    Default Not what I wanted to hear :-(

    I had a midwife appointment today at 38+1 only to find out that bubs has turned posterior :-(
    My DS also turned posterior at around the same stage and my labour with him was agonizing!! I was also induced then so unable to have an active labour which obviously contributed to the pain.

    I just don't know if I can go thru this again :-(
    I am adamant I will not be talked into an induction this time round tho.
    Trying to stay positive but finding it hard :-(

    http://spinningbabies.com/ DD was posterior too so totally sympathise, wish I'd known about this site before she was born (wouldn't have helped much I guess because I didn't know she was posterior until I was in labour) I've heard great things about it though!

    Look into sterile water injections, they are absolute gold for back pain in labour!!

    awww i know the feeling, DS was posterior for the last 4 weeks which made my labour agonizing, he got stuck and I ended up with a forceps delivery. I only found out about the spinning babies website AFTER I had him unfortunatley and the midwives hadnt mentioned it to me. I've heard the website is awesome.

    The midwives did suggest sterile water injections. apparently they really hurt when first done but ive heard the relief is amazing. Unfortunatley I forgot about it during labour and was never offered them. I hope bubs turns, stay positive..you still have a few more weeks left hopefully Goodluck

    Mmm ds was posterior my whole pregnancy basically. I only felt him turn his back up a hand full out times but I didnt know that it caused extra painful labours! my tailbone took 4 months to heal but I know I can and would do it again. May I ask why they induced you first time round?
    Anyway, hope that site helps you turn bub

    Apparently 90% of posterior babies turn OA during labour. 2 of mine have been OP before labour and they both turned

    Thank you all so much for your suggestions and advice. Have checked out the spinning babies website which has some great ideas I have already started to put into practice.

    With my DS, I didn't know he was posterior til I was already in labour. Nothing could have ever prepared me for the back and hip pain I experienced!!! They ended up using the vontouse but he was out with the first push with it and I went home 16 hours after giving birth, so no lasting effects even tho the 12 hours in labour was hell!!!

    I was induced due to being 10 days over although I'm not convinced I was overdue as the hospital changed my due date half way thru my pregnancy. Actually ended up being induced on my original due date!! Being my first, I didn't realize I could refuse induction and just assumed the professions knew best.
    There is no way I will agree to induction this time round!!!
