Thanks for the replies ladies. I had no idea baby could move just like that. Thought it would be a position he would have been in for a while. Perhaps that would explain my random contractions the day before. Midwife said it was probably him moving down. To answer some of your comments... yes baby was posterior (back to back - correct me if I'm wrong on that) I was labouring on and off for the day previous. Went into hospital day of and presented at 8cms dialated. Spent the morning in shower, walking and leaning over bed. Spent little time laying down as I wasn't comfortable like that. Got fully dialated and was told I could push so I did. I felt like my pushing was not making progress (gut instinct knew something wasn't right). After pushing for over an hour an OB showed up (don't know why? Is it protocol at Mater to have a OB show up to just check on things? ) she did the internal and found he was back to back and not descending as his head was in a funny position. Continued to let me push (ONLY LAYING ON MY BACK ON THE BED THOUGH) also tried vacuum but he just wouldn't budge. Almost attempted episiotomy but decided to just take us into theatre instead.
