It's looking like this will be my third posterior baby. I'm 32+5 today.
I've spoken to my midwives about it and they're down to the guess that my pelvis is just shaped oddly and baby feels the need to be posterior. Both of my previous pregnancies had anterior placentas; this time around my placenta is posterior.
Spinning Babies isn't really working. I try not to lounge around too much. I work 10 hour shifts on my feet 5-6 days/wk, so I'm upright most of the time. Is there anything else I can do, or should I just be content with the fact that my pelvis is.. weird?
And what can I do during labor to alleviate the back pain? My first birth was a pitocin/foley catheter induction at 42 weeks and I was confined to a bed for the entire 14 hours of my labor. I was 17 and didn't know better, but baby was indeed posterior and back labor was terrible.
With my second, I had a ton of prodromal labor and it was all back labor. I went into labor shortly before my external version (DD turned breech at 39 weeks). I was dilated to a 3 or 4 and then ended up with a c-section. She was head down and posterior at first, and still posterior when she flipped breech (cartwheels in the womb, anyone?).
