Im currently 31+4 and at my check up yesterday my mw confirmed my baby is head down "brim" and back to back. I know I have ages yet and baby can spin round in the time I need it to but just wondered if anyone has had any success in turning their LO from back to back to back to tummy? If you did, what did you do?
I have done a google and got some info from NCT about sitting positions etc as I am deskbound most of the day with work. I also have a gym ball I sit on at home etc and can get up and wander around freely at work.

Gym ball is best hun also sit on a chair facing the back and lean forwards. Good luck, I never managed to turn Lexie, she was back to side and feet first lol all sorts of wrong! Spent months upside down but some babies r just stubborn lol x

I knew you'd be one of the firsts to reply LH! lol.
I am sat sticking my bum out almost on my chair at work and almost pushing my bump into my lap as I read that can help too. If the baby does spin, it doesnt spin - Its just you read all sorts of stories of 4 day labours etc with b2b babies and I don't think I fancy that!

snap didnt know till i was pushing lennon out that he was back to back! hope baby turns for you xx

Is there a likelihood the baby may not spin round? And if it doesn't does it definitely mean a long, slow, painful labour etc.
My MW didnt say she thought it was a problem or anything, just said to sleep/lay on my left and use a gym ball to rotate my hips x
