I'm 39 weeks, and the baby flipped transverse about an hour ago. What do I do?<br>
I'm currently on my hands & knees hanging over my birthing ball.<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying">

*hugs* Don't stress out mama! I'm sure you've perused spinningbabies.com, just do that and continue with the birth ball, and make sure you have good posture when you're not going that stuff. If she can turn now she can turn back!<br><br>
Sending turning vibes your way!

Emmy, my baby flipped the other day, and then flipped back a few hours later. I spent a lot of time sitting backwards on my dining room chairs, and doing pelvic rocks. I think my babe decided s/he wasn't comfy and made it their mission to get back in position for the rest of the day :LOL<br><br>
Best of luck, and try not to freak out yet. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
OH! And lay on your left side for a while, too, but make sure you don't fall asleep and wake up on your back <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

<a href="http://www.spinningbabies.com" target="_blank">www.spinningbabies.com</a> Has a lot of great information.<br><br>
Also, can you get to a swimming pool? You can put fun noodles or similar under your arms and then under you hips. hang there on your belly like that.<br><br>
sorry, i'm nak otherwise, i'd say more. but, just do your best to relax and send good thoughts to your baby. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Something easier than the ironing board, since it is kind of hard to get on and off, is find some steps in your house (Or somebody else's). Get on your hands and knees at the top, then walk your hands down the steps a few steps so you can get inverted that way. Stay there for a while and then you can just walk yourself back up.<br><br>
Never too late to get a chiropractor to check Webster or Bagnell as well!

Binding your belly is good. Also, crawling, hands and knees while moving hips side to side...

You probably already know this, but dont sit in a reclined computer chair all day like i did. I really think that is part of what caused my posterior baby. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
hope it gets better!<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
