Went to see the OB today, all is good and bub is growing well.
But he is spine to spine at the moment.
I'm told this happens reguarly these days due to our lifestyles and with moden lounges these day reclining and people being less active.

Ths is pretty much me to a tee. :smile:

OB said to turn him I should sit on a fit ball as that makes you have a good poisiton. My question is do I need to sit on the fit ball all the time, or just for so many hrs a day? If i do some time on the ball and some time in the lounge, does the lounge kill all benifit from the fit ball?

@ 38 weeks with DD, she was almost spine to spine - I used the spinning babies website ideas. Lots of sitting forward, on hands and knees and stuff for a day and she turned around. I was pretty uncomfortable for the day (trying to remeber to lean forward every time I sat etc), but I think I was also in labour without realising it. DD was born the next day and had turned from the posterior position.

I was told to sit leaning forward on the couch, in chairs etc, and if you're on the couch, lying down on your side rather than slouching back.

I quit sitting on the couch about 10 weeks ago and now only sit on the fitball. It's much more comfortable for my pelvis and easier to get up! I also do two preggie bellies classes a week on the ball.

DS has been head down and ready to go since 28 weeks so I don't know if this had anything to do with it. But I'd say bounce on it as much as you can!
