This may or may not be a stupid question.. But I gotta ask.

I am 8 months pregnant and my back is hurting really bad, so I am doing a little yoga/stretching to help it. It works really well. I read somewhere the other day that some positions will make my baby turn. Like the "downward facing dog." My baby is head down, and has been. So I don't want to turn it. Does anyone know if it's pk to do the yoga without making my baby turn the wrong way?

I don't do a lot, because like with my first baby I may have this baby early, so I'm on light bed rest. Which means I need to lay down a lot, but can do some light activities. So my yoga is limited anyways, but I am worried I'll make my baby breech on accident. It's head is already rally low, that my cervix is starting to thin, can they come up after that process has started?

  • Yoga is to help the baby get into good position by aligning your body. It wont make the baby get into bad position. Does that make sense?

  • Yes, the little buggers can turn even if you are 40 weeks and in labor. I've heard of downward facing dog....I'm sorry I have no idea if that's a good idea for your right now or not. I'm glad the yoga is helping a little!!1
