DS was breech and I had an ELCS at 39 weeks. I'm now 38 weeks with DC2 and the midwife thinks it is another breech pregnancy. I had been getting ready to have a VBAC (and was even thinking of a HBAC) but now trying to get my head around another C section. I can't get a presentation scan until 39w2d so won't know for nearly a week. I've been saying at my last 2 checks that I thought the baby was breech as it felt exactly the same as last time but was told each time it was ok.
Anyway, was wondering if anyone else has experience of multiple breech pregnancies. I have been told that maybe my uterus is just shaped in such a way that it encourages the babies to lie like that. Last time I did everything I could to get DS to change to head down and I don't know if I have the energy to try. I spent ages with my bum in the air, tried a warm bath with a cold pack on my bump, moxibustion and lying upside down on the ironing board. The midwife today suggested looking into accupressure. Have any of these worked for you?
I didn't have an ECV last time as there was low amniotic fluid and I don't really like the sound of it. Any experience of having it with a 2nd breech baby?
Thanks for the replies. I don't think a ELCS is the worst case scenario but I am a bit sad at the thought of not experiencing labour (while partly relieved as well). It's encouraging to hear of babies turning at that late a stage but I don't know what I would do in that situation. I'm also glad an ECV isn't an option as I think they sound quite scary but I might have felt obliged to give it a go. I think it's going to be an interesting week ahead.
