I keep talking about my new MWs response to my birth story - she just gave me such insight. I'm so blessed by this -<br><br>
Anyhow, DS was OP, a week late. We transferred to the hospital to a very trusted OB. He felt DS was experiencing too much stress, and I agreed with him for the c-sec.<br><br>
The MW's theory is that DS probably settled into the OP position weeks before the due date, decided it was nice and comfy, and that contributed to being a week late. Meanwhile, he's adding weight and growing that big head - all leading up to a horrendous labor with his head getting stuck.<br><br>
Her very good news to me was that having gone to 10 with DS means I'll labor like a second-time vaginal birth mommy. Her words - "nothing was wasted."<br><br>
I just thought that was so interesting about position affecting the start of labor. Believe me, I'm going to be on hands and knees the whole last month of pregnancy.

Yes, this is what I say, too.<br><br>
Um....41 wks is not 'late', particularly not for a first time mom; and some moms always go to 41wks or beyond because 'oven temperatures vary' <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
Were you induced at 41 wks last time?<br><br>
Well anyway--no, nothing was wasted, not at all <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> And no 2 pregnancies or births are alike...most likely all will be different next time.

I agree, no two births are alike! However, before you spend morning noon and night on all 4's, some women just have posterior babies. I did the all 4's, no reclining, and had a perfectly positioned baby all the way through pregnancy and most of my labor and then he turned posterior. Just saying..... But goodluck to you! And I do hope your next one stays anterior!

All 3 of mine were OP, DD1 turned during labour (unnecessary induction at 40 weeks), DD2 turned during labour at 43 weeks and DD3 turned during labour at 40 weeks.............. Apparently I am prone to OP babies due to my being extra stretchy because of my EDS.
