    Default Belly binding?

    What do you all know about this. I know that drake tryed this while waiting for her little girl.
    I'm wondering if this is somthing I need to do. In the evening when I watch TV with DH I'll sit and bounce on my ball and if I take my hands and hold my belly up and in and I can feel his head drop and put pressure on my bladder and cervix. But it does not do it the rest of the time. I'm thinking my muscles may be a bit slack after 3 kids in 4 years and not getting as back into shape as I should have after DD2.

    Thanks for any advice.

    I did belly binding and felt just what you described. My mw had me take a twin sheet, fold it in thirds, and have someone stand behind you to help wrap. What you are trying to do is wrap it with the pressure in a way that helps aim baby's head into the pelvis. For me, it was a torque because baby was crooked, like diagonal. The sheet is long, so you are wrapping like twice or three times around. Nice and tight but don't make yourself lightheaded! I wrapped, then bounced on the ball, then later I walked outside about 30 min. MW said if I started to get a round of cxns to wrap and walk! It worked for me...he was born that night. I hope that description helps and if you have a question I will try to check this later. I hope it helps you.

    We don't own any twin sheets---could you use a moby wrap?

    I don't see why not - I asked my mw the same thing...as long as you can get it tight enough she said.

    I was wondering about the moby wrap too. My body seems to be picky about starting labor. I had lots of signs with DD2 leading up to her due date she was in a good position, then she turned OP and all the signs stopped. I think I'll try this this weekend.
