Anyone else really uncomfortable due to a Breech baby? I’m 33 weeks now and he’s just not shifted yet
I just can’t breathe properly, sitting is painful as it feels like his head is under my ribs. Is there any way of making this better or making him turn? Is it likely he’ll turn yet?! My midwife mentioned CS last week briefly - something I’m petrified about!
I was the same until around 34 weeks so really feel for you both. A babies head under your ribs is agony and was also worried it would mean c section. Luckily by my 34 week scan he’d turned. And this was after my consultant saying he probably wouldn’t because i have half a womb and they thought he wouldn’t have the room. But he managed it and I didn’t even notice it happen.
I hope your babies decide to turn as well. good luck
I'm 37+3 and baby is breech. The top of my bump really hurts. Apparently this is because its where his head is alot of the time. I seen consultant tomorrow to discuss options for birth. Orginally I was offered an ECV but due to symptoms of preeclampsia being present in blood tests & urine (without high bloodpressure)I am now unable to have Ecv. At first c section scared me but now i just want baby to be born the safest and quickest way.
@jonesylass mine is wriggling around in there like mad! I agree, Atleast if you know you can prepare for it. Hope you little one turns for you. Mine had been head down for 5 weeks as well. Little monkey!
DD was breech but we didnt know until i was already in labour. This baby was breech at 34 weeks, but has turned. I tried all sorts. Bag of frozen peas on top of your bump in a warm bath. They're supposed to turn away from the cold. Breech tilt exercise from spinning babies website- I laid upside down on my ironing board for 20 mins a day for 2 weeks. Spending lots of time on your hands and knees with your bum in the air. Fingers crossed baby will turn for you. I found sitting leaning forward on my ball was comfy with my DD which eased the pain in my ribs
I didn’t know my daughter was breech until 35 weeks and then they gave me my section date when I was around 37 weeks. But they said if she turned at all they would cancel the section! I was always in a lot of pain at the top of my bump and ribs so came to the conclusion that that must be the reason but I’m 17 weeks with #2 and feeling similar pain so maybe it’s just the way my body is when pregnant. Hope it eases for you soon! X
