    I'm so glad your GBS test was negative and that your MW was cool with your declining the NSTs. I'm sorry about the transverse thing. It's so intimidating when it feels like your birth plans are threatened but I agree with gardenbug that you have some great options and that baby could flip without any interventions.

    I'm glad you're feeling more confident about trying the spinningbabies, yoga and other techniques. I think taking time out each day to talk to your baby is a wonderful idea. Sending lots of positive energy and "flip" vibes your way!

    Flip baby flip!

    I?ve had two pregnancies where baby only flipped late (36/37 weeks).

    The techniques that we used were visualization, and I went to the chiropractor. Do you have any chiropractors in your area (call around) who has been trained in the Webster technique? Definitely worth a shot. Many times the ligaments in your pelvis and uterus are a little twisted and can be rearranged with some tension release. Then baby can easily flip. If you are concerned about chiropractor treatment because you think of it as ?back and bones cracking?, there are several different techniques, and a lot of it is related to releasing the tension in the muscles and ligaments to allow the bones to go where they are supposed to go. Webster is very gentle, not sudden cracking.

    Good luck!


    As for a breech birth, don't the most recent re-write of the recommendations from the Ob/Gyn say that a trial of labour when baby is breech is actually recommended when there is someone trained around? I could be wrong but I know there are some ladies on this board who are up on their research (as your MW likely is). I'd post in a different thread and search for recent threads on breech presentation on this board.

    The biggest thing is not to panic! Things will turn out OK even if it's not how you had originaly envisionned it.

    I agree with Sarah 100%! Try not to panic and stay calm... chances are very good for you that with the right techniques that your baby will flip for you! I, too, was going to mention chiropractic as a means of trying to turn baby. That, the cat/cow yoga stretches, and lots of time on hands and knees. If you have a birth ball, sit in front of it on your knees and drape the top of your body over the ball - sit like that when you are watching TV, rather than reclining on the couch or on a chair. Reclining back is one of the worst things you can do for positioning. Spinningbabies.com is FULL of techniques to encourage baby to turn, so really spend time trying that stuff. And keep in mind that it IS possible for baby to turn in labor, too, so try to encourage your midwife to allow you to labor for a while before the ultimate decision is made for a c/s.

    You have a very unique opportunity with your cousin and the other midwife - and free is amazing! If you truly, truly feel like that is the best course of action for you, then really try to get your DH to be on board with you, though. I totally understand needing to respect your DH's wishes - that is the main reason that I am delivering at the hospital and not at a birth center. But doing what you can to make him understand just how important it is to you could make a difference. I truly hope that this is the case if you really want to go the home birth route.

    Anyway, hang in there, Kimia!!

    Thank you so much for your thoughts, kind words, advice, and encouragement ladies. I really appreciate it.

    I never thought about going to the chiropractor but I think I will try it. My dad is actually a chiropractor and so is my uncle. So between them, I should be able to get in to see one of them. I am not sure if either of them have experience or training in the Webster technique, but it doesn't hurt to ask them.

    As of lunchtime today I have already spent a total of 45 minutes on my sisters slant board that she has. DH went and picked it up yesterday afternoon, and I did it once last night, and twice today so far. I will do it every morning, noon, and night....in 15 minute increments. While I am laying there I am talking to the baby and massaging my belly. Hope its helping!

    After last night just doing it once, I woke up this morning with more pelvic pain/pressure. Not sure what that means, but I am wondering if it is a sign that baby has flipped already and is putting more pressure down there. I was having that pressure the last few weeks when baby was head down, and then the last couple days I haven't felt it (possibly cause baby was breach the last couple days.) So I think that feeling it again is a good sign, meaning baby is possibly getting where he/she needs to be.

    I am trying to be more positive in my mental and emotional attitude and visualize baby getting into the right position, so I hope that will help also.

    Funny story...this morning when I lay down on the slant board...DD1 (who is 5) walked out and saw me and immediately said "Are you having the baby?!!!!" I explained to her that I was trying to get the baby to flip. Then when I got off later she asked me if the baby flipped. I said I won't know until my next appt.

    Then just now when I was lying on it before lunch, DD2 who is almost 3, came in and overheard me saying a prayer for the baby to cooperate and flip...so she patiently waited and then said she wanted to say a prayer. So in her prayer she said..."Please bless the baby's head to go down and for the baby to have strings on it."

    After I asked her what it meant to have strings...and she said "For the head to go down."

    Haha! Priceless!!! Kids say the funniest things. I love it.

    As far as doing a home birth, I am not sure if I can get DH on board. I think he would be more willing to try a home birth with my cousin midwife there if the baby was in the right position. Not sure if he will be willing to try if the baby is still breech. I am just hoping and praying I can get baby to flip. Thanks for all the flipping vibes!

    How cute of your DDs! I think a lot of DHs/SOs are anxious about a possible breach birth to begin with and home births only add to their initial (uneducated!) anxiety simply because it's not what they're used to. Everyone thinks babies have to be delivered in a hospital when we know that isn't the case. I hope you can come to a mutual agreement on how to proceed with things regardless of the baby's position.

    I hope we can too. I want to make him happy with what happens in the end, but he pretty much said that if baby is breech then he wants me to get the c section. The thought of that makes me sick. Why can't we try to deliver a breech birth at home with two experienced midwives? It just makes me sad that he is so unwilling to let me make the final choice. I can understand that he is concerned about me and the baby and he has a right to have some choice in the matter, but to me a c section can be just as risky as a breech birth. And I actually think a breech birth can be done very safely if you have the right person to deliver your baby and guide you through it. So I am just praying baby will flip so we don't even have to address this issue.

    FLIP BABY FLIP!!!

    I agree with the other ladies, keep up the spinning babies and visualizations. So frustrating when they get cheeky, especially near the end!

    Have spent a total of an hour on the slant board so far. I really hope this works cause it is not fun.

    Yesterday afternoon DH texted me and said "This is supposed to be a surprise but so and so just told me they were doing a small baby shower for us at work and wanted to know if there is anything in specific we needed."

    How nice of them! I wasn't expecting anything like that. We already have all the big things and necessary things. The only thing we will be running short on is baby boy clothes if we have a boy. Unfortunately we won't know if that is needed until baby is born as we are keeping gender a surprise.

    But the one thing I really DO need is a nice diaper bag. I donated or threw away all my other diaper bags. Old, out of style, breaking, bright colors that don't go with anything. I have been looking online and found a great one that I really want. So I told DH to just tell them a gift card to walmart would help immensely. Then I can pick out a diaper bag and also get a few odds and ends that I still need...like some new bibs and hats. I am not sure what they will do. They may just get us some diapers and wipes, and if that is all...then that is great too. You can never have too many diapers and wipes. I just thought it was really nice of them.

    I also really need some new nursing bras but that is something I will just have to go get fitted for and purchase after my milk comes in and regulates.

    Anyway, today the kids and I are going to the library to pick out our free books after completing the summer reading program, so that will be fun.
