and then the hard lump goes down again.. other than being rather amusing (husband calls it his pint rest) its very uncomfortable! 33 weeks pregnant.

Sure its not the babys bum?

wombleprincess Mon 01-Sep-08 13:08:32

well i suppose it might be, at my last appt she said i was breech but did say it could her bum ...

my baby does this, with its bottom. Yes it can be uncomfortable!

When i read this I didn't know what to think shock grin

Anyway, good luck in turning your babe. I went swimming and mine turned. very weird feeling, but I was delighted.
Your babe might be trying to turn with the gymnastics - have a swim - up and down a few lengths, on your back and front crawl - or just doggy paddle!!!! it might do the trick.

my baby sticks his bum right out too, at least I hope its his bum, to the left of my belly button, its a very strange feeling, how weird.

Mine sticks its bum right out and right under my ribs. Very uncomfortable, and it makes the most enormous bulge!
A lady on my ante-natal thread said she turned her breech baby by turning somersaults in a swimming pool.

Read the title and I thought you meant during labour shock

Mine is also perfecting the bum sticking out position. I nearly freaked out this morning... I woke to a scene from Alien grin.

thank you for this thread - i'm in the throes of horrible morning sickness and this made me laugh for the first time today

I'd vote for it being it's bum, too. DS was a very lumpy bump and posterior you could see his bumsticking out and his feet on the other side sometimes.
Not very comfy for you, I shouldn't wonder!smile

That's what I did AnnVan - I was turning from swimming on my back to swimming on my front and curled my legs under me while turning in the water - a mini sommersault and hey presto my turned baby - be warned though... it's such a weird feeling when they're that big, you might need to stay close to the edge of the pool to hold on afterwards as you catch your breath.

I also thought this post was about labour!!

I was just picturing you balancing your tea cup in your fanjo region. Then I wondered if you were posting from the delivery suite if the head was out

lol i was picturin exactly the same

Pinkjenny Thu 04-Sep-08 10:08:27

DD used to do this. I swear when I woke up in the morning I could see her head moving around, like a little meercat.

Everyone told me it was her bum, but I always knew it was her head. And she was breech.

Nappyzoneneedssleep Thu 04-Sep-08 10:10:40

and me eyeballs! - wow in labour i thought and you had energy to have a cup of tea and pause to rest a cup on its head as emerging - no that wouldnt be normal grin
