If the baby has turned breech, there are things you can do to try to turn the baby (like headstands in the swimming pool), but a vaginal birth is not lost, depending on the type of breech. If the baby is transverse or frank breech (back or butt first), or incomplete breech, where one leg is down, but one is up, then you would need a c-section, but if the baby is a complete breech, your doctor or midwife may be willing to do a vaginal birth. They can try an external version, which is when the doctor or midwife physically turns the baby from the outside, but that's VERY dangerous, and can do a lot of damage if not done properly, so you would only want it done by someone who has done it hundreds of times. You may also be feeling the hiccups in an area where the head is not (ideally!). You can have the doc check the position next time you are seen. Good luck!
