So I’m feeling a lot better today after spending the day yesterday crying and whallowing. I’ve decided though I’m not giving up just yet!!! So last night I spent the evening upside down while watching TV trying to disengage Miss Alanna. Her head feels up in my chest today so its a start. I ordered some moxa sticks which is an herb that you burn near your pinky toes…yea..I’m a quack. 😛 Moxibustion is a form of chinese medicine that is just used to get the baby moving which will hopefully encourage them to turn. Here’s a small link about it or you can just google to learn more about it. http://parenting.ivillage.com/pregnancy/plabor/0,,42zd,00.html
I also ordered a high potency of pulsatilla which is a homeopathic remedy that will also do the same thing…just get the girls moving.
I’m doing lots of pelvic tilts and down dogs and lying upside down to try and encourage proper placement.
I also plan on trying to swim some if it warms up enough…I’ll still probably freeze in my neighbors pool but I’ve heard doing somersaults underwater will get them to flip.
Hmm…what else…if anyone has any other crazy ideas on how to turn a breech baby let me know!
I do think with twins a version is out and/or Webster technique with a chiropractor is out. At least from what I’ve been told.
If none of these things work I’m going to know I’ve done all I can to make this birth as gentle and natural as possible as I could for the girls. If it doesn’t happen the way I planned I trust that God has a reason for why they are in the positions they are. So please pray they turn unless there’s a reason for them to be where they are right now! They may know better than me!
