Breech and so bloody uncomfortable!

Ds is breech, I'm not quite 33 weeks though so he's still moving about in there, hopefully turning...I get pushing, churning sensations all the time, can't bend forward at all, and trying not to slouch or lie down too much as I want him to turn.. but I am so uncomfortable, head is in ribs I think and feet are too, every movement he makes feels like he's going to burst out!
If he stays like this I really can't face another 9's only going to get worse, isn't it?
any tips for feeling more comfortable?

Miss i can totally sympathize! I am 39 weeks and ds is still breech sad I have his head in my left ribs and his feet in my right. I can't remember the last time I had a decent sleep. I've resorted to sleeping on the sofa propped up.
There's a website called spinning babies that may help also getting on all fours with your bum in the end might help too!
Good luck! X

Hmm. All my sympathies. I'm at 38 weeks, on breech baby number two and in absolute agony. Only comfortable position is standing up and that kills my back! One more week until section....

Have you tried some antenatal yoga positions to encourage movement? I find it really helps & feels like it creates space.

I think we must be a special kind of mum putting up with this extra agony! I'm doing everything I can, seeing chiropractor in two weeks and spending ages on hands and knees, going for breech birth if I can, or in Labour planned cs, I know it's what I want but I am sure at 39 week's I will be begging for a cs!. DD was breech and elcs so I should have known what to expect really...

Sleepy, tried pigeon, cat and whatever the hump back one is, what else could I try? Got a bit of pgp too, only very mild, so don't want to encourage that.

hi, I am in the same boat ladies. Almost 38 weeks and been breech for what seems like ages! feet and head both jammed into my ribs. Feels like I'm going to burst! Section cannot come soon enough

I'm 31 weeks with breech ds. Head and feet under my ribs. My first Ds was breech too so had a c section at 39 weeks. Really wanted to avoid a section this time but if I need one to get him out safely then so be it. Doesn't stop me being really uncomfortable though!!

Today was horrendous, got my mat leave cover in at work so have been on the go all day sorting things out, tight uncomfortable tummy all day, baby now seems to be transverse! Painful bulge to one side, strong kicks to the other hip...
I feel like I will pop, I can't believe I'm only 33 weeks today.
jiggly I'm asking for trial of labour, they do support hands off breech birth at my hospital, or in Labour planned section. Not letting them deliver my baby early again like last time, just because they can't be bothered to skill their staff. I'm hoping he will turn before, or in Labour. There's still time!
Moxa, hypnotherapy, positioning all help. I'm bored of being on hands and knees but I'm desperate to turn him..

Another recommendation for spinning babies website,at about your stage possibly later in my last pregnancy baby was transverse which is similar to what you are saying I think and using their exercises I did manage to get baby in right position before birth.Some of the positions might seem very odd but in my experience they worked!

I'm 33+2 and my boy is breech too, I'm currently sitting on my birthing ball hoping he turns, I'm not sure how much longer I can take the pain in my ribs
