to have our kids at the same sitter in case something should happen and one of us would need someone else to pick up the kiddos, like maybe...me going into labor. :D
Hi all! Hope every one is doing well. Our internet has been down for over a week. So nice to finally get back online - although I got so much done in this last week!
I've packed all my bags for hospital, cleaned out the house, organised just about every space, washed and put away all baby clothes, detailed my car... Everything!
I'd never guess in a million years that I'd still have this much energy at 36 weeks! Every one told me how exhausted I'd be in 3rd trimester, especially with a toddler but some days it's my son trying to keep up with me :)
I'm still sleeping well, so that's a bonus.
Only down side? My stomach muscles are starting to separate :( I'm glad I realised early. I've stopped all heavy lifting (sorry DS! Luckily he's cruisy) and have begun light ab exercises (tilts and very very gently core work).
Hope you're all well! x

I feel ready. It might just be I'm tired. I have a lot of pelvic pain & my belly button hurts! :(

Yep & that is exactly right. Now there are cases where doctors were not aware (which Idk how the heck this happens!) that the babies were breech OR they literally flipped right before labor, an they've been delivered breech. However, extremely dangerous & like you said, most won't even attempt!!!
I'm not gonna fret until they do! I'm praying she flips on her own or they'll manually try & flip her, even though I've heard it hurts soooo bad. But I just don't want a c-section at all. If it comes down to that, of course I'll do what I have to do. But it's not ideal lol
