No story really. I'm not even into comics or video games. lol Not sure why I picked it.
And welcome to everyone else!
Sunnie-that makes sense. Your body just might have been ready and the epo gave it an extra kick.
hcorona-http://natural-fertility-info.com/fertility-evening-primrose-oil.html You don't want to use it till the end, if you're going to try it. You can do oral/vag or both. It "should" only work if your body is ready, not push it into labor like pitocin. But there are some women who still avoid it, at least internal, since it does change the hormones. It may have a different hormone effect vaginally, and just help ripen the cervix.
It so is. Do you know if she was in that position prior to labor?
My ds2 was facing correctly one day and the next morning when I went into labor, he was turned op for birth. Didn't expect that at all. My mw says it was a position that I was in, but recently when I looked at books showing optimal positions to get baby ready, he shouldn't have turned. But he did for some reason. I was either hands/knees or squatting, until his heart rate showed distress then semi reclined in bed to push him out.
I don't know. I never expected ds to turn like that and I was in the right positions for birth. I'm starting now some of the spinning babies positions to help this baby engage correctly, but some days I don't know why when I think of ds birth. I'm wondering if there is something I did prior to hand/knee and squatting that turned him and then he couldn't turn any more.
