Why won't this baby decide which position it wants?!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ugh. My last app. we confirmed the head was down. But ALL day long today I've been dealing w/ "some" part of the baby pressing up on my side, like balled up. I think it's the head but I'm not sure. Man, it's SOOO uncomfortable!! Usually when the baby moves into this position I can barely talk, it hurts so bad...this time it's just uncomfortable. My DH can usually move the baby for me but right now he has a client over so I can't really have him help me right now, so I'll just suffer and hope s/he moves soon!! "Get your head back DOWN there baby!!" PLEEEAASSE!!!! Well who knows, maybe s/he is just pressing its little butt up against my side! What a terd!

Sometimes when I am really uncomfortable I use the hands and knees position, or the yoga child's pose. It can really take the pressure off. Hope you feel better soon.

The baby presses his/her butt out of my side sometimes and it's really uncomfortable. I hope that's what it is for you!!

I agree with Max, when I get uncomfortable (when baby spins a little more posterior) I do the hands and knees thing, with my tailbone tucked in and he spins back 'round to anterior and it feels a LOT better!

My baby is DEFINITELY head down but he pushes his butt into my right side and it is VERY uncomfortable. Hopefully this is the case with your dc too!

well at least im not the only one! ya, i usually try the hands n knees position but yesterday it just WAS NOT working. today i feel much better though. i think s/he found it's "right" spot during the night. HOPEFULLY s/he is still/back head down..it's hard to tell w/ this baby for some reason.
