A de-breeching.

The past 2 weeks are getting to me. My doctor confirmed that I do indeed have a breeched m17 hellcat in my stomach. This explains why I feel like there are 2 whole feet in my VERY low pelvic region. Every twist and turn hurts! I’m too afraid to take a mirror down there, because I’m just sure a foot is sticking out. So, for selfish reasons only, I would like to de breech this kid. I’m 90% sure we will have a c section since it’s been so soon since we had Harper via c section, so it really is my SELFISH need to feel better. I’m only a little over 7 months pregnant, and am freaking out at the prospect of getting more uncomfortable than I already am. 2 months of progressively getting worse. I shudder.

Here’s a short practice run on project debreech (a breech tilt):


Note to self: My boobs look so much better upside down.


I’ve also been doing the cat stretch, knee-chest position, and downing lots of orange juice.

Anyone have any success with non-painful methods?

Everyone say a prayer that soon, I will have more room in my pelvis. Because things are just not working out right now down there.

  1. My munchkin is breech, too! I’m only 25 weeks along but it’s my first. I was wondering why most of the kicks and jabs I feel are so low when I kept hearing stories about painful kicks to the ribs and diaphragm. The ultrasound tech had told me the baby was breech (and had a hard time getting it to hold still long enough for all the necessary measurements, it’s an active little monster) and I had guessed that was the reason most of the kicks bounce around in my pelvic region instead of behind my belly button, but I didn’t know for sure. I’m lucky though, some of the movements get uncomfortable but none have been painful so far, and the munchkin rolls quite a bit so not only do I still get the occasional belly button jab, many of the motions feel more like tumbling than direct hits :/ I wish you success in your de-breeching so it no longer hurts!

  2. I read on a birth board that one woman put a bag of frozen something (peas, insert veggie here) on top of her belly and a warm compress on the bottom of her belly to encourage the baby to flip. She said it worked. She also played music down there to encourage baby to turn. I guess what could it hurt? I’m 36 weeks tomorrow and this kid is KILLING my ribs – but I know the alternative is killing down there, so we really can’t win.
