Oh, baby is in a good position. He switches from LOA to ROA. It's the fact that he doesn't seem to be engaged into the pelvis that worries me. Also, I haven't had any sort of crampiness which seems to me that he's not really putting pressure on my cervix. I don't know why, but I get a sense he can't get into the pelvis, even though he's in the right position.
I haven't had chiro care, I'm a little nervous about it to be honest.
is there a possibility that your doctor is wrong about the dates?
Natural prostaglandins and hammock the baby in your belly while on all fours so your baby's spine will be inline with your naval, baby's back to mama's belly is what started labor for me.
I kind of get what your saying. I worried about this with my 10lb 5oz daughter. She was 2.5 weeks late and I had zero pain during labor. I felt weird but positively no pain and I was 9cm. At that time the MW ruptured the membranes which triggered an involuntary precipitous birth - a big no no when you're not fully dilated.
A bigger baby would seem to me more pain. That wasn't the case in my experience.
My 11 lber had trouble engaging, until I got into a swimming pool and essentially floated on hands and knees. Then he pulled up, shifted and engaged way more deeply. He was born about 36 hours later.
And I would absolutely trust your instincts. Do you feel like you need to be induced?
Chaotic mama to 5 plus a bonus one on the way.
