I had my 36 week appointment yesterday and before the doctor checked me he said he expected my cervix to be closed. Well to his and my surprise I am already dilated to a 2 and 80% effaced! However, the baby is still breech. The doctor said he thought he was frank breech, with his legs up and butt down. He said there is still a chance he will turn but with the position he is in it is more difficult for them to turn than if he was just feet down. So, I am starting to prepare myself for a c-section.

Does anyone have any experience with frank breech babies turning this late??

Effacement is the thinning out of the cervix.
