I am 31 weeks pregnant with twins and the doctor says that as long as they are both head down when it's time to deliver, I can have them vaginally. But if one or both of them are breech we will have to have a c-section.
Sooo ... my question is ... do you think at 31 weeks they could still flip? They are HEAD DOWN right now and I am PRAYING that they stay that way because I am scared to death at the idea of having a c-section!
And I just keep worrying that when I go for my ultrasound next week one of them will be breech. LoL. What do you think? Do you think they are too big to flip at this point? I know no one can say for sure... just wanted some opinions! Thanks!

Ati 13 is absolutely right. You can refuse a c-section. Breech is not a medical emergency. Many women deliver breech babies at home, unassisted. Trust your body. A baby can flip at any time. My last baby was a 10 pounder who flipped several times in her last couple weeks. The day before she came she was breech & she flipped back the day she was born. I can say it is very weird. Having a twin do it may not be so noticeable since they are smaller. I did not like the sensation at all! Hahaha! It was like the alien was trying to bust out & why she would have kept doing it is beyond me, as is HOW she could do it. Good luck!
