Re: Does more fluid make a difference
I think that drinking more fluid beforehand helps to keep the bladder full which can help push baby into a better position. As to fluid levels - I think that it is something you cannot influence much, unless you allow yourself to become very dehydrated.
Often, if baby is in an 'awkward' position they will tell the mummy to go walk around and drink a drink to try and encourage baby to move. Never actually happened to me as DD is usually very co-operative, lol, but I have known lots of women who had to go do that.
Hope that helps a bit.
Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree today.
