I am and its a nightmare. Am 34 weeks with my 2nd baby and the pain and general discomfort around my belly button is awful. I assume this is due to the bulk of the babies body being in this area, Am trying everything to get the baby to turn from a comfort point of view but am actually booked for a section for other medical reasons. I also think the position is footling and sometimes feel that the kicks so low down might break the waters which scares me.
Has anyone else felt/ experienced this?
can.t imagine another 5 weeks of it...

I am 34 weeks today and this is my 2nd pregnancy too. I had my antinatal app today and this is the 2nd week running that he is breech. I have another appointment on thursday and have to see the doctor as well as the midwife as i was told today if baby is still feet down then he will have to be turned. I have the exact same feelings as what you are experiencing, with him pushing out it is very painful and when he pushes down and kicks right down below it feels like his foot is going to pop out
I have a few things to try to get him to turn..e.g go on the floor on my hands and knees, frozen peas to sit at the top of my bump to try and make him turn to go head down instead
Have a try and see if that works, i am going to try
Fingers crossed, good luck x

its grim isnt it tiaxx. Glad i am not the only one. Good luck if you have the baby turned... i have also tried kneeling off the sofa with hands on floor, not easy but recommended on the spinning babies website. am a very petite 5ft and my midwife feels the baby might struggle to turn for this reason..

My bump was pronounced as breech at 34 weeks, and I was going to have a course of Moxibustion - which is a technique acupuncturists do (no needles though). Supposed to be quite successful if you want to look it up.
(Gladly not breech though)
