Yeah I just know it made my first labor really really long. Some women can deliver posterior no problem, but I don't think my body likes it one bit!
You could always ask your chiro whether they're familiar with the technique too. Just because they're not certified, doesn't mean they haven't heard of it.
DS was born sunnyside up. The labor was night and day between him and DD. Back labor is harder IMHO. I had quick labors with both kids though so it won't necessarily cause a longer labor. Have you checked out the Spinning Babies website to get Henry to turn?
Hi, Elizabeth! Just reading through all the lodges now
So sorry you're dealing with hemorrhoids...I just got through with some myself and they are NOT FUN...I'm sure being nearly full term pregnant makes it that much worse, too! Hope they clear up for you before labor.
I'm sure you know you have time on the position thing, but it sure doesn't hurt to ask your chiro! Remember to try to avoid reclining when you're sitting, and I also just read that squatting a lot can help with posterior positioning too (not bad to get used to it for labor, either!)
Thanks ladies! I go into the midwife tomorrow...hopefully he has moved a bit. I mentioned it to the chiro yesterday and today and she said that my body was opposite of what it was yesterday. My leg alignment was completely flipped, so she thinks he moved. She never checks his position though. She said if he still hasnt budged she will try some things. She didn't mention the webster technique though.
XP from April....
Pretty boring appointment. I decided to not get my cervix checked this week....so I don't know what's going on down there. But she said he is now in the perfect position, so I just have to get him to stay that way until he's born!
Oh and I passed my GBS test! Whoohoo!
I agree with Leigh! Passing GBS & Henry in the correct position are WONDERFUL News!!!! Plus you hit 37 weeks!!!!
