I've tried to find a pool around here that's deep, but no luck. There's an aquatic center close by with an Olympic-size dive tank that's probably nearly 20 feet deep but they don't allow access to the general public for that. Our deepest public pool in town is being renovated -- go figure. I think the deepest pool I can find is 9 feet or so. I'll keep trying...

Maybe this should encourage me to get out and work in my weedy flower beds... It's finally sunny this afternoon, so I should take advantage of that.

I had my first at Tacoma General and it was a good experience. However, if I want to stick with my current mw, I have to go to St. Joe's. I've heard really good things about them and am hoping all will go well there whether I get my natural water birth or end up with a c/s.

I'm really hoping my little one just hasn't decided she's ready yet and she'll get into position as soon as she is. Meanwhile, I'll be doing headstands and moxibustion...

It never hurts to ask. Most pool supervisers/managers I've had the pleasure to know are pretty laid back.

I think 9 feet is worth a try!

Also, since you said you were still on the fence, I would like to submit this blog post for your consideration.

It was linked on my midwife's blog and made me feel better about the idea of vaginal breech when I hadn't turned.

I'm scheduled for an external version on Saturday, but I think the statistical chances of that working are something like 30-40% lower than the chiropractics working, so I'm not holding that out as "the" solution>>>>

Really? I didn't know that. I had one with my 2nd pregnancy around 38 weeks and it worked for me. He stayed put and I went on to have a normal vaginal birth.

Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Thanks for the link -- can't wait to get home from work so I can read through the site more fully. If by babe was fully breech, I think it would be easier for me to decide, but she's kind of diagonal -- a cross between breech and transverse. I'm really willing to wait for labor to start to see if it helps shift her, though. We'll see what she decides to do.

The chiropractor I'm seeing has a 90% success rate at getting babies to turn. It's supposed to be his specialty. According to what I can find online the success rate for ecv is supposed to be around 65%. I don't know how successful the particular doctor who's doing my ecv... we'll see. Dee, I hope I have the same experience as you!

Subbing, thinking this baby may be in a very similar position, will find out for sure soon.

Best to you, mama. Good positioning vibes going your way.

Yes! We had the ecv on Saturday and it worked. Took less than a minute from start to finish (the actual manipulation of the baby.) She dropped right into place Guess she just needed a nudge. Hoping she stays that way!

Good luck to others trying to get your babies to turn, too!
