I am feeling better. He completely changed positions from his laying on his side to laying on his stomach. I have a strong belief that this is what cause all that discomfort yesterday afternoon. I am going to have the OB confirm his position Friday because I am only so good at belly mapping. I can't tell for sure if he is Right Occiput Anterior or Occiput Anterior. ROA is not an ideal position but OA is. I feel like he is more OA now but not sure. Laila was ROP if I remember right and she never dropped because of it. I am hoping he is OA so that I don't have the difficult start to labor this time around. I know its still early but With 10 to 12 weeks to go I am worrying about it. lol
So i went for my sweep which she didnt even attempt because baby isnt engaged at all! She said she cant do it if baby isnt engaged because if they accidentally break waters then theres a risk of cord prolapse. She felt my tummy and was like 'hmm u need to come out now baby' i said is he going to be big? She just repeated 'i think he needs to come out now' hes gonna be huge arrrhhh!
Army im interested in what u say because baby isnt dropping! Im not very good at belly mapping at all but i think his bum is usually up on my right hand side. What position would this make him! If his position is stopping him engaging id love to know so i try to shift him before my next appt on sunday when she will try again and see if i can have a sweep.
I dont know where he is army i just dont get it /cant do it! I thought loa was supposed to be good? Do u have to press hard? If i put any pressure on him he just wiggles off somewhere else! Hes so active still he wont settle into a position. When i sit on my ball he drops down im sure but every time i lie down onn the bed or mw table he pops straight back out.
I presume there is a risk of prolapse if ur waters go naturally when baby not engaged then? And what if it comes to induction will they still not break them if baby not engaged?!
LOA is good and the best position!! Any of the Vertex positions are ideal.
The head will be round the butt will be more of a bulge. Then you have to feel kicks and punches. Typically by this stage the jabs are punches and the feet just push or stretch.
Laila never fully engaged and my waters still broke on their own. They checked to ensure the cord was above her. I'm not sure what induction policies are on breaking waters like that though. There's still a good chance he will engage soon and you will go into labor on your own. Laila fully engaged when I went into active labor so its not unheard of at all.
