It could be. Both mine turned at about 36 weeks. It was quite painful and I knew it had happened. It felt like someone was giving me a good kicking from the inside as if they were kicking their way out.
My dd was breech. She turned once then a little while later returned to the breech position. I gave birth to her that way! I had acupuncture to help her turn but but breech was her favoured position. Your baby sounds a bit more active than mine was. Maybe he is going to turn. Fingers crossed.
I think in the UK breech births are normally cesarean. I had dd in France and was so p'd off that dh was not allowed to be in theatre that I asked to have her naturally. Three pushes and she was out. Wasn't the most pleasant experience but then giving birth either way isn't!
When dd turned I didn't find it painful nor when she turned back to her preferred position. Maybe there was a reason why PadneHum's baby came early.
lovebeingable have you read ina may gaskin's guide to childbirth. Tis lentil weaving-tastik but she has delivered tons of breech babies vaginally. Apparently loads turn before or during labour. But you will be offered a cs if yours stays breech.
My DS1 was pretty much permanently breech which I actually quite liked - I could stroke his head all the time as it was at the front of my bump .
I had an ECV done at about 37 weeks I think and it worked well - was fairly straightforward and he stayed put until he was finally born at 40+16. Just thought I'd mention it as an option if yours does stay breech. Good luck!
Sorry. I did not mean to cause upset. My DD came at 35 weeks, 6lbs10 and very healthy. My uterus was just shot after 3 pregnancies and the baby turning was the final straw. I am sure you will be 100% fine
