~~~gentle birthing vibes to you mama. you can do this. your body has the wisdom it needs to accomplish this. your worries don't matter, your mind can step aside. your body has this one under control. release and open...it's all there. your baby, too, has the wisdom to assist with this process. you could let the baby know that as you remember the strength you carry inside to face this, so can she/he face this head on. she/he will come out just fine.
i hope you don't mind...just a reminder, maybe to remind you of your innate strength and abilities, or to remind you of the headset you've had...quote:"My first unassisted birth was transverse. At the very end of her birth right before my urges to push she just flipped and went head down. My DH and I both saw the shape of my stomach change. It happened really, really fast! Made me catch my breath! She was born soon after. Weighed 10 lbs 8 oz
I used to feel the hiccups over in my right side where her head was. That is a good indicator of where baby's head is. With this one I feel them all right down low. Straight down. If she hadn't turned I would have had DH reach in and turn her. But, really I had full faith that she would come out the right way. I had communicated to her during the pregnancy that she could be in any position the entire time of pregnancy and birthing but needed to be head down to come out. She listened. Another cool thing is she was born on the day I asked her to. She is still very intuitive and sensitive.
I think your baby and body will work together to make things go ok. Just ask your baby. I find that the baby feels apart of my own consciousness while in utero and it is very easy to send them thoughts and get thoughts back from them."
there have been a couple links in the last week to birth affirmations, maybe they would lead you where you want to go? one was there after clicking on a link for belly pics.
best of luck...dream sweet soft opening dreams, your babe will soon be in your arms, nursing...
