~Prayers Needed For Me~

I went to the OB today and the baby is not head down. They wanted to do a procedure called EVC where they manually turn the baby to make him go head down. I'm 35 weeks along. The baby could still turn the way he's supposed to be before labor so my husband and I decided the procedure is not necessary right now. It's very painful and causes stress on the baby and myself. I would love prayers for the baby to turn head down before labor please...

My third child was in breech position (head up) for the entire 9 months. My due date was December 17.....on December 25 I went to bed with my stomach all cramps (not labour). In the morning I felt my baby bump.....hmm. Something has changed....she had turned.....on .December 31, two weeks overdue I gave birth to a 8lb 7oz baby girl. Normal but very fast delivery.

@LovingMyBabies You're welcome. I wonder if there is a way you can coax him into moving or maybe he's just not quite ready to come out yet lol.

@TRBRocks420 I have been some exercises that are supposed to help turn him on his own. I'm further along than they thought which is why they were in a rush for this... =(

Prayers going up for you. With my second pregnancy, at the 8 month Doctor visit, my son had still not turned. Luckily by the next month (9th month), he had turned. Thank goodness, I didn't need a C Section.

@Leapea2417 Thank you for the prayers. Apparently the doctors didn't think I was as far along as I am. So that is why their getting worried. =(

You will definitely be in my prayers. I am sure little guy will turn before you go to have him. When do you go in to have him?

A breach birth would definitely not be a good thing @LovingMyBabies . They'll need to do an ultrasound prior to delivery to determine whether or not you should have a C-Section instead. At this stage, I don't think he's going to turn.

@LovingMyBabies Recovery is a lot longer too from a C-Section. My Mom had a breach birth but back in the day, you delivered the usual way. Mom said it was quite painful; so I hope the young'un decides to turn.

I see my sister has already been here. Babies do sometimes turn even after their anticipated due date. Praying your little guy gets himself aimed in the right direction! Mine were all head down, but my second child was "sunny-side-up" (meaning he was facing front instead of back) when he finally decided to turn (during transition) it was the ODDEST feeling, and then he practically shot out (the doctor almost didn't catch him ).

Babies can turn at almost anytime. Ask @Morleyhunt. She had one turn after her due date. Not pleasant, I am sure. Check out excersizes that encourage baby to turn head down. I believe the website is spinningbabies.com
