    I'm having this same posterior problem . I'm going to try getting on all fours. The chiropractor is a good idea though. I hope your baby turns around.

    How do you tell if baby is posterior? I hope you can get the baby to turn back again!

    Laura, I wanted to say thanks for the advice on my itchy skin and hypnobabies you metioned on Alicia's lodge. It made me feel better. I thought I was doing something wrong.

    Those ornery babies - I have ones that like to twist around too and it's no fun. Here's to hoping the baby STAYS anterior once they get moved again. Posterior labor = no fun for mommy!

    www.spinningbabies.com The short answer though, is that if you feel legs and arms hitting the front of your belly, instead of a big solid back, then the baby is posterior.

    Clara Helen
    6 lbs. 10 oz., 21.5"
    Born at home at 11:57 pm on June 27, 2008
    Tons of dark hair

    I had a long and strange labor. It started Thursday evening at 5 and continued through the night. At 8:30 in the morning it totally stopped (6 cm). I rested throughout the day. We went out to lunch. I napped some more. Then at 6 things started again. Clara finally was able to rotate into a good position. My pelvic injury from when I slipped on ice in February resulted in quite a lot of back pressure for me, even when she was in a good position.

    I think it was around 10 that I had my midwife break my water both to keep Clara in a good position (she kept turning posterior) and to help my pressure waves which had started to space out again. I was 7 or 8 cm again with a posterior cervix (like with Leah). That did the trick! It was pretty intense for the last part and I had my mw hold my cervix in front of Clara's head so I could push her through, which required a lot of concentration on my part. I remember commenting to my doula something like "I don't know why anyone would choose to do this without hypnosis" because it was intense even if it wasn't painful. Once Clara moved past my cervix it was only another 5 minutes before she was out.

    Matt was very hands on for the last couple of hours since the back pressure was just constant. I had him pressing on my sacrum, which helped so much. My doula was wonderful. She helped so much with helping Clara get into a good position. My midwife was great as always, too.

    Clara took a little time transitioning once she was out due to a creative wrapping of her cord around her body. She pinked up after a little stimulation and is doing well now. I'm feeling pretty well except for my back. I had another appointment with my chiropractor scheduled for Monday to fix my pelvis/baby positioning issue and I think I'll keep it to help my back. My chiro spoke to my doula on the phone to give her specific instructions to help me during the birth, which I thought was great.

    Overall things went pretty well and we're happy to have her here!
