    Default breech vaginal birth?

    Anyone gave birth to a breech bub? I m 35 weeks with no.4 and she is still breech .
    My other two were natural vaginal births with no pain relief and no.3 was 4.7kgs. No tears with any.
    On is leaning more to vaginal as due to my history she thinks I can do it and this bub Os measuring average size.
    I am petrified and also would hate having a c section due to having to care for other three small kids..

    Not me but my best friend did. She is tiny. 45kgs soaking wet and he was about average at birth - around the low 7s from memory. She was literally on the table getting prepped for an emergency c-section but he had other ideas lol. She handled it well - he was her 3rd and she didn't have any trauma from it and he was fine and healthy.

    Yes ob has mentioned it but I m not sure I d like it. I guess I would prefer ecv over c section but I m worried as my placenta is at the front on my right and bubs head on left.. also they would do ecv at 37w and can result in labour , while my husband can't take time off work until 3 weeks after bub is born so I m hoping to go week late.. I m watching breech births on you tube. Some amazing videos. What worries me is bubs head getting stuck.
    I ll be on my knees cleaning carpet next week lol

    Reason I ask about the ECV is that I had one with my 3rd. It was successful and didn't put me into labour. I realise it isn't for everyone but it worked for me. If the ECV wasn't successful I was going to opt for a c/s. My ob was happy to trial labour but like you, I was very nervous about the head getting stuck.

    Baby was breech until around 38 weeks here. Turned just a fortnight before going into labour and having a straight forward vaginal birth. Just saying, don't get your head set on getting through a breech birth this early - they have so much more space when it's 3+ baby. Your care provider sounds great and supportive. I would take it day by day, do some inversions (google breech inversions) and not be too stressed yet x

    Give it a couple more weeks. My DD (first baby) was breech until quite late - I think 36 or 37 weeks. Was so long ago now! We'd already started discussing options but she turned on her own and was delivered normally at full term.

    Thanks. I have been kneeling on all fours, raising my bum in the air and swimming a lot. She is still breech. I really hope she turns soon. After my last, 4.7 kg painful delivery , I was really hoping I would get an easy water birth. I am eating so healthy, walking a lot, really active, so that bub isn't overly big and she is measuring average.. oh well...I m trying to relax and visualize her turning
