I need to vent and then get some suggestions...
So...had my 32 week check up today. My little man has been in the breech position for a while now and the 3d ultrasound at 29 weeks showed him in the "pike" or "frank" position, with his legs stretched out above his head. Today my Dr. said that by now he should be turning, and he isn't. She also said that in the "pike breech" he is less likely to turn around in time for a vaginal delivery than he would be he was in full breech or transverse!
I have another appointment in 2 weeks and if he is still presenting breech they will schedule an ultrasound for 35 weeks and again at 36 weeks. At that point, if he is still not head down we will have to, "discuss options."
She said the likelihood of being able to manually turn the baby is 50% and super painful and the other option is a scheduled c-section.
LAME! Any tips for me to help encourage my little man to flip over?
