At what point due I really start to worry?

I am 36 wks pregnant today and I went for ANOTHER sonogram to check the kidneys and the AFI.
The results: both kidneys are still full and the fluid around him is still elevated. Not dangerous or anything but more than there should be.
AND HE IS BREACHED which is killing my back! Everytime I have gone for a sonogram they always tell me the same thing that they will let me know when to worry but honestly it is starting to bug me that his kidneys are not staying clear. What do i do? Do I call my doc and ask for a consult do I just do nothing?? I am so confused and bamboozled that it isnt even funny. I know my hubby says to just not worry that everything will be fine but comon. How do you NOT worry about things like that?

  • First off all, I would think that a breach baby would hurt less than a baby who is head down in your pelvic bone..

    Secondly... yes, I would call your doctor and ask for names & phone numbers of pediatric specialists that will be treating your son's condition after birth. That way you can familiarize yourself with them

  • Baby's position can cause pains.
    Are you working on getting baby to change?
    There are many things you can do that usually do help.
    Starting with Moxibustion, Webster (chiropractor), exercises at home, etc.
    That might be a great start~ and it could help you feel good knowing you're proactive, too.
