posterior tendencies in pregnancy

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My baby has posterior tendencies. I have read the spinning babies website and am doing all of it. Going for a mayan abdominal massage on tuesday and am hoping that might help. I have a roomy pelvis but am nervous about birthing with baby posterior as my babies do have large heads. I am hoping he'll just turn in labor but he's already engaged. Any advice or experience here?

Jenny both my kids have always been ROA or ROT at the start of labour with their heads nice and engaged, and have turned during labour. This baby also had ROA/ROT tendencies but seems to have settled OA/ROA just in the last day or two.

What was your experience birthing your other kids? Just wondering. Sounds like you're on the right track.

The others were always pretty much transverse. I don't remember ever just feeling back. I could always feel feet, but I think more on one side- this baby, it's like his legs are crossed and I can feel kicks right in front.

This babe on my boob turned OP at 40 wks, she was well engaged and I couldn't turn her with spinning babies techniques.
The back labour hurt, I hadn't experienced that with DS but her position didn't affect duration of labour. She turned right at the end.
Small baby though, 6lbs14, 34 cm head.

I tried everything to get mine to turn. She did a few times and then would turn right back. She has a large head and was born posterior at home with no complications. It was definitely my hardest (of three) labors, especially the pushing. But it was okay and she was 8 lbs 4 oz with a giant head (37 cm). I hope yours turns but if it doesn't it's still doable.

Mine keeps turning from ROA to posterior. Ds did the same thing, but was LOA to posterior. Ds was born anterior and rather quickly, so I don't know when he turned, but I didn't have back labor or anything. I'm hoping this one spins right out too and I don't have to deliver a posterior baby.
