    Default 3rd Breech baby...anyone else had this?

    Hi all, I'm currently 34weeks pg with no.3 baby. Baby is breech. This is my 3rd breech baby!! DS1 was an unstable lie (undiagnosed complete placenta previa) he was all over the place, but ultimately breech. DS2 was breech the whole time. No3 baby is breech at the mo, but has also been all over the place (my obstetrician assures me i don't have placenta previa again!!) I know a few mums who've had one breech baby, but no one who has had 3!!! Am I a bit different??!!?

    Have you been diagnosed with bicornuate uternus? I have that and have had 2 babies with both breech. My Ob says the chance is around 90% the 3rd we are ttc will be too.

    As the uterus stretches in pg, you can't see it as well. it's also called a heart shaped uterus and basically a bit called a septum at the top middle of the uterus comes down (like the dip at the top of a heart). This stops the baby turning as it effectively almost puts the uterus into 2 sections.

    Breech and posterior is extremely common in bicornuate.

    This is very interesting, my little sister had a bicornuate uterus. I'll pass this info on to her
