hi i wouldnt worry, there is still loads of time for the baby to turn round him/herself. i amost had to get baby turned last time but it was 38 wks before they even worried about it, baby did eventually turn herself.even if baby was to go head down just now, he/she could still turn around again so dont worry about that just yet x

well my little boy was breech and they were about to do the ecv and give me the meds, (salbutamol iv i think, softens the area around baby) and checked heartbeat of baby and was too high so had to have a planned section 2 weeks later. When they did that they found cord was extra long and round his neck so maybe was not right for me.
Still plenty of time to turn and and turn back, so hang in there.

My sister had one of these with her first as he was breach and she said never again! It was very painful and doesn't work in a lot of cases anyway so I don't think it's worth the pain!! Fingers crossed he will turn for you in the next couple of weeks. Make sure you do the exercises recommended for getting baby in perfect position!!
- some of these look interesting!! xxxx

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
