I went for my routine appt Mon and my MW said my baby is not head down yet. I was 29 weeks. I thought it was common for babies to be head up until sometime after 30 weeks and didn't really become an issue until about 34 weeks. I asked her and she confirmed that we wouldn't worry until about 32-34 weeks.
But...She recommended I do the positions at spinningbabies.com (which I have been all week) and make an appt w/ a chiropractor that can do the Webster technique (not able to get an appt since it was thanksgiving week) to get baby turned head down. Then she scheduled me for an u/s on Mon and if he is still head up she wants to do a "gentle version" to attempt to get him to turn himself.
So, if its not uncommon to be head up at this point and I have 4 full weeks before its "time to worry" why is she already worrying? I understand the positions at spinningbabies.com, but a chriopractor an u/s and any type of version seems like overkill to me at this point. Isn't it possible that, at this point, she could get him to turn or the chiropractor could get him to turn and he could just spin himself around again? Isn't the reason you wait till 34 weeks is because at that point the size of the baby makes it harder for them to turn, so if you sucessfully get them head down the chance they will turn themselves head up again is very small?
Any input, personal experiences, and/or thoughts would be much appreciated. Thanks :)
