Do you get another ultrasound towards the end to see if baby is breech?

I've been meaning to ask my doctor this, my next appointment is the 27th, But I am just curious if they do an ultrasound or if they can tell by just feeling around on my tummy? Did your doctors do an ultrasound?

  • They can tell just by feeling around. If you knew what to feel for, you could tell yourself.

  • Unless it's suspected no,but they didn't know mine was breech until i was 8cm.

  • What exactly should I look for if I'm feeling around myself?

  • I felt kicking in the wrong direction personally,but that stopped when he pulled his legs up. but in most cases they can tell by feeling your pelvic area.

  • Yup, I got one for a weight check, & I was checked again before my C-section.

  • They can feel your belly and know exactly where they are. I used to to it on myself and it was fun to show people where DS was. As far as the Ultrasounds go I had one everytime I went to the doctor b/c I was high risk, so I was not normal. My friend went to the the clinic and she had 2. I am pretty sure most people get 2.
