I just had my 39 week appt today, and the midwife let me know that baby is posterior. I thought he'd settled down in an anterior position, but I was fooling myself! Send me some anterior vibes! I'm hopping on the birth ball, and laying on my left as much as I can.. and talking to my labor partner (the baby,) trying to be convincing.

Mine has been flipping between posterior and anterior for the last couple weeks. From what I understand, they can still flip pretty easily from back to front even up to and during labor. Right now I think mine is posterior again, so I have been using those tricks too. I think we still have time! My big challenge is trying not to lean back all the time when I sit, especially on the couch.

Same here. My little one has been flipping around for weeks, and I'm trying to do what I can WRT sitting properly and doing cat/cows, downward dog, etc., and I'm leaving the rest in her hands <shrug>
