Spanish Bump (36wks 4days)
I dont know whether i should sit and bounce on my birthing ball with my baby in breech position?
I have looked it up and some say yes, (could turn him) and some say no (as it could rock the bum into where the head should engage).
As they aren´t familiar with birthing balls over here, i havent had a medical yes or no, so wondered if anyone had asked their midwifes and had an answer?
I´d prefer to go on the medical say so, rather than google!
Sorry, I don't the answer to this SB, but I'm curious to know the answer, just for future reference.....
Well my baby is transverse and I have been told not to use it, but, that is also because I am waiting on a scan to check if the placenta is fully covering the cervix opening.
I will know more after the 20th of Feb, so should be able to give you a proper answer then.
My babs is currently "frank breech" (at 33 weeks) which means he's bum first. I use my ball and am seeing my consultant on Weds. If he's still in that position, I am booking myself in for an accupuncture (moxa) session. Apparently is has a 70% success rate which are good odds.
I just have a fear that if babs stays in this position, all of a sudden I'll get a c-section date which is the last thing I want......
thanks forgottenpassword & bridezilla. let me know how you get on.
bridezilla - good luck at your appointment tomorrow - let me know how you go. i am wondering if mine is bum first as i feel kicks to the left (they ma be punches tho). Does your consultant think its ok to still be bouncing on the ball? i would be worried the bum would engage where the head should be, at this late stage?...
Hey Spanish Bump
I'll update you tomorrow as I'm not seeing the consultant until this evening. I hope the little blighter has turned (although Mother's intuition tells me otherwise)
Likewise here Bridezilla. I really think it is still his head up here too!
Fingers crossed for you this evening.......
I'm not sure if it's different for breach babies but with DS I could really feel him moving into the correct position.
Hopefully they'll turn for you ladies, DS didn't move until the day I was sitting in the doc's waiting room while they were deciding to give me a c-section as his head hadn't moved out of my side. The little trouble maker wanted to keep me in suspense until the last min
you must be sooo pleased!! well done! ..now, tomorrow, i´m getting my ball back out and am gonna get gyrating!!!
cross your fingers for me ladies.....
mcmummy - wow!! thats amazing!!! i hope mine doesnt keep me in suspense for that long! did you feel him turning?
bridezilla - great news!!!
