Well, all my antsy-ness may have backfired on me. Baby turned from the happy little LOA position he's been in for weeks and weeks to ROA/ROT during an intense acupuncture treatment last night. Harrumph! The treatment was bringing on contrax and he was moving around sooo much, and suddenly flip!, he whipped over to the other side! Midwife confirmed it this morning.
Maybe he knows what he's doing, I think.
Before he switched I was having this very repetititive kicking up under my right ribs with contrax and kept thinking he might be having a hard time getting into my pelvis that way??? Ugh, I don't know. Lots of hands and knees pelvic rocking and some pulsatilla for me. Kind of a drag though.
DH and I are really trying to get an attitude adjustment and it seems to be working some. I am still -1 station, 1 cm, 10-20% effaced but very soft and squishy cervix. So we are wrapping our heads around the idea we still have awhile to wait. Prodromal contrax got us all hyped up over the past several days, but they have dwindled to hardly anything today. Still, we had a great hike this morning and are trying to think of our due date being more like Sept 2, even though that is 42 weekish.
Was anybody else's baby ROA/ ROT at 40+ weeks? Comments? Advice?
