34 weeks baby back to back - help

hi

I had my 34 week check today and BB is lying head down but with his back against mine. The midwife says he needs to move. I have to sit on a ball and lean forward (its not as comfy as the sofa I can tell you) and at night sleep on the side where he moves less.

Anyone else got any tips on how to make him turn?

I can still deliver naturally but back labour is much harder and more painful so I would like him to move.

thanks BG x

My daughter was back to back - this thread has a lot of very good advice in it

Any advice for turning an Occiput Posterior (back to back) baby?

Your baby has plenty of time to turn yet but it will help if you are getting into the optimum positions to enable this to happen. You could also try reflexology although this may need to done closer to your due date.

My daughter only turned in the very final stage of labour. It apparently does make for a more painful and difficult labour but I had nothing to compare it against so I couldn't say that this was the case. I still gave birth naturally and with no pain relief.

ttc since July 06. 8 cycles of clomid. BFP on cycle 5 (Dec 07) ended in m/c at 9.5 weeks. Second BFP on cycle 8 (May 08)

Hiya

I had my little girl three weeks ago and she was back to back from about 35 weeks up to when i delivered where she turned right at the end seconds before she emerged. I had a natural water birth with no pain relief-laboured mostly in my back-if he doesnt turn-and there is a high chance he will, i recommend the water it was a fantastic pain relief!!

Before i went into labour the midwife advised the gym ball, sitting wrong way on dining chair-legs apart!! And avoid relaxing in arm chair ( so not want you want to hear in last bit of pregnancy!!)

Hope your little man shifts about for you x x x

Meg was back to back, I was told to get on my hands and knees, go down on my elbows and stick my bum in the air. The problem was that they only told me to do this once I was in hospital on a ward and I looked like a right idiot doing it in front of everyone :snigger: you've got plenty of time to make baby move in the comfort of your front room!!!

Hi Bravegirl

I have been searching for some info on the same subject tonight. I saw my m/w today @ 37 weeks and she told me that I was 3/5 engaged and baby was back to back. Only two weeks ago the baby was the right way round now the little monkey has gone back to back. I went to Argos and bought one of those balls but I am not sure if it is gonna work as baby is engaged but I am gonna give it a go. She said as well that when i go into labour to keep as active as possible and stairs are good due to the hip movement. I wouldnt mind but i dont even feel like I do much of the sitting down stuff anyway! So chick we are in the same boat. My m/w did say although they did show a back to back on One Born she said it is actually very rare that they come out that way and she has hardly delivered any that way around as the contractions can help them turn too.



I hope that helps a little
