39 weeks baby is posterior, how to turn her to anterior position?


Hello Ladies. I am 39 weeks pregnant with baby #4 and am ready to meet her. My midwife says Iím 1 cm, 70% effaced, baby is in -2 position and would progress more or even go into labor if my baby girl would just turn into an anterior position. She said there is no pressure on my cervix to move things along. My baby girl is not fully posterior, her back is along my right side and her head is resting on my right hip. Iíve tried being on all fours for 10 minutes then laying on my left side and also trying to manually pull her up and over with no luck.

How do I get baby girlís head to an anterior position and put pressure on my cervix to hopefully start labor. Iím SO ready!

Thanks.

I'm not sure what you can do, but I'll be watching this thread closely as mine's in the same position and has been there for weeks. Good luck!

Have you tried the spinning babies website?? I am going to go to a acupuncture session tomorrow for this as my bug is the same no pressure on my cervix as he is not engaged and laying down my right side. I have a small hind water leak so really want to get things going as I have had enough of it stopping and starting as they can reseal. I think if he was in a better position labor would have started by now and my full waters probably would have broke.

I've heard good things about spinning babies too. But my midwife said lots of time on all 4's. Like more than 10 mins... lol spend your whole day there XD

The baby's back is heavy so gravity pulls it down.

Still have had no luck turning baby. Went to the spinning baby website, lots of posture changes and positions, tried a few, no luck. Today I had my membranes swept and she stretched my cervix from 1 cm to 3 cm. I’m really hoping that it does something. But if not I asked to be induced early next week. Someone is supposed to call me to schedule the induction.

Reiko - I thought 10 minutes does nothing. All day makes much more sense and, of course, is unreasonable - I have three kids. Lol.

Cross your finger for me, I really hope this weekend is it! Having contractions as I write this.

I think the spinning babies thing is something regular you are suppose to do rather than a once of. Also I would try acupuncture. I have just had 2 sessions for labor induction due to my waters leaking and it helped baby turn from being up my right side to back down the front of my belly, he also gave me his personal number in case baby flips to posterior while I’m in labor he will come and give me acupuncture to turn him so it is worth a try. Good luck

The Spinning Babies site has some good ideas.
Also, my midwife told me to go on all fours and gently rock back and to for quite a while.
Good luck!

Hi ladies! No labor yet, but I did lose my mucus plug this morning and then walked the mall for a couple hours. Having regular BH contractions with a few painful ones every hour or so. Labor is, obviously, on it’s way just wish it would be sooner (today) rather than later (any day past today). ��
