    I'd be seeing a chiro who specialises in the webster technique, and seeing an acupuncturist who can give you moxibustion sticks to take home.
    I'm also be crawling around on my hands all day and doing the spinning babies exercises.
    Good Luck!!!

    Where the docs worried about cord prolapse?

    My bub changes positions and dose huge movements every few hours for the past 1 1/2 Days which can apparently rupture the membranes and put me in labour and because shes transverse my OB is worried about cord prolapse.

    With cord prolapse you only have 7 min to get baby out apparently but if he was that worried wouldn't he have just admitted me to hosp? There's no way I could make it to hosp in 7 minutes more like an hour!
    My daughter, (first born) baby was a late turner. She turned at 38 weeks and stayed put.

    What you explain above sounds similar to what i went through with my son. He was an unstable lie, I went into Labor (which went away by itself) at 35 weeks and was admitted into hospital for a few reasons, every day when they came to find fetal heart beat, it was somewhere different. No one could ever tell how he was lying by palpitating. I had a few scans which basically showed him swimming round in a big pool .. My son was born via csect at 37 weeks because I went into labor again, and this time it didnt slow. He was transverse / unstable lie, and prolapsed cord was one of the concerns and one of the reasons for my cesarean. My Obs was also concerned that my membranes would rupture because I also had excess amniotic fluid and was essentially in labor with a sideways baby.

    To add, if your Obs has you booked for a cesarean. There must be a reason for it, maybe you could ask them for more information if you are confused. There are a lot of factors to take into consideration when making that call

    I just re read your post, my experience with DS is pretty much what your OB is saying could happen, my Obs didn't let it get to the point that my waters broke.

    Where is the placenta? If it is low do not attempt to move your baby!

    Thanks for your reply

    I'm happy to have the c/sect if that's what's best I prob should have been more clear on that, I have done research now and I wouldn't want to attempt a vbac with bub in unstable lie. She moves positions like 10 times a day If not more!

    The thing that I'm really worried about is that my OB is happy for mr to go into labour and just rush into hosp to have an emergency c-sect. I'm at least an hour away, add traffic and waiting for DH to get home and it's more like 2 hours

    Placenta is at the front.
    I don't think Turing baby will work as she changes positions over 10 times a day anyway.

    I think just going with the flow is the best way to tackle it. i hear ya on the movement I think some of the midwives thought I was joking until they checked me two or three times to find that his head moved again and again.. Hehe.. I bet you are feeling uncomfy . With a head out one side and a bum/feet out the other..

    Hmm... That was part of the reason I was kept in hospital, I'm a little over an hour away as well... The midwives did say my Obs was "cautious" but I was comfortable with that.. I think they rely on us to go to them instantly if we feel "tightenings" (contractions). I was asked to time them for an hour. How often I had them and how long they went for, but i was already at the hospital. If you are worried, it can't hurt to call and ask why you aren't staying there.. I was contracting from about 9am, just noticeably, not really painful contractions but they were increasing until 4.30 when they setting the wheels in motion for my cesarean.. Within an hour I had a baby, it was kinda good because I had no time to really get worked up about it and in hindsight, there was no need to but that can be hard when you are in that situation. but as I'm sure you know, it's different for everyone..

    And I was told if I did go into labor at home, don't wait for DH to get home, tell him to meet me there.

    My OB is worried bub moving so mch will rupture the membranes an my waters will burst so not sure if it would be ok to drive my self? Also I would have 22 month old DS with me.
    Makes me feel better knowing your waters didn't break before labour started glad your DD was ok. I wish my OB would admit me instead of saying an emergency c-sect is fine.
    I spoke to my midwife today and she said they will check bubs position tomorrow as I will be in the labour ward having a Ctg any way. Bub better not go head down just as before they check then turn transverse again haha!

In the end I was admitted to hospital that night and a c/s planned for the next day, but then she ended up head down again! I was allowed to go home, and had a VB at 41+3 when I finally had to be induced. She was almost 9lb so I don't know how she had room to move.

    I was happy to go with my OBs recommendations though, from my experience they're not always as scalpel happy as they're sometimes made out to be. My OB also told me they don't try to turn unstable lie, can't remember the reason, but he would've tried to turn her if she was breech.

    Congrats on your upcoming arrival too
    Good to hear you and bub had a good out come and how cheeky turning like that!!
    9lb that must have been uncomfortable when she turned! My DD is on the smaller side and it hurts when she turns.
    Interesting to hear your are not meant to try turn them. My OB didn't mention it as I'm booked for a c-sect any way. I figured bub is moving so much she would just move again any way.

    Thanks can't wait for all this to be over and have her in my arms

    Noooo - you call an ambulance, don't drive. Sorry, should have added that . Maybe ask at your ctg, what should your plan be if this happens?. I had my 2&1/2 year old DD with me too. The first time Labor started I got in trouble with my Obs for waiting for DH to get home and mum to come and sit with dd. oops ..

    Grr, yes! That would be a tad cheeky ..
