  • How many weeks are you? Close to birth? I have heard of some doctors trying to change the babies position by manually moving them with their hands on your abdomen..usually using ultrasound as a guide. I am not sure but i've heard that can be quite painful and usually only 50% of the time does it actually work. You are pregnant with twins right?? Kind of odd that he would try to flip both babies the way they need to be.

  • Yes it hurts! I have twins. Sometimes when you are close to birth they move themselves.

  • It means that they are going to help the baby get into the right position. In any case that the baby is breeched, the doctor would have to do a c-section and doctors usually try to avoid that option by helping the baby get into a downward position

  • You said in a group recently you were 10 weeks..they dont try that at 10 weeks. I dont even think they do that w/ twins at all.
