Anybody else starting to feel a little beat up at times by the baby? This little girl has gotten herself into a breech position (I think I felt her do a flip last night) and now she is kicking the heck out of my lower quadrant. Maybe she's trying to flip back over. My MW said not to worry about her position right now because she still has plenty of room to move around, but sometimes it doesn't feel like it!

I'm 24 weeks and baby girl is breech too. She kicks and moves a lot! She has been punching down toward my hooha sometimes, which is always a bit of a shock. I feel somewhat beat-up, but mostly it's that I feel crowded, like she is very big and very active.<br><br>
Then there is all the other preg stuff... swelling, heartburn, breathlessness, etc. that are getting me down. All my organs are pushed up and crowding my lungs. My face was swollen this morning, too --so I worry about preeclampsia, since I had it with DD1. I'm starting to become a constant complainer already, and I have 3 mo to go, dangit!

Yup! This baby is breech right now as well. Has been for a looooong time. I never EVER got kicks to the bladder with DD but this one loves dancing on it. Especially first thing in the morning when I have a full bladder. Ouch!!! Also when I lay down on my side it feels like it is kicking/punching so hard in my side that it pinches my side into the bed.

I think Romy's been doing somersaults....she's all over the place!! A few days ago she was kicking me in the cervix and causing me to physically jump in shock every time she did it. Now it feels as though she's head down and has her little fists clenching in my lower abdomen. I think her feet are facing towards the right side of my belly, and I've been able to feel little bony appendages through the skin.<br>
Sometimes painful, but I've got to admit to loving it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Yeah.... he likes to sit/push hard against one spot, and I have a bruise there now. It hurts even when he isn't there!<br><br>
Otherwise, he's really active, and jumps all over the place, which I enjoy feeling. he takes particular pleasure in kicking my bladder, which DD never did much of in utero.<br><br>
I can feel little hands and feet dragging across my abdomen a lot now - its so cool!

This baby is just like ds. Hanging out nice and low, pushing on that bladder, light kicks on the side. Nothing eventful. It sounds really exciting to have all that activity, but I think I might have another laid back baby.

For the most part, this baby is much calmer than DD1, but when she gets breech, it hurts. She must be vertex again because I'm feeling much more comfortable. Lots of nice gentle rolling, but no more rabbit kicks to the bladder and cervix.

DD was very active and so is this little girl. I have nicknamed her THUMPER.
