Post subject: Stupid question
So with this pregnancy being a subsequent one it means midwife appointments are very few and far between. My next being a 28 weeks.. last one was at 9 weeks but obviously I had a scan at 19 weeks.
My questions is though, how will the midwife know baby is breech or not? If I am measuring normally then they will surely see no need to send me for a growth scan.
Baby was head down at the 19 week scan but I know they are still mobile at this point so it means nothing.. when do they become immobile?
I only ask because I have a funny feeling she has turned since last week as it feels like all the kicks are very down low, but im not sure if its her arms making the 'kicks' is that makes sense.. Sorry for the stupid question but it just suddenly dawned on me that what if they dont discover she is breech until birth (if she was breech of course) xx

I have a lot more appointments this time keeping a closer eye on the size of the baby.. At my last appt (29weeks) baby moved from breech to transverse while I was on the bed getting measured! The week before at my 4d scan she had been head down with her head to my left... They dont tend to worry till right near the end anyway x

I think eli turned at the last minute, I didnt have a choice but to give birth breech as his foot was coming out
Oh wow, he was born breech!? How was it. I have told myslef no matter what I am having a natural birth.. unless there is a massive danger to baby ofc xx
