I'm 32 weeks and found out today that I'm 25% effaced and 1 1/2 cm. I was sure this baby probably wouldn't stay inside past 37 weeks, but now I'm positive. However, at night when I lay down, the baby moves into a traverse breech position. It hurts like heck and I really can't sleep. When I told this to my doc today, she said it didn't seem necessary. I'm concerned that I may have to get an emergency C-section. I'm prepared for anything that may happen, but if they can detect it sooner than later, I would be a little less anxious. I might go in earlier than expected and don't want to go through 10 hours of active labor before they decide to give me a C-section any how. What advice can you give me?Answer Question

Thank you for the advice ladies. I do have more info pertaining to the situation. I have been contracting for the past 3 weeks. The first week was braxton hicks, the following weeks, real contractions. With my 1st son I was dilated 3 1/2 cm for three weeks and was contracting the entire time. He was born 1.5 weeks early. And I have started losing my mucus plug. I was informed that I will have to wear a Holter(heart) monitor Wen - Thurs. I have been having palpitations and dizziness without being active. I might not be able to give birth naturally anyway. Fingers crossed on that one.
I am thankful for the suggestions about birth in an upright position. I will have to make sure I ask about that option. Although, standing and even squatting causes my dizziness. However, I will consider it.
