    Default Ramlet is no longer breech....for now!

    I posted a couple of weeks ago about breech babies and after my checkup today, I've been informed that Ramlet has turned and is head down!!! Those OFP exercises worked!



    I feel relieved and excited....hopefully he won't turn back!

    MrsR that is so good to hear. Well done to you both. I believe that it's not very common for them to turn again so I am sure that you will be fine now. All the best, the exciting bit is not that far off now!

    Boo, I managed to get into a heated pool for around 30 mins once a week and wallowed a bit on my tummy (which was pure bliss!!) and being on the couch while watching tv, just stayed on my hands and knees whenever I thought of it. Or, if your wrists got a bit sore, I just piled up cushions and rested on my forearms on the couch. There wasn't any real regularity to it, but I did it whenever I thought of it. Maybe 5-10 minutes each time.

    On the weekend Ramlet was wriggling around like a crazy man - more so than usual and when I went for my checkup on Monday there he/she was...HEAD DOWN!!

    PS...good luck with your ECV - if you have to have it!

    boo...Hopefully your little monkey will turn before Friday. I made sure I was comfortable while doing them too...also popped a heat pack on my back as well (when I remembered) when I was on all fours.

    lestypuss...here's hoping the big fella/sheila makes its appearance earlier rather than later!! I feel bloody massive.

    mrsr.......... wishing you the best. I wished for the same thing because I felt like an elephant, but no................. 40 weeks + 2..............exactly 40 weeks ago today. How weird.

    He has been out almost as long as he was in. It goes sooooo fast.
