I can't do this. :'( UPDATE. I DID IT. PIC INCLUDED.


It hurts so bad.
I've been told my baby is face up again.

When they strap the monitor on my and lay me on my back the contractions go into my back and don't register on the machine properly.

At home when I am standing or sitting every contraction feels like I need to pee, poop and push all at once.
And the midwives are right. How am I going to handle this without an epidural because they don't do them at this hospital.
The hospital that does is over an hour away!!

I've gone back home. And I just can't do this!! :'(

My husband keeps telling me I did a wonderful job with my daughter without an rip being stuck at 8cm for 6 hours and her being face up.

I know I have to do this. But I can't.

So they sent you home? Did they say you weren't far enough along? If you are desperate for an epi you have timebto drive to the other hospital.

I find taking a lovely warm bath in early-ish labor soothe the pain. A small glass of wine?
Try to sleep?

You can do it you have done it

This website has ways to turn a baby that is face up to being in the proper position. It also has ways of trying to turn breech babies head down. Check it out, maybe you'll find something that may work.

You CAN do this. I hope you get some relief and things start progressing for you.

Have you tried a warm bath? That COULD help with the back labor. At least to dull out some of the pain? Birthing ball? I am sure you have tried this all, but I just want to help you and give you hugs!

Aww no I remember at one point in my last labour and crying through every contraction, all the pain was in my back I'd I'd get a horrible pain going into my bowel, I can imagine that's sort of how your feeling if not that x 10.

Have you tried other pain relief gas and air pefedine?

You can do this Hun I know it feels like you can't but it won't be long before you have your beautiful baby xxx

My stupid house doesn't have a bath. But it does have a disability access shower from the previous owners and has all the rails and the seat in it.

When my birthday visitors feck off I might try the shower. May even bring my birthing ball in the shower

They wouldn't check how dialled I am because of the gbs. And the contractions weren't strong enough on the monitor to keep me at the hospital.

My son was back to back and I found water helped loads, also my husband rubbing my lower back very hard during a contraction.

You can do this! You are strong enough.

Good luck xx

Oh yea! We learned in birthing class about the pelvic push thing a partner can do to relieve some back pain during a contraction. It's done while sitting on a birth ball. The partner puts either palm on the largest part of the hip and pushes in toward the middle of the back. It's a squeezing almost. I'm sure it can be found online.

Also, screw the guests, you're in labor. All that matters right now is YOUR comfort. I'd even ask them to leave. I'm sure anyone could understand. My birthing counselor also said if you bring the birthing ball into the shower with you to make sure you put a towel underneath it and one on top to sit on. That way you have less chance of slipping. Just in case.

Having a rail in there is awesome. My grandma's had one and if that house wasn't so far away from the hospital, I may have gone there to labor in as it's been vacant since my grandma passed. It would have been a lot more comfortable.
