  • My aunt had her baby kick her so hard that the baby broke her rib. It sounds reasonable that an active baby could beat up your bladder...

  • Have you asked your doc. this question? It seems to me it could, but I can't tell you if this is what is causing the pain.

  • As the baby grows (breach or not) more and more pressure will be added to organs that lie on the ventral sde (front) of the body. Such as teh BLADDER. So it is normal to feel discomfort, especially as the bladder fills with urine (which is why pregnant women have to pee so much. The pressure prevents the bladder from expanding as much and thus it must be relieved more often). But no it will not likely  "bruise" your bladder.So unless you're peeing blood the baby is probably just comfortably sitting on your bladder.
