    Default 36 weeks and aches down there...

    i am 36 weeks and my vagina is aching all the way round to my bum.
    Pretty sure bub's hasnt dropped. There is a big round lump under my ribs on right side, alot of 'limbs' and movement on my left side. i cant bend over, i think it's a head! Pretty sure it's breech! i just have that feeling! Why am i so achy down there?
    BH are a killer while im walking, most uncomfortable!

    Might be hemorrhoids.
    Not the nicest thing but common during pregnancy. Mention it to your midwife or doctor they will know.

    I think it sounds quite normal, I felt permanently swollen down there towards the end of my pregnancy. As the pp said it could be haemorrhoids, you can also get swollen veins in the vagina area too that can be quite painful. Still mention to the midwives they may have advice on how to relieve them. Try and keep your feet up and rest as much as you can

    WOAH! how awesome! im guessing a foot is kicking me down there or something. My first was breech but stayed in till 40+1 so i really dont know what to expect this pain might be.

    That is why I mentioned it, my first was well past 40w, my second breech bub at 36w. I had those pains you mentioned, a very active baby and otherwise felt ok (a bit hot and bothered the day before I remember because it was hot). Is this a csection bub or are you waiting? Best of luck, so fun!!!

    I am hoping to wait it out for a vbac but if it turns breech i;ll happliy go c-section. I would really like to labour tho, as i didnt with my first. We are just getting over a 40 degree day and 30 dregee night last night (cool change just hit now yippie) i am peing so much it's not worth me flushing the loo - i feel im wasting water lol

    So you had 2 breech bub's? were you told that you may have an 'unfavourable pelvis"? like i was told if this one turns also? - apparently my babies dont like my pelvis lol
    at 36 weeks was bub ok health wise?

    Sorry bad wording, my first wasn't breech she got stuck after a loooong labour. Yep all was fine at 36w, scary but fine. I hope bub comes soon for you
