My baby has been breech until now, I'm 32+3, but today I found out they are transverse. I'm just looking for some experiences, good or bad, really. Did your baby go head down or stay transverse? Were you admitted to hospital earlier than your planned labour due to risks?

Firstly OMG I can't believe you are 32 weeks! I was thinking about 20ish!!
O went breech about 26 weeks I think it was and was transverse at my 32 week check. They didn't seem massively concerned and I was booked in for a scan at 37 weeks. As it was I went back to the midwife at 35 weeks and he was breech again and then my waters broke the next day!
What did the midwife say?

I'm not sure myself how I'm 32 weeks!
I had a scan yesterday afternoon which said baby was actually head down so either baby is just spinning around or the midwife got it wrong in the morning. The movements I feel don't match up with head down though as I feel most of the movements at the side where the sonographer said the back was. I'm back at the midwife next Friday so will see what they say then but at least if baby is spinning about that's better than just happy in transverse or breech.
Hope you are all well. xx

That's good news then, as you say there must be space at least so hopefully your wee bubs will be in position!xx

Hi TP, L was traverse at 35ish weeks. MW seemed unconcerned, but I was pretty worried as I knew if he didn't move I'd be having a CS. I did lots of exercises, looked on spinning babies webpage and googled. They mainly involved getting your head below your bum. I did them religiously. L moved (think a week later but may have been two weeks later) and he didn't move back so stayed head down until the end.
