I am due in a couple of weeks. I just got confirmation that the baby does finally seem to be head down. I don't know if it was the exercises or the Pullsatilla or both, but doc thinks he is head down. (I have a difficult time telling and I suspect that the placenta in front makes it even harder). He isn't down too far and I would like to see that head engage, but in the right position. I have had two posterior births (came out eyes up) and it is something I sincerely want to avoid this time. I realize that subsequent babies may not engage until just before birth, and maybe I am just anxious to make sure he is going to be in the right position that I want to get him positioned and engaged. I am not about to do any squatting right now unless I knew he was positioned right, but I was curious if some walking right after being on my hands and knees would be a good idea? Any ideas? I have heard that Kali Carb is good for posterior presentations, but I am not sure this baby is or will be posterior, I just know that with an anterior placenta and 2 previous posterior births, the likelihood is up there...

Have you tried chiro care to help balance your hips? My babe was sunny side up for ever until last week when I went in for an adjustment. She (He?) is finally in position and actually engaged after the chiro care.

Might be worth looking into if you haven't already.

I also do/did the spinningbabies.com suggestions of hands knees position and creating a hammock with my stomach vs my back. etc...

Walking is good. Chiropractic is good. Avoid reclining. Sit leaning forward, or tailor sit, or use an exercise ball. Stay off your back.
