Thanks! I know I have lots of time. One of my twins turned while I was in labor saving me from the c-sec they were wanting to do. We actually watched it on u/s. It was awesome! I was so grateful because I really didn't want a c-sec since some OB's will deliver with baby B breech anyway. I thought mine would and didn't find out till it was too late that he had mislead me....basically lied...and wouldn't do it if they weren't both head down. When I went into labor, knowing baby B was breech, the first thing I did when we got to the hospital was insist on an u/s BEFORE they started prepping me for the c-sec. He had already started moving like nothing I'd ever felt. We watched him finish up turning on the u/s. It was so cool and such a blessing.

Anyway, I know I have time, but I'm still nervous. I've had 5 children vaginally including 2 sets of twins against the odds. I REALLY don't want to end up with a c-sec for my last one, who is a singleton.

I think I'm going to start spinning babies now because honestly, this hurts. I know he could turn back even if I get him to turn, but I'll take any relief I can get from him kicking my pelvic bone. Ouch!!!
