Operation baby come out has commenced. - Page 2
I tried the ice up top, inversion and the bridging thing, and felt some kind of tumbling last night but i still feel hard both up top and internally. So just don't know! Thinking of going to the pool this afternoon...
I am supposed to have an ecv tomorrow, waiting for the OB office to get back to me. As much as my mind is just racing all around, I know I need to reign it in and try and calm down to give this ecv a chance to work.
It really works!
My baby was transverse at 35 weeks and after trying a few of the exercises, has been head down ever since.
I've also heard playing music down around your pubic bone or vagina can help... the baby will want to hear it and will sometimes turn spontaneously.
Pelvic rocks help too...
Another thing to try:
Go on all fours on the bed and then bend your arms down and rest your head on your folded arms so your fanny is in the air...
the gravity really helps!
I replied on your thread in the regular pregnancy forum - but homeopathic pulsatilla is a good choice. Regular dosing for turning is 30c potency 5 tablets 3 x day for 4 days, but in your case you might want to look up one dose of 200c potency. This can generally be found at any HFS. Good luck!
my first birth was not the birth i imagined, but DS is very bit the kid i imagined! It really helped me to focus on the ends rather than the means, in other words, birth wasnt as planned, but i got a healthy baby at the end.
So baby is complete breech but angled to the right, so we have already a circular path to follow. I will be in trendelenberg. I am 37w6d tomorrow so really running out of time.
OB suggested being in that fanny up position tonight, going to try spinning babies tonight too. And a glass of wine ;)
If attempts to turn fail, then the OB is fine with me going into labor breech at least so I can have the 'spontaneous' labor experience as well as at least some of the hormonal readiness that comes with it.
I had one stuck little girl (we think her knees were up by her ears blocking her rotation) but I always wondered of the ECV would work better if mom was either in trendelenberg (slanted slightly head down while on back) or on hands and knees. I also guess how much fluid you have makes a huge difference and I had little.
I never thought of that, but yeah! Why don't we do them with mom on hands and knees? Maybe b/c of monitoring?
After having 4 people with their full weight on my body to get him to turn, I feel hands and knees would be pretty difficult to get that much pressure from.
This is definitely not what I wanted, but Slowly coming to terms with everything.
