Had my 37 week check today. My doctor took me over to the ultrasound room to check the baby's position. The baby has turned head down for now. He reminded me that doesn't mean he'll stay that way. I'll have another quick ultrasound next week to see where the head is. I'm also dialated to a one. Nothing to get exctied about.<br><br>
Joking my doctor told me I cannot go into to labor this sunday because he will be glued to his tv. My doctor/hospital are in Wisconsin and the Packers are playing hence the instructions not to go in labor on Sunday. I bet all his patients were getting that speech this week!

That is great news!<br><br>
I live in NY, our best friends are Giants fans, and my DH and I are from Wi (me from GB) so needless to say I had better not go into labor this weekend either!

Big congrats. Is this your 1st? Be sure and use optimal fetal positioning to help insure his head down position.<br><br>

No-this is my second. Thanks for the link-I'm going to check it out. This baby really needs to stay head down so I can avoid a c-section!<br><br>
Maybe this baby will wait until Super Bowl sunday-especially if the Packers were playing. That would be funny, but my doctor would probably never let me live it down!!

I am so glad that I am not due until after the playoffs and superbowl... I love the football, my dd runs around saying Touchdown!...and Sack!... even though my team is out I will be intensely focused for the next few weeks. It's been an exciting year in the NFL.<br><br>
Good Luck Ladies.

Yay! Great news about the baby being head down. Hopefully s/he stays that way!<br><br>
I now have permission to go into labor on any Sunday since the Cowboys are out of the running for the Superbowl. There goes my predicition for having a Superbowl baby!

Yep Wisconsin people are a bit crazy about the Packers, they are getting sold out of Packer merchandise because of the big game on Sunday. Funny that your dr told you that. You can't be all that far from me either in Madison. Yay! for the baby not being breech, that's awesome!

Congratulations on the good news!<br><br>
Do you think you did anything specific to help the baby turn?<br><br>
I am 33 weeks and the baby is breech. I have been to a chiropractor a few times and have done some inversions to help. No change so far.

I'm 34 weeks and in the same situation. Some things I've heard from my MW and others...<br><br>
Don't sit crossing your legs. It constricts your pelvis.<br><br>
Sit on the birth ball whenever you can. It opens the pelvis.<br><br>
Go swimming, I think with your belly down? I'm not a swimmer so I didn't pay attention to that one.<br><br>
Ask your chiro about the Webster technique.<br><br>
Start looking for an acupuncturist who has experience turning babies.
