Anyone with any info/experience on this? I feel pretty strongly that my baby's PERSISTENT posterior position is holding up true labor. I've been having all the prelabor signs for weeks, and have had multiple false starts, complete with diarrhea, bloody show, and regular contractions, but it always dies off after a few hours. I cannot seem to get this baby unstuck, no matter how many tips I try from spinningbabies. I figure, if i'm wrong and she's just not ready to come, there's no harm in having her in a better positon... but there could be very real harm from NOT going into labor when i'm supposed to(think deteriorating placenta, large baby, induction, cascade of interventions... you know the drill), so I'd really like to do what I can. So First of all, does anyone have any good info/articles/experience on prodromal labor caused by poor positioning? I can't find a lot of info, bc most of the mainstream articles i'm finding basically say the baby will come when they're ready and they'll probably turn in labor... But I know lots of midwives and doulas have claimed that drawn out prelabors are often associated with poor positioning. Secondly, any tips on what I can do? I think i'm going to try a chiropractor on Monday, but if there's anything i can do over the weekend, it would really be helpful. Thanks!
