Does anyone on the board have any experience with baby being oblique? This babe's shoulder is engaged in my pelvis and head is resting on my left pelvis and it is SO painful. I'm doing the Spinning Babies exercises but so far this kiddo is not budging.

I know I have plenty of time for baby to move before labor and I'm not really worried about that. Mostly I'm just in a lot of pain right now and am trying to alleviate it. Thoughts??

Have you tried any rebozo techniques? You can use them with a sheet. It might help lift him out of your pelvis a bit to get resettled.

I'll definitely give it a try! I'm also going to get an exercise ball this weekend and start sitting on that instead of my desk chair.

After I posted this thread I felt baby squirming a bit in there (along with some nice head grinding on my pelvis) and had hoped it meant baby had repositioned a bit. When I stood up I realized baby HAD repositioned a little and is now also pressing on my sciatic nerve. Ooooowie!!

This is what I was going to recommend. I used it with both children and it REALLY gets the head down. My MW could barely check my cervix with dd1 because her fingers would barely go in and there would be Kailey's head She asked if we could have sex and then stuttered going "uh.. no, nevermind guess he can't get it in" Maybe TMI, but it DOES work
