Hi, I had my daughter Nov 2010 by emergency C-section (late diagnosed breech) and I was hoping for a VBAC second time round. I'm now 34 weeks, due end of June 2013. At my 34 week midwife appointment yesterday, the midwife said she strongly suspects baby number 2 is breech again. I've been feeling what I think is the head quite high up pushing into my ribs/diaphragm for a while so I wasn't too surprised. I've got a consultant app on Monday. Midwife said consultant might suggest a scan (or even scan on Monday) but she booked a scan for 36/37 weeks.
So my questions are, did anyone on here go through attempts of turning the baby past 34 weeks (external cephalic version )?? Did your baby turn by itself? Did anyone have a vaginal breech birth? Is elective caesarian the only way forward with confirmed breech?
I really wanted to avoid another c-section as my recovery was quite long and painful last time and I'm not sure how that would work with looking after a toddler as well! The only positive aspect of the elective section would be that childcare would be much easier to plan....hmmmmmmmmmm
