Yikes! We're labor watching already?! I'm not ready yet!!!

I'm due May 15th, but it's looking like my little lady will make an appearance early. She has been breech the entire pregnancy and it doesn't look like she has any plans on changing that. As a FTM whose plan was to try and have as natural a birth as possible, it's a bit disappointing. I guess we'll see! If she does have to be delivered through C-section, they'll be delivering her a week early.

Hey sweetie, I was having problems with my little man being breech, and I found some simple exercises on Youtube that have actually worked more than once to flip him head down again! I'll try to find the link... very effective, for me at least! I was having such issues with him being breech and kicking the ever living crap out of my bladder and cervix, and obviously it was very unnerving that he was breech so late. http://youtu.be/pteEYX8zwWc Give them a try! It can't hurt

Thank you so much for this link!!! I'll definitely give it a try, I'm desperate to avoid a C-section if at all possible.

Yes!!!! I've been waiting for this thread!! Due May 3rd but Im thinking (hoping) my little man will make his grand entrance April 30th and my labor will be about 10 hours. I had his older brother at 39wks 2 days and was in labor for 13 hours so thats what I'm basing that off of.

Hey we have the same due date and the same feeling about our little men coming at the end of April! I have a feeling my little man will come on the 23rd of April. I want my labor to be 4 hours but this is my first so...

You're welcome! I hope it helps! Let me know if it does I hope it works for you like it did for me! Also whenever he'd kick me really hard in the bladder or cervix I'd react by contorting and yelping at the same time pretty loudly because it would often take me off guard and REALLY hurt. I think it startled him, and then I would rub my belly and beg him to move down haha. Coupled with doing the exercises and all the surprised yelping and contorting he eventually was manipulated downward again. He flipped breech one more time after this but I just did the exercises (and surprised yelping) again and he flipped head down again. I really hope this works for you and you can avoid c-section! The one exercise I only did once was the one where she's basically elevating her legs and hips on a pillow at a higher level than her shoulders because that made all the stuff from my stomach want to come back up, so I did it for like two minutes lol. The ones that worked were the hoola-hoop like movements and the pelvic tilt movements.

Popping in here! I'm due May 7th, but DH is convinced DS2 will arrive earlier. In fact, I flipped over to April yesterday to mark some events down, and he pointed at April 24th and is predicting that's when LO will arrive.

My labor was fairly short with DS1 - 8 hours total from bloody show to birth, about half of that at the hospital only because they told me to come in at 3-5 minutes apart. Hoping for another short labor with this guy.

The one thing I've learned this late in the game - no more decongestant pills for me for a long time. I've been fighting seasonal allergies and taking a decongestant pill, which worked to fight the allergies... but also caused a bunch of mucus to show up in my urine. Since I plan on BFing and decongestants mess with that (as I learned while BFing DS1), I'm now reliant on saline solution and other nasal sprays to help alleviate the congestion.

Definitely looking forward to meeting DS2 though!
