Moxa was the only thing we didn't do. It is $75 per session and we just didn't have the money to spend. From what our OB said, he doesn't think she would have turned on her own, at any rate. It took a good bit to get her turned. We are estimating her to be near 10lbs, which is what I expected.
WaitingforKiddos - Yes, it was pretty uncomfortable. I am a HypnoBirthing practitioner and I used relaxation techniques and breathing to get me through. OB kept saying, "MAN! You are TOUGH!" DH couldn't be there because he had an interview, but my mom came. She said it looked like he was pushing really, REALLY hard. I have an anterior placenta and at one point he couldn't feel baby's head because it was behind my placenta. He kept going over the same path on my stomach - from fundus around the side, sweeping down toward my pelvis. Each pass felt like he was cutting me open. However, with the relaxation and breathing, I managed the pain very well. I let out a few grunts, but found if I were quiet, obviously, I would have less tension in my abdomen. Today, I am pretty sore, which he said to expect. My belly just feels bruised. I did have contractions for the rest of the day yesterday, too. Good luck and stay relaxed. That is the best advice I can give!
