Re: ugh. fetal positioning issues. baby is IN my right hip.

if you see a chiro, ask for the websters technique
Thanks! This is what I am concerned about.

I will def be seeing a chiro sometime this week. I am 37 wks exactly today, and I wanted to wait for the magic number 37 wks before I got the adjustment, just in case it send me into labor (highly doubtful, but I'd hate to get the adjustment and go into labor at 36w6d and have to deliver in a hospital!! (MW here cannot attend homebirths prior to 37 wks)). So before the week is out, I will see a chiro. Just have to arrange child care.

I will ask about the webster technique! Thanks!
