Nearing 27 weeks and I really only feel Buko kicking/punching/squirming below my bellybutton-- like 3 inches below, at least (not even that far above my pubic area), and the height of my fundus was last measured above my bellybutton (23 cm @ 25 weeks).
I kinda figure this means s/he is breech* right now... No big deal as it's still pretty early, but just trying to figure it all out, since I'm a first-timer and am not getting the hang of palpating position or anything. I will see my MWs in a couple more weeks, so I'm sure they can help me out then.
But does feeling baby low mean baby is breech, or not necessarily? I would think, well, maybe they're punches or head-butts, but I'm not feeling ANYTHING anywhere close to my ribs, and only very occasionally somewhere closer to my bellybutton or slightly above it. So if what I'm feeling are hands or a head, then why don't I ever (or rarely) feel feet? Then again, maybe I'm thinking my uterus is bigger than it actually is?
Any thoughts? Insight from non-first-timers, or first-timers who have had position confirmed?
*Or maybe transverse, since I am almost-kinda measuring small and feel her/him on the left about 90% of the time... But then, that's literally always been the case, so I have sorta suspected my placenta's on the right.
