Last night, DH and I DTD, nothing started up, so I went to sleep. I turned onto my back when I woke up this AM and began having very very strong contractions. They were about 4 mins apart and not letting up. I got up to walk around and the same thing happened- they went away. At last weeks appt, my m/w said the baby is still very high up and to do some squats. But I feel like he's kind of "stuck" between my pelvic bone and front of my stomach. IDK how to explain it. Anyone have this type of issue with CTX? Any malpositions? Thanks ladies! PPS- I have never gone into labor on my own- first baby induced at 38 weeks (I didn't know any better) and second birth was C-sec for breach/vertex twins at 37 weeks.
My labor was something like that w/ my second. Contractions would start at noon, get closer together, be 7 min. apart by bed time & quit. They would start up after lunch every day for a week like clockwork. They weren't debilitating but fairly strong & I have no doubt they were contributing something. Labor was only 7 hours long when it began in earnest. If you feel he's stuck though, by all means get it checked out for peace of mind.
If you feel malposition is an issue, I'd recommend doing the "Miles Circuit" http://www.milescircuit.com/ Good luck to you!
My first baby was stuck the same way. She just wouldn't go down. I didn't know anything about positioning then but I know that squats didn't help at all then. I just read that doing something called a forward leaning inversion everyday can help but I don't know if that would help at ur gestation. My second child was stuck part of the way through labor so sometimes I wonder if having a tilted uterus works against me in the positioning dept. You can always try spinningbabies.com if you haven't checked them out already.
