I've been doing pelvic rocks and spending time on all fours but baby is still posterior. I know he can be born that way and that he may turn in labor but I would really like to get him in a better position before I start labor.

Right now, my back is KILLING me. As he moves lower down, my back is getting more sore. Any suggestions would be appreciated!!

always lean slightly forward anytime you are sitting. My first was posterior at 39 weeks and turned before labor started. Don't stress too much just yet.

One thing that my midwife suggested is getting in a pool with a kick board and just doing laps of kicking for as long as you can. Good luck getting bub to turn.

I was going to sugguest the pool as well. And sitting forward is a great practice surring pregnancy- you should always do that. (have your belly button pointing to the floor or straight to do it right).

pelvic lists are also really helpful for getting baby to turn. It's exactly what it sounds like- just life your belly.

if your baby is too far down to turn easily you can lay on an ironing board. Put the ironing board propped up on something sturdy, with the other side on the ground- like a steep mountain. And lay with your head to the ground and your feet up, to help baby come out of your pelvis so there is more room for baby to turn. This is something best left to early labor though, and be super careful!!!
