Hi,

My husband and I went to see our midwife today and she said the baby is in a breech position. We were a little bummed when we heard this because she doesn't deliver breech babies.

When she listened to the heartbeat, it was down low, toward the pelvis, below the belly button. When the baby hiccups it's always low.
However, we can feel a hard lump up high, just below my left breast.

What are some indicators of a breech baby?

Thanks,
Maris

I'm not really sure unless you have an ultrasound. When I was in my 3rd trimester with Aden the midwife could feel her head down low near my pelvis!

How far along are you? A lot of babies do turn around before they're born, sometimes only the same day you go into labor.

You basically can feel two "bumps" One is the baby's butt and the other the head. THe easiest way to tell is to try and move the bump. The head will kinda move side to side, the butt won't move at all.
