    Just had my weekly midwife Appointment. Blood pressure was okish, and no protein in my water but Baby Brent has now decided to go Breech after weeks of being head down. So now I have an appointment at the hospital tomorrow morning at 9.30 to confirm and if so I will most likely be taken in at 37 weeks for a Section if Baby does not decide to turn again.

    Had Five Babies normally so as you can imagine quite frightened. Midwife said because of my high risk status (on heparin to prevent DVT & 40 !) they would give me a Section and quite frankly im not worried what they do as long as its the best solution for baby and me.

    Will let you know how I got on.

    Hi Ragna!

    I'm sending "please turn baby" thoughts to your little one! Is there anything you can do to encourage the baby to turn? On the plus side, as Emma says, if you do have to have a C section you'll be seeing that baby sooner :)

    Hi Ragna
    I had just read an article this week about subsequent babies that really only turn a couple of weeks or even days, before due date - where as first babies normally engage around 34 weeks.
    I'm sure that things will work out for you, but if I was you - I'd sleep with my bum in the air tonight!!!! :shock: or scrub the floors from sunset to sunrise........ :shock: :shock: :shock:
    It's one of my worries too about having had normal deliveries and possibly a section this time round. I'll be thinking of you tomorrow - good luck!!!!!!!!

    Hiya all

    Thanks so much for all your good wishes. Havnt really got any further on today at the Hospital. Went along and my blood pressure was really normal & low for me which was a bit of a shock seeing how concerned obviously I am. I am going back next Thursday and if the baby is still breech then they will tell me my options which are either turning the baby (which im not very keen on and under the circumstances my midwife isnt either) or a Section. But you never know..perhaps he/she will move by next week. Otherwise It looks like Ill be spending my Birthday week in Hospital with a new baby...Wow..what a birthday present !!

    Awww Ragna I'm sorry little one is being a pain in the bum. We still have to meet up before this little one arrives ... better make it sooner than later then eh!

    Spending birthday week don't sound like too much fun - my due date is near my bday and am apprehensive about baby coming on my birthday!

    Just got Back from Hospital after waiting over an hour to be seen !!! Hurrayyyy Brenty has got it right this week and is the right way round. Had to have a scan to confirm, and tried to have a good look to see if we could see any dangly bits but Brenty was too big to work it out.

    Had the nicest Registrar you could ask for, who explained everything clearly to me (for once) He said because of my problems with my Blood and the fact that I would like an Epidural, they would want to induce me as I will have to come off the Heparin 24 hours previous. If they induce me too early then the cervix might not be ready for me be giving birth and therefore would make the Labour much longer which would be dangerous for me to be off the Heparin over such a long period of time. So I have got another appointment in 3 weeks time which is just before I am 40 weeks to check my Cervix and they will then give me a Date as to when I will have the baby, unless of course I go into Labour before or my blood pressure shoots up I guess. (Blood pressure was 153/82 which is good although quite a bit up from last time but I was VERY anxious.)

    So looks like I wont be having Baby early after all. He commented as well on the size and said "Baby is good size"
    So all in all Good news !!! Yes of course it would be nice to have had the baby earlier but its much better for he/her to stay where its meant to be and come when he/she is ready. Just hope its not too BIG !! Ouch !!!
