Alright the midwife came for a visit and the baby in in a really weird position. Last night my dh and I DTD to try and get things started (this is #4 and I'm going on 4 days late. Not a biggie, I know, just surprising...). I don't think the baby appreciated ti much because now his or her head is no longer deep in my pelvis but rather positioned with the face looking up towards my ribs almost and the head is in the left sideof my pelvis. The butt and back are on my right side, with the butt right udner my ribs and the back and butt are kind of posterior - I'm feeling way too many limbs and feet on my left side.

I am trying ice packs to move the head and back, stickign my butt in the air while my shoulders are on the floor to try and bring the baby back a bit and reposition the head, hands and knees, and stroking the baby in the direction I want its back to move.

Once baby is once again head down (straight!) and in the right position I'm going to do a lot of squatting.

Is there anything else I can try? Its position is worrying to me.
