Are breech babies any less comfortable to carry?

With DS, I was comfortable for my whole pregnancy, up to the day he was born (besides sleeping - I slept in the recliner for the last month or so). But with this one (breech) I am SO uncomfortable. And I don't even look huge but I feel HUUUUUUUUUGE. And like I can barely move around.

Is it just because it's not my first pregnancy and my muscles are kaput this time? Or do you think it could have anything to do with his breech position? I do feel lots of pressure on my upper right side fairly often, right where his head is.

I was a breech baby. My mom said that it was a horribly uncomfortable pregnancy. I was so low I didn't go above her waist, she was always peeing, it killed her to walk, and she had hard labor for 10.5 hours before I was born. (They told her she could deliver me naturally. So I was born 2 weeks early, breech, with no drugs, lol.)

Not sure. Both of my babies have not been breech, and both terribly uncomfy

This baby is not breech and I am terribly uncomfortable. He is so low in my pelvis and he is up in my lungs all at once. I won't ever have the "dropping" feeling because he has already dropped, so I am just stuck walking around with a bowling ball between my legs for the next 6+ weeks.

I am sure his position adds to it but I would just guess it has more to do with it being your second pregnancy.

It could have to do with his position, especially since his head is larger, maybe that is causing added pressure? I know until this LO turned I was a lot more uncomfortable-- two small feet take up lots less room than a head LOL

Hmm I'm not sure. My sister's first was breech and she said her second pregnancy was more uncomfortable than her first.

I'm pretty uncomfortable already and I don't remember being this uncomfortable this early with DD. and he is not breech as far as I know (wasn't a week and a half ago) and she wasn't either.

I'm sorry you are so uncomfortable!

Now that I'm on my computer instead o my phone I will say that I am experiancing some of the same things--lots of pressure in my pelvis, I can feel his body weight shifting between my bones, I have to pee all the time...and thanks to his position I do get kicks, punches and head butts all in the same space. BUT it's sooo much more comfortable than my first pregnancy--with my first I was miserable at this point. Beyond miserable. But I was also fatter, more out of shape, sedentary, eating like crap, and had pre-e....so those are contributing factors.

I have had 2 babies who were head down from the beginning and 2 babies who were breech (including this baby) and I don't really notice a difference. I was uncomfortable at this point with all my pregnancies though. I do feel her head in my ribs every once in a while and that really sucks. I also feel a lot of pelvic pressure and pee a lot.

I think his feet must be right near my cervix, because I feel kicks down there all the time and it feels REALLY weird!

With me it's made no real difference.

My last pregnancy baby flipped from vertex to breech & back again every 2 weeks from 28 weeks onwards. Didn't matter if he was head down or up I was still extremely uncomfortable I think personally it had more to do with the fact that I have a bi-cornate uterus & that he was a big baby.
