Breach baby!

So I'm 23 weeks preg and my baby girl is breach, and I'm still only feeling movement very low in my belly, like at the hip line.. She's pretty long already , but I was curious to ask mothers who had carried breach baby's if they felt the same?

  • She will turn! It is early yet.

  • There is still time for baby to turn. What is your ob saying about it?

  • They don't even usually classify a baby as breech until 30 weeks or so since it is very common for babies not to turn head down until into the third trimester. I would not worry about it yet. Check out the Spinning Babies website for some exercises you can do to get baby into an optimal birth position.

  • You are still very early! My youngest was breech he used to kick my hips all the time!Very painful!

  • Your only 1/2 way through the pregnancy!! Give it time. Worry about the baby being breach when your 39 weeks along. Not 23.

  • You're not classified as "breech" yet- she's not even viable. EVERY fetus at some point is/was breech.

  • I agree with the others. Your baby isn't settled into the delivery position yet, no worries...just discomfort.
