So as I posted a week ago, Emma is breech. LOL She moved herself from transverse at 26 weeks to breech at 30. Slow mover I guess. LOL
Well now my sis and some friends say that since she's bigger now I will for sure feel it when she moves to head down. *i sure hope she does*

How will I know when she's in the right position? Right now I feel wide due to the fact that I almost can bet it's her head that is right under my skin on my right side near my rib.
Will it hurt when she turns? I was also told it will hurt.

Anyone else waitin for breech peanut to move?

Butts are really hard too. As far as I know, there are 2 ways to tell - you can feel around on your belly and try to identify body parts or wait for the OB to do it.

Granted my little flipper (Maddie) was in there with another baby so it's probably different, but I can second the notion that it DOES hurt when they flip, especially later in pregnancy. I had terrible stretching pains and cramping the night that she flipped on me at 37 weeks. As a FTM mom I wasn't sure what was causing all of the pain but it all made sense once we did an ultrasound and saw that she had flipped.

Even with this little guy - he's finally head down now but he was going back and forth between breech and transverse for the last several weeks, too. When he was breech I could really only feel pronounced movement/kicking on my cervix which is typical for breech presentation. Now that he's head down I feel the kicks right under my right ribs, pressure down above my cervix from his head, and his butt is literally a hard lump on the left side of my belly. My midwife felt my abdomen yesterday to check him and she confirmed the position, but I could've told you that same thing just based on what I feel and how my belly looks.

I don't know if that's a huge help, sorry. Just pay close attention to where you feel kicks versus pressure, and try feeling around your belly to identify things like the butt and the feet. Good luck - I hope she turns!

Alexis flipped (I assume) Monday night before my ultrasound. I had been working hard to flip her! I had just fallen asleep when some pain woke me, but I was so groggy I didn't even think of her flipping, just got comfy again and fell back asleep. I mean, sleeping in general hurts these days, so waking up in pain isn't out of the ordinary for me.

I have since felt knees and feet where her head used to be. I still feel her little butt, but it's squishier than before. I would assume because it is lower butt rather than upper butt.

I can tell Lainey (yay! I can call her a name now!!! LoL) is breech still because I feel dancing on my bladder and sometimes it feels like a foot is literally going to pop right out down there! LOL and I can see and feel a big hard lump right in my right rib. Sometimes I even have to sit crooked because its pressing so hard up into my rib! I don't know how it feels for a baby to flip because she sure hasn't and my other babies were always in the right position. But I'm with you... I'm still waiting!!

I can only really tell because of the kicks to the cervix. The doctor will be able to tell by feeling your uterus and when in doubt, send you for an ultrasound.

I'm pretty sure Haileigh is either breech or transverse... I really can't tell, but I"m positive that she's not head down.

DD flipped at 34 weeks and it was definitely uncomfortable. I didn't know what it was at the time, but had a u/s a couple days later to check position. With DS I never felt him flip. This baby is transverse and breech most of the time still.

I feel cervix kicks or something. But a week ago Emma was breech. I don't think she has turned, since I can still feel her head on my right side. LOL

I'm pretty sure this little guy prefers to lay transverse mostly but he's still a mover-- doesn't matter muth to me though since I'll be having a repeat c/s.

I would just like to know how you can tell if a breeched baby has turned? I don't want to have to go thru having a c-section. The doctor's have told me that he has plenty of time to turn but it scares me. I have 11wks left to go, I am praying this baby turns.
