Anyone else have a previous posterior labor experience they are really hoping to avoid repeating? I was in labor for 3 days with DS before we finally transferred to the hospital and ended up with a c-section. I had a great midwife and very good hospital care, we just couldn't get him to turn. The last few days this baby was definitely ROA which is how DS was for the last part of my pregnancy as well (ROA babies have to rotate through posterior before they can get out). I've felt really good about my VBAC chances, but with each day the baby stayed ROA I could feel myself getting more and more discouraged (even though I know 30 weeks is way too soon to freak out over positioning). The thing is that I did spinning babies and everything else I could last time, so it's hard not to feel like there's not much I can do about positioning. Most midwives seem to say that all you can do is pelvic rocks, sit up straight, etc.
I did find one great resource today that made me feel a lot better though, that there are things to DO if the baby is persistently ROA or posterior late in pregnancy: http://www.midwiferytoday.com/articles/paininback.asp
And the best is that it ends with this: "A word of caution: Women who have had caesareans due to posterior labors, or who have had vaginal delivery after long posterior labors, often are in advanced labor before they realize they are in labor with a subsequent baby that is not in a posterior position. This has led to many interesting and amusing situations!"
Here's hoping! :) I'm planning a hospital birth with midwives this time, but have a midwife doula as well just in case I go super fast at home.
