What position is your baby in? - Page 2

post #21 of 61
head down,engaged and anterior.I hope it stays like that too as Ollie was born super fast sunny side up,not fun one bit!!

My ob plays guess the position with me at my appointments.He has been very impressed with my baby mapping

Head down but facing toward my right side with her back up against my left side...mw said babies in this position sometimes decide to rotate to posterior...all my babies have been posterior so she's trying to get me to do all sorts of stuff to make the baby turn. Honestly, that spinningbabies stuff doesn't do crap imo and I really don't see what the big darn deal is. I got my posterior babies out just fine. Yeah, it's better if they are LOA but it's just not something I stress over

Last appt. babe was all lined up the way the were supposed to be, this appt. the little zombie is Breech. This is in fact the first time his heartbeat was on my right hand side since the beginning. But I think with babe will move back I think he just wanted a break from the upside down world. :

She's head down and has been for awhile. 2 weeks ago she moved from my right side to my left, which has made me MUCH more comfortable. She's quite low.

I love when my baby moves around because if babe is in one spot too long, and kicks, it feels like I have an internal bruise. Ouch!

I can't tell if I'm feeling kicks, punches, or hiccups down below. No idea. But I DO know that he/she is turned posterior, arg. I just read something that said if the area around your belly button caves IN that they're posterior. Yup, that's me right now.

Baby has been head down since last month, and still was at my appointment today. I've never done anything past or present to keep them head down, thy just seem content to stay down which is fine by me since my worst fear is a breech/transverse baby resulting in a c-section.

31 1/2 weeks baby girl, breech indian style, pretty sure not frank, but she has tried both transverse directions lately as well as facing my sides, each and interior... she's working it out, swimming around.... here's to hoping for a safe vbac...

Today they're both head down.
At my scan on Monday though, A was breech.
That boy keeps flipping LOL

Head down, I am hoping he decides to stay that way!
post #31 of 61
every time the mws check me babe is ROA, but I feel like he's totally on the move. I'm sure he stays head down, but other than that I think he's flipping from side to side and stretching and scrunching again. I mostly carry him way low though... ouchy low, heavy low, make me wanna lay down a lot low.

She was breech earlier this week causing me to investigate any and all qualified folks who would do a breech vaginal delivery. 2 OBs in Los Angeles. Two!

But I saw an awesome prenatal chiro today and she flipped during the session. He's developed his own deep tissue massage technique that he does in conjunction with Webster. She flipped before the Webster. He did say it doesn't happen often and I hope she stays! Last baby was posterior and I would like to avoid that.

When I get closer to labor they also use some accupressure techniques with the goal of encouraging the cervix to ripen and dilate so that at 40 weeks - bam you are 2-3 before labor begins. Again, after last labor (posterior + broken water the whole time) I would LOVE some "free" cm!.

facing toward your right with the back on the left is LOA.

Who is your chiro? In case my little one stays in his new breech position I would love to be able to do some easy work to get him in line as we get closer. Thanks!

I'm at 32 weeks and this baby is moving all over the place still! Baby was transverse on Thursday and midwives turned the little bug and told me to walk walk walk. Didn't stay down, but I can't always tell where the little bug is exactly (butt or head????) I'm really trying not to worry as we still have time and obvee the baby has lots of room still.

JudyAU: who is your chiro?

baby girl is head down. i could definitely feel her butt against my lungs lol!!!!!
post #37 of 61
He's been head down for quite a while now, but stubbornly in ROA. But- my daughter was LOA and I still labored for 3 days with her, so "optimal positioning" didn't shorten my labor any last time.
post #38 of 61
Head up and under my right ribs just like my baby boy was 31 weeks. I know there is plenty of time to change again but I sure hope baby gets around to it soon.

Plus feet up is so much more fun to feel!

The one most uncomfortable for me :P

Actually, this baby is (most of the time) very low, definitely spends a lot of time posterior, and I think is mostly head-down or oblique/transverse. But it is REALLY early, IMO, and I'm not worrying for now, except about my comfort level.

It feels so nice in the morning after full night of lying down when the baby is NOT trying to fall out through my pelvic floor :

I have this fantasy that maybe this time I'll have an anterior baby, but my guess is that I'm in for another back-labor with a posterior babe. Like TallulahFairie I don't really see this as a big problem for me (though I certainly see how it can be for doula clients!)

DS1 was posterior for most of a 22 hour labor, came out anterior, but I'm sure turned just before or during pushing. DS2 was born posterior, after a 6.5 hour labor and only 10 minutes of pushing. Obviously, I have enough room in my pelvis for a normal sized posterior baby to come through. Back labor sucks, sure, but I don't have anything to compare it to and I've done it both times at home with no meds of any kind!

Oddly, I have never experienced back labor, ever. Go figure!

I am convinced this baby is posterior right now and making me miserable. I've sat on a birth ball, I've done cat cow stretches, NOTHING. I can feel little limbs poking me all over and my back is in a non stop spasm. KILL ME NOW.
