Movement in pelvis=breach baby?

I was wondering if anyone who has had a breach baby felt more movement in their pelvis than their abdomen? I am about 32 weeks pregnant and I feel way more kicks in my pelvis than in my abdomen. I dont know what position the baby is in, I was just wondering if anyone else felt this movement and if their baby was breach or head first.

  • My dd was NOT breach, and she did a lot of direct hits to my cervix the WHOLE last month of that pregnancy.

  • I'm not sure, but even if your baby is breech, there is still plenty of time for he/she to turn.

  • You might try Belly Mapping to learn about your baby's position.

  • don't forget they can also punch so it's not necessarily the feet. my first son liked to punch and move his big ol head around alot. he was not breech

  • my second daughter was breach, and I actually did feel a lot more movement in my pelvis with her than my other pregnancies. I never thought about it much until after the fact, though because they didn't even know she was breach until I went into labor!

  • I'm 19 weeks and I'm nervous about it already! Most babies turn before delivery. Only 3-4% are breech at delivery.
