So sorry, my first two were sunnyside up and I do tend to have more back pain during labor anyway so it was really crappy. Last labor she was born the "correct" way but still painful.

All of my first 3 were back to back when I went into labour, I just assume this one will likely be too. I use a pool and sometimes a compress on my back which helps somewhat. I feel for you mamma. I also get annoyed because medical professionals assume a slow birth where mine have come quickly.

I never thought to ask which way DS was. I'm assuming face down, if they never mentioned anything to me.

Sorry about back to back. x I'm hoping all goes well.

Oh is it really?! Ah ok all I've ever heard off everyone is how much worse it is but obviously I have no basis for comparison lol x

Just to clarify I have given birth 5 times, but drug-free 4 two sunny side up, two normal. xx

My 3 weíre back to back so expecting the same this time! I didnít find it too much of a bother but obviously canít compare pain wise as not had a Ďnormalí one haha. Mine didnít turn during labour either they were all born facing up.

Aww bless you. If they've all been like that then it will likely be the shape of your pelvis is slightly different and that is the way the babies need to position themselves in order to engage and move down. It's a variation of normal.
Back to back labour is harder to manage for sure. You've done it before and you can do it again love. Think of the prize! X
