I went in for my 32-week appointment and learned that Adeline had turned – the wrong way! She is now head up! She had been head down for forever.
Because I have an anterior placenta, I can't feel her little parts as easily as I could with Elias, so I had no idea.
We are praying every day that she turns because I do NOT want a c-section.
My sister is a mom and baby nurse and asked the doctor she works with how likely it was that Adeline would turn on her own – he said five percent. But he said that it was 70 percent likely that they could turn her manually since she is my second child.
I would rather she turn on her own and have researched some options. Some seem kind of silly, but I am willing to try anything:
- Shining a light down by my pelvic bone
- Playing music or having Matthew talk to her at my pelvic bone
- Putting something cold (ie a bag of peas) at the top of my uterus
- Crawl around for 15-20 minutes on all fours – I think Elias will be a fan of this
I also watched this video, which shows some of the aforementioned suggestions. Many commenters said that their babies turned after doing the exercises for a week or two.
Was your baby breech? Did you try to turn him or her? Would love your suggestions!
