Breech baby - mega ouch

So I accidentally posted this in childbirth, doh, blame baby brain haha!

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

Sorry I don't have any support but just wanted to say I know how you feel, MW said baby is breach and I'm pretty sure it hasn't turned yet....the pain on my side is intense at times (never felt like this with DC1), I also had pains down by my pubic bone which I suspected was baby....sounds like it was!
Hope someone comes along soon to give you some helpful advice

It's horrible. I'm getting kicked in the hip bone at night when laying on my side. Midwife said by this stage I would most likely feel baby turn and I haven't felt anything yet x

Ohhh I remember being kicked in the cervix gosh that pain makes you want to jump up and scream (I Actully did in my local tescos )

Snap. This is dc2 and I'm pretty sure it's breech. All movements felt below bikini line and low on one side.
Constantly feel like I need to catch my breath. Very painful.
However, dd was head down from abut 20 weeks and my god did she hurt my ribs! I thought she'd punctured a lung at one point! Constantly getting her feet stuck under my ribs and having to dig her out.
At this point I think they're so big it's never comfortable whatever way up they are.

Mmm, the stretching up with arms and down with feet is delightful isn't it? I can still remember the 'rubbing the head along the ribs' entertainment too.
Mine finally shifted at 38 weeks (nearly 20 years ago - I haven't forgotten!)

There are some yoga moves that are supposed to help baby move - worth a try? I'm 31 weeks and my baby moves constantly, sometimes head down, sometimes breech, sometimes across!
