Hippy My little guy was actually head down along my right side at my 30 week visit, 5 days before my preterm labor scare landed me in the hospital!! He's remained transverse with his head at my right hip, knees and feet poking at my left ever since. I saw the new chiropractor again today (will see her Friday as well) to have the Webster technique done. She seems to think it will be 1-2 more times before he turns. She performs several adjustments on me and works on putting pressure on my sacrum (apparently to help widen the lower uterine segment, making it more appealing to baby to position head down) and relaxing ligaments in my pelvis, both front and back. Not familiar with myofacial release either I am willing to continue twice a week and wait and see!! Research I have done suggests it is fairly rare for baby to be transverse at this point and while possible, unlikely he'll turn on his own to head down. Stats I've seen are that maybe 5% of all babies are anything other than head down by 33-34 weeks. And at term, 4% remain in positions other than head down. So, I guess I have about a 20% chance he'll turn on his own. Stats for Websters are great, with 80-90% success. Fingers crossed!! Lots of positive energy and visualizations!!
Hapersmion. Sounds like a lot going on. Glad you had a fun vacation!!
Vaquita I agree, you need to do what you are most comfortable with, not what pleases the most people, and have options. This is all about you, mama.
Meks It will come to you!! Frustrating though it may be, you'll know when you see him/her
Sila It may help. I'd give it a try (changing up the timing).
It is so exciting that we're all getting close and I love seeing the photos on the belly thread!! My belly button is quite flat and just weird right now. I expect it will pop out some in the coming weeks.
Wishing you all a Happy Monday!!
