35 weeks currently. Baby has been breech at 31 and 33 week scan.
Next scan monday at 35+2 so will see where abouts she is for certain.
I've been feeling kicks and movement really Low down, pubic area.
And my heartburn is horrendous,had a hard lump between my ribs quite high up.
Last night i kept getting kicked in my bladder and a few moments of 'oh I'm going to wee myself' sensation.

Does it sound like she's still breech with movements that low down!?

My baby was breech until around 34 weeks. When in breech I mostly felt kicks down my left side, quite far round. Once they had flipped I was feeling very clear and definite kicks under my ribs and round my diaphragm. I was 90% sure they had gone head down by the time it was my 36 week scan because of where I was feeling the kicks.

My baby wasn't breach (normal head down) and towards the end, all my kicks were felt high up

My baby was breech throughout.
Hard lump just under ribs, some sucker punches or possibly kicks out to my left side and some awful pokes which felt like they would pop out of my vagina!
Horrendous heartburn.
I took a pic once of my abdo lying down and you could actually see the outline of baby, very odd.
Transpires they were wedged firmly in my pelvis, so their bum was pretty much sat in my pelvic area.
ELCS, came out a very froggy looking baby!
Had a hip scan but all fine.

You will know when she turns! I was to about 34 or 35 weeks with twins, one each way up and noises being made about a section because there was no room and no chance for the upside down baby to turn at such a late stage. Then I had a bad night when it was like two sumo wrestlers in a sack, and I knew he had turned. The urge to get lined up for a headfirst birth is incredibly strong. She fought him every bit of the way but he prevailed.

Both mine were breech. I used to rest a brew on their little heads I. E. Where your stomach usually is! You could see the shape of their head clearly. Also had horrific heartburn, especially with DS.

I had sections with both, DS never turned at all, DD turned the night before the section, but I never felt a thing.

Sounds like breech. My baby has been head down for a few weeks now and all the kicks are high up on my left side.

My breech baby was very obvious - the head squarely between my ribs just under my boobs.

I felt kicks low down but head movements were much more obvious

Thank you. Definitely sounds like she's still breech.
I'm. Not sure they'll plan anything until 37 week scan anyway, so 2 more weeks to turn!

My breech baby kicked and punched in all directions, and used to arch his back too. His transverse brother kept rolling over, so half the time he was kicking me in the kidney and the other half he was kicking me in the bladder. Both ELCS but no complications. They claim they were just advanced, and had already figured out which way up they needed to be once out of the womb...

The head was up in my rib cage for breech. There was no mistaking it!

One thing you can try, which can't do any harm, is to give the baby a bit more room to turn using gravity. You find an internal corner with no furniture in the way, wear loose clothing, make sure your feet can't slip, fold your arms and lift them so your elbows are about ear height and lean in, shuffling gently backwards to let the bump hang a bit. I did this for my big singleton baby towards the end when space was tight, though she wasn't breech. It just gives them a bit more room and there's nothing pressing on them. Keep your spine straight. It is nice for your back, too.
