It's good to have others to talk to about it. This is exactly why I started this thread. Thank you EVERYONE for sharing your stories! We moved in willingly and we have a long term plan to live on the same property...
If anyone is interested in offing their copy of BARP when you are done I would be a willing buyer. PM me.

We have put our mortgaged house on the market and have moved in with my mother. The sooner our house sells the quicker we can save nearly $2000/month toward buying someplace free and clear.

For those of you who like BARP (and for those of you who don't ) you can access many articles by Robbie Davis Floyd on her webiste. http://www.davis-floyd.com/ShowPage.asp?id=158 Really awesome stuff there , I love her
MamaRabbit, what's your current method and what's not working for you? For auditory learning I'm a big fan of writing notes, but for reading I'm more of a highlighter & jotter down of ideas kind of person. I also like lists. Lists are great, IMO, for clinical stuff, but not so great for practical ideas for the hands on stuff of midwifery. For those I change the way I read. I read a couple sentences at a time and I close my eyes to envision a scenario--I practice in...
I second Heart & Hands.
IIRC the Labor Progress Handbook recomends kneeling on one knee and putting the other one out to the side. Or something like that. I like the idea of the car ride. Can't hurt. NOTHING worked to change my baby's position. Positional changes, birth tub, car ride, waiting. I think he went from being LOA to LOP with asynclytism partly because of the way his nuchal cord was wrapped. When he finally came out he did a long arc rotation. I wonder what would/could have...
After my own asynclitic birth I looked into it a lot. I found Simkin's book The Labor Progress Handbook to be one of the most enlightening resources about asyncliticism (and fetal positioning and dysfunctional labor in general). I don't know much of anything about manually manipulating a baby into more favorable positions at all.
I am 100% certain that it was the right decision too. I'm glad to hear you are in bed taking it easy
