Baby's Position - Page 3

post #41 of 68

This babe is still holding strong to it's breech position.  It hasn't turned in over 2 weeks.  My midwife and I had a good talk about it though and even if this baby stays breech I can still have my homebirth :).  I am getting acupuncture and will be doing inversions and what-not, but at least I can relax now knowing I don't have to worry about battling a c-section at the hospital!  I really can't handle anymore conflict and stress in my life right now, so this was weighing on me a bit.

Hurray Sarah!!  One less thing to worry about!  :)

That is awesome Sarah!! :) I had a breech at home almost 3 years ago.

 

This little one is definitely head down now! And I hope he/she stays put. I'll fiind out for certain Saturday the position, but from hiccups and movements, I can tell that baby is head down.

Sarah, how awesome that you can still have a homebirth :) Really nice to hear about some progressive thinking w/breech babies...

 

Our little one is still apparently head down, although still above my pelvis, my muscles have definitely relaxed and I'm 'carrying' low now... so it's all nice & squishy down there for when baby decides to settle in until birth :)

My midwife told me the same things about my homebirth.  I was glad.  So far, this little girl has been head down since 26 weeks; I hope she stays that way....

Or you could get a midwife that knows how to deliver breech! A friend of mine recently had a breech baby and the birth went wonderfully. The practitioner just needs to be trained on how to do it (which most OBs aren't).

 

 

I was sad to hear at my 29 week appointment that Twig (baby's nickname) is posterior. Peanut (daughter's nickname) was posterior, but we thought she had flipped, so we didn't do any spinning babies stuff. That birth was HARD. She said that the babe has plenty of time to turn though. She also suggested sitting on a kitchen chair turned around backwards while I watch TV, leaning on the back of the chair. I'd been sitting in the tailored sitting position, but hadn't actually leaned forward yet, so I'm trying that.

Do the spinning babies stuff, it really works!!  Especially do the inversions when you feel the baby is awake... You can actually feel her shifting in the womb.  And hang out on hands and knees or leaning on a yoga ball while watching TV, reading, etc. so that your womb makes a "sling" for the baby.  Good luck!

I just wanted to check in with those of us whose babes were not in the right position yet.  Last week, my baby was spending a lot of time kicking at the top of the womb, but for some reason this week the LO is now kicking way down low again.  I am 30 weeks now and trying to coax baby into the right position!

post #49 of 68

As far as I know, I'm still transverse.  Still not all that concerned yet, though it would be nice to be a little more comfortable than I am currently.

still breech/transverse.  bah.  i've spent this whole pregnancy doing all the "right" things to assure a good position.  no luck so far.

a month and a half later I'm in the same spot!

I thought mine was transverse by the way it feels to me, but it turns out that the parts I feel are the butt and legs, and the baby's head is down! I hope that's the case with some of you, too!

I wish!  Unfortunately, it was confirmed by the MW.  Hoping it changes by my 32 wk appt.

post #54 of 68

My babe has finally turned head down!  We did some acupunture and some spinning babies techniques ;)

post #55 of 68

still breech here too. Very persistent in staying that way too! The baby moved to vertex for all of 8ish hours this past week and then went right back to breech again. He/She must really enjoy nuzzling my ribs with his or her head.

My baby must be quite low... I don't feel any rib kicks! Bum is over on my left (usually), halfway between belly button and xiphoid process (bottom of sternum), kicks are out to one side (usually to the right) but definitely not at my ribs. Everyone tells me I am carrying shockingly low for 32 weeks, and baby's hiccups feel like they are in my butt.

This is pretty much exactly what I'm experiencing, too. Not sure about hiccups, though. Maybe that's what I'm feeling when I think it's fingers?

 

I don't feel kicks as much as stretching legs that make my belly stick out in funny lumps. Some kicks, but more of the stretches.

 

With the baby so low, it's really making my pelvis sore!

No rib kicks here, baby is in a pike (L shape)position so all movement is towards the middle. Keep feeling lots of stretching too

YES!  I get this every couple of days...a huge "I just woke up" stretch with arms all the way out on my left side and legs stretched on my right side.  Every once in a while I can tell babe is turning because I get the stretch and then a little booty shoves out front.
 

 

post #60 of 68

Just wondering if anyone else is using an exercise ball to sit on while on the computer like spinning babies recommends?  I bought a medium sized ball (65cm), and I am way too low, but that's surprising to me as I'm only 5'7"...
