Breech baby - mega ouch

I'm 33 weeks with DC2 and baby is breech (diagnosed by scan), and oh my god, the pain.

Head in the ribs is making breathing hard, and kicks in the cervix hurt like hell and make me want to pee ALL the times, even if it's a dribble! It even hurts when the baby moves around and wriggles. Always making groaning and grunting noises, so attractive, haha x

Any tips to ease the pain and discomfort?

Thanks x

I'm 28 weeks with twins, (bottom one breech, top on sideways). I got a big tummy belt from physio (on NHS) which really takes pressure off.

snap! mrsg I'm glad to see this. I was thinking was I just being soft but I never remember ds1 being this uncomfortable so early on. I fully sympathise with you, the kicks are the worst.

I have no helpful suggestions I am afraid but I completely sympathise. My 2nd twin had her head in my ribs for the last trimester of my pregnancy and it was so difficult to just breathe at times. I would try lying down to take the pressure off but then the pressure on my back would get too much. Oh the joys of pregnancy grin

I am quite sure you have heard of this but just in case you haven't: Have you looked at spinningbabies.com? Meant to be a brilliant resource for breech babies.
