I'm almost 38 weeks, at my last appointment the baby had turned, so his head and back are now up in my ribs, if he isn't turned by Tuesday, they plan on giving me a C-section. I've been told to walk for an hour everyday to try to help get him down, but so far it seems like he is still facing the wrong way, has anyone been through this before? How did you get the baby to turn? I can't go to a chiropractor because my insurance won't cover it.Answer Question
A couple of important things to keep in mind. First, babies can and do change position up to and including during labor. Secondly, you do not have to agree to a c-section, in most cases breech is a variation of normal and can be birthed vaginally safely. If they insist on scheduling a c-section and you don't want one, you don't have to show up, they can't do anything about it. At 38 weeks you still have 4 weeks for your baby to come within the usual time frame, that is a lot of time for baby to move in time for baby's birth.
