Breech

mellycat82 - February 9

Hey again.. Im nearly 32 weeks now, I went to the doctors yesterday and I was hoping to get an idea of how big the baby is.. He said that she is lying in a breech position and he cant take an accurate measurement. I knew she was lying in an awkward way because I can feel her head right under my ribs and it feels like my ribs are resting on top of her the whole time! Can someone tell me is this dangerous for her? Im so afraid I'm damaging by babies head and that it'll only get worse as she gets bigger... is there much chance she will turn? She has been like this for about 3 weeks now!!

My daughter was a 10 lb baby that they did not realize was breech until my 40 week appointment. She was sitting vertically with her head in my ribs and legs folded. She was born perfectly healthy via c-section. The only repercussion from her breech position was that her legs sprang up towards her chest (like a little frog). In the hospital nursery where most of the blanket-wrapped babies look like little long burritos, my daughter looked like a sphere because her legs were curled up and wouldn't stay straight. This lasted about a week and then they straightened out. I guess she was folded up that way inside me for quite a long time. LOL!
