    I hope he comes in a very timely fashion for you...so you can avoid any kind of induction. It's got to be nice when they behave for you.

    Hopefully all those contractions are making some changes for you and your little man makes an earlier appearance for you!

    Sorry to hear you were feeling down yesterday, hope things are going better today! I actually laughed out loud when I read you want to have a baby to get some rest. I totally get it, though.

    Sad, isn't it!?

    Last night I didn't fall asleep until 2 am, thanks to more contractions. He was quite low, I could feel his head grinding against my pelvic floor, and that was prompting the contractions. But when I woke up this morning he had shifted a bit and wasn't as low anymore, and the contractions had mostly tapered off. It was a little annoying and disheartening, but there's not much else I can do.

    Later today I have more massage and another pelvic adjustment, my doula also recommended doing some pelvic tilts on all fours and some rebozo work to help him settle in a better position, and I think I may work on that this evening and see if it helps. It can't hurt, anyway, and in the past my prodromal labor has always been a sign of malpositioning in varying degrees.

    I have NO idea where this impatience and grumpiness incoming from, I've never been so ready to be done. I don't feel depressed, really, just frustrated. I don't want to go two or three more weeks feeling like this, so I either need to find some happy waiting place in my head or he needs to make up his mind and descend, already!

    What position is he in, Taryl? I've heard great things about rebozo! Your midwife does it? I'd love to hear how that goes.

    Awww hugs Taryl. I think the doulas recommendations are a really good idea. I hope it helps. Prodromal labor is never fun. Hang in there.

    Is the rebozo where the baby is lifted up out of the pelvis and allowed to re-settle, hopefully in a better position? Hope he gets situated nicely for labor, Taryl. L was rather big (9 pounds) and I think you and I are similar in height...I don't know if it's on option for you, but being able to swim a bit at the end of pregnancy was wonderful. Not only because of the weightless aspect, but having my belly down in the water was easier than pelvic tilts on land and seemed to have the same positive positioning effect.

    Is it also time for a new 38 week belly pic?

    oh a massage and pelvic adjustment sound great...hope they help ease the discomfort from baby's position! hope you are able to hang tough until he arrives (and for your sake, hope he comes sooner rather than later)

    Yes, the rebozo techniques involve several different effects, depending on what is being done, including lifting the belly to relieve some pressure and help the baby resettle. There is also a sifting/shimmying technique that can cause a lot of relief to overstressed muscles and during back labor. One more technique involve laying on a wrap with it under your butt and a helper standing down by your feet and gently pulling up and toward their shoulders. It stretches your lower back and compresses the hips slightly, giving a lot of relief in back labor.

    I could go swimming, technically, at a public pool, but at is point it is more trouble than it is worhh. With the next baby the girls should be enrolled in regulars swim lessons, so access will be more convenient.

    In terms of positioning, I can get him laying really low if I do cow/cat tilts standing, or shake my hips back and forth, shimmy/salsa style. It really settles him in there. The only downside is that he won't stay down! But I am making a conscious effort to get him as low as I can for as long as I can to encourage dilation and effacement. And in the meantime, while it looks a little silly to do, my girls love joining in on my 'dancing'

    Yesterday's chiropractic and massage was very helpful, but a little eventful!

    The prenatal massage helped loosen everything up and alleviate some of the thigh, hip, and back pain, which was fabulous. My normal chiropractor was out sick with her kids, so her husband was the only one on staff there to adjust. He is also Webster certified, but MAN I see a difference in their techniques! Hers is more gentle and progressive, he's a bit more physical, methodical, and insistent on getting things to move. For my particular issues, Dr. Jen's technique is more suited. Still, Dr. Charlie did fine and I definitely needed the adjustment.

    The eventful part was AFTER the adjustment. I was getting up off the drop table, took one step and went from fine to HORRIBLE pain in my right hip. I was totally hobbled. Dr. Charlie noticed and had me lay back down. Apparently, in taking one step I managed to throw the entire adjustment out of alignment This is apparently a new record, even for a pregnant lady with a lot of relaxin circulating. So he readjusted me and slooooowly inverted the table so I didn't tweak anything on trying to get up (giving the adjustment more time to settle).

    This would have been fine, except on the way out to the car I managed to put it out AGAIN. The kids were hungry and tired so I just said 'screw it' and got in the car anyway. Through normal movement the rest of the day I managed to get most of it back in alignment and now I feel fine. But three malalignments in the space of five minutes? That's impressive by any standards. It's not the type of title I generally aspire to, but oh well

    In about two hours I am off to my OB appointment for 38 weeks, I'll give an update when I get back. In the meantime, I'm going to go take a belly picture just for kicks, since one was requested so nicely and I am presentable enough for one
