breech baby?

I'll be 36 weeks on Friday, and my baby is still breech. When I go in next week, I'll be 36 weeks 4 days, and my doctor and I will set a day for a c-section, when I'm about 39 weeks pregnant. My second son was born 11 days early. I'm so worried that this baby will not wait until the scheduled day. I'm so worried about the cord coming out first, and having something go horribly wrong.

Has anyone had a breech baby, and if so what were your experiences?

I'm just totally freeking out!

First of all, there are exercises that could help turn your baby.  One I've heard of is to get on your hands and knees and rock back and forth.  Research the web to find more midwife tricks.  Second, breech babies are successfully born vaginally all around the world, and they didn't stop doing that in the U.S. until the 1950s.  Third, even if you do go into labor, the odds of having the baby suddenly, before you get to the hospital, are almost nil, so you just go to the hospital and they start the c-section.  They section women in active labor all the time.  So calm down!  It will be ok!

Find a chiropractor that specializes in the Webster technique. After a few adjustments baby will turn head down!

Im currently 22 weeks and for the past two ultrasounds my baby has been breech.  Everyone keeps saying shes going to move and i know shes moving but its still a fear.  This is my first and the only reason they keep checking with extra ultrasounds is because they cant see the cord or get a good read on the kidneys and heart.  Its stressful but i know i just need to think positive.
