Appointment today was fine. Not much progress...a fingertip. Baby is still high. Blah blah blah.

But my Dr. says, "he may not come down." Yes, I have big baby syndrome and GD. She's hung up on that, I'm not. But with DD I got to 10, pushed for 2.5 hours and she never came down...and was OP. While I've comforted myself with the fact that I'm doing this naturally and will be moving and upright (first labor was induced, epidural, horizontal the whole time), I still got discouraged. Because pushing the baby down and out was where I got hung up with my first.

So I just need some encouragement that yes, my baby will come down. How silly to think that he wouldn't? Right?

Maybe try sitting on a birthing ball/workout ball while you watch TV or whatever. I had a VBAC with my second and he was really high up and they thought he wouldn't come down. I sat on a birthing ball during labor for a few hours and that made him come down. My labor was only 3 hours. Good luck!

I sit on a birthing ball like half the day at work! I'm doing all I know to do. Walking, squatting, birth ball, tailor sitting.... I'm better today. I always feel so fragile after I leave the Dr.'s office.
