I cant believe it. After chiropracter visits, moxatherapy (accupressure) and not one but TWO attempts at external version (way way way intense) we just succeeded in flipping the baby. I am THRILLED. But also incredulous.
Congrats!!!!! Baby you stay head down! Do squats so he/she can get nice and comfy in your pelvis!

Congrats!!! And I think she is due in just over a week.

Yay, Frannie! We were all rooting for you. You are a hard working mama. I think it's so great to see how our babies will work WITH us even while they are still in the womb, sometimes. Sometimes they won't and that's the same that is true for the outside, too, eh? But, what an awesome experience to have her turn!
ITA with hildare. wrap the top of your fundus every single day so she'll stay down.
Yep, I am 39 weeks tomorrow. it was insanely late to still try a baby flip. But we all worked as such a team - two midwives, my baby, myself, and my husband. It was amazing. I am looking forward to birth now :)
I JUST got back from the midwife, a paranoid visit just to check that that baby is still down. Baby is, and head is starting to engage. I think I can really relax this weekend.
Thanks for all your support mamas! I think positive thinking had a BIG influence on this miracle, so thank you ALL.
