painful baby movements

I'm 35 weeks. I have no idea what position baby is in. 2 different midwifes said breech at 2 different appointments then at scan day after 2nd appointment she said no baby is head down. Last appointment she said she thinks baby b2b.
Up until now movements have just been a little uncomfortable but now its all on left hand side and making me cry out in pain. I'm finding this pregnancy harder than my last 2. I look like crap too black rings round my eyes from lack of sleep

I'm feeling a less severe version of this - although midwife couldn't tell which way up baby was and my scan isn't until next week.
So consider this a helpful bump confused

This was me! My god, it was painful! No one seemed to understand and just watched in bemusement as I performed a rendition of silly walks, I wanted to cry but apparently it was amusing to watch. It did not stop, night and day! It made my toes curl! Anyway, this happened with both my pregnancies and they were both b2b. You have my full sympathy, it's so hard to explain it to people, but now I think it was worth it! Good luck and 💐 for you.

Ow, you have my sympathies. I had periods of this with both mine - as I recall it was most painful when they were moving from breech to OP - both turned quite late.
Have you looked at the spinning babies website? Some great exercises there for repositioning babies and loosening tight ligaments that might be contributing.

I've not found any exercises just been sitting on a ball from time to time but that makes my back hurt
