Had my last appointment with OB today and found that bub is still breech and so my CS has been confirmed for 2 weeks time.
I'm relieved that I finally have an answer re which way baby is facing and what is going to happen, but a bit sad that my VBAC wont go ahead. It is also unlikely that I will be able to try VBAC for any other babies either
Just wanted to say a quick thanks to everyone who has responded to my whingy posts over the last few weeks/months - EB is great for getting those supportive pick-me-ups

Have just seen your thread.
Sorry to hear you won't be getting your VBAC, it is so sad that so many Drs/OBs aren't willing to deliver breech babies vaginally
I had a c/s with my daughter, as she was also breech. I regret it immensely. The whole c/s went smoothly & perfectly, and recovery was easy. I have nothing against c/s, it's just that since then I have read so much and found that VB are just as safe (which I knew beforehand). I have even had 4 midwives & an OB say to me in the last few months (one being tonight), that they can't believe I wasn't given the opportunity to try a VB with her. I had her in Canberra, and am now living in a country town in NSW, they are so much more open to a breech delivery here.
Anyway, I hope your baby has either turned for you so you get to have a VBAC. Or your C/S goes smoothly. All the best!
