    Default Help ! Resting/sleeping and keeping early labour going-bubs positioned

    Can't lay on side for hip spd and leg agony. Contractions stop when I'm in recliner- scared bub will shift back posterior. How the heck do I sleep and keep early labour going? Contractions erratic and ranging between 8 and 20 mins apart. Help?!?

    I was in labour for 30 hours, the only time I slept was at the end when I had morphine and I'd still wake for contractions. Try and use a pillow or heat packs when you lie down maybe? Best of luck

    Try laying on your left side with a pillow between your knees. Good luck!
