Is this baby breech?
The only sure way to know is to have a sonogram (ultrasound). Even particularly awesome and experienced caregivers make mistakes when they feel your belly (called palpation). It is notoriously difficult to tell the difference between and head and a butt. Luckily it’s much easier when the baby is out. :)
If you think your baby has flipped, try to confirm, and then spend 20-60 min/day outside walking briskly to help the baby settle head down.
Here are some things to watch out for that may mean your baby is breech:
- It feels like something hard is up under your ribs.
- You feel the strongest movements/kicks low in your belly (footling, incomplete breech)
- You have less movement than you did with other babies (if you've been pregnant before).
