    I also have a question. This baby is staying so high and I often feel something, I believe her head, in my left hip. It's like it's pressing against the inside of my hip bone when she moves and during contractions. Should I be concerned about this from a position standpoint? Will she still drop ok once labor really becomes active or should I try something to change the position?

    Bad positioning may actually explain start-and-stop labor, and the whole thing taking longer. I don't know if you know Jackie, but she just had a VBAC late last year, and actually went to a chiropractor over an hour away in the middle of early labor because nothing was progressing and she was afraid if she went to the hospital she'd get induced. The chiro worked her magic, she went home, and went into labor in earnest just a few hours later. If you're not already seeing one, I would HIGHLY recommend looking into a chiro who is familiar with pregnancy/certified in Webster technique if possible. You can also check out the spinning babies website, but even with that info, some professional help getting your pelvis aligned may really just do it.

    Also, I have read a lot recently about how synthetic oxytocin (pitocin) absolutely interferes with the mother and baby's naturally occurring production of it, and may very well be having detrimental effects. Your OB sounds like a nice person, but ultimately pretty old-school in his approach. I'm glad he's willing to listen to you, and that you are comfortable disagreeing with him. Doctors are definitely only human!

    P.S. (sorry) My other favorite drink trick if you have trouble with boring water, especially in the summer, is plain seltzer with just a little juice in it--like, I'll fill my glass most of the way with seltzer and just add maybe an inch or two of juice on top. Delicious, refreshing, hydrating, and way healthier than soda.

    P.P.S. (...) Hey, there's a SUPERMOON this weekend! You are so having that baby.

    Yes, remember following Jackie's lodge. I think I do need to start doing some searching around here for a chiro.

    I agree completely...my OB is a great guy he just was taught the system. But I do appreciate his willingness to talk to me. Maybe I'll have some luck opening his eyes a bit.

    LOL about the super moon...I hope you are right!!

    I wouldn't worry too much about the start and stop, every bit of labor is working! softening, dilating, positioning... etc... so definitely don't stress!
    If you feel her head in your hip bone, you can try some simple pelvic rocks and making sure that when you sit, you're not leaning back, but sitting forward with your hips higher than your knees to give her room to get engaged in the right way. I agree with Leigh's suggestion for a chiro! that helped me so much in 2 of my births and I'm about to call him to start working for this one!
    also swimming might help get you weightless enough for her to squirm into a better position - so if you have a pool or other body of water nearby I would definitely recommend that!

    Also gonna hijack and say thanks to Leigh for those water ideas!! It's so stinking hot here already and I'm having trouble keeping up with my body's need for hydration! Gonna try those!

    I'll be checked out for the weekend, so I hope to come back to baby news!!

    You're most welcome--I drank the entire teapot of cucumber mint water yesterday and made a new one this morning. I think I'm in love!

    How are you feeling today, Lynn?

    Yes, she's here! Turns out position wasn't an issue She came out fast once my water was ruptured. I've always labored with water ruptured since that's how both previous labors started. It was a different experience starting with contractions and water intact. It really was less intense prior to loosing that cushion but I also had some trouble with my position causing labor to slow. Really different experience...I'll get it all written up to share soon.
