Jude was sunny side up. I had serious back contractions (which should really be called butt contractions. I felt everything right in my butt) to get the ball rolling and immediately got an epi. Even with the epi, I could tell that the pressure was much more intense than with my first son. Usually babies will flip while they are in the canal, but Jude twirled into the world- flipping as I did the final push. Little brat.
Last night, I was talking to a friend about this and her second was sunny side up and she went natural. She said that if she could do it over, she'd get an epi because the pain was so awful and she didn't have that "forget all about it the second it is over" experience that she did with her firstborn.
Also, as a result of Jude being sunny side up and feeling every bit of pressure in my butt, on my first push I, yes, pooped on the table.
Not trying to scare you. I know tons of women do this! You can too!
AND chances are he will flip before the bit event!! Good luck!
