    Do any of you find that you have to sit up really striaght now?

    if i slouch or bend down to pick something up, i feel Cobys head just inbetween my rib cage and it cuts off the breath a bit if i dont striaghten up quick.

    I know he is breech at the mo, but has anyone else got the same with there babys bums? lol

    i really cant remember this on my other two, so it couldnt have been like this, otherwise im sure i would have remembered

    I feel like if i dont sit up striaght i am crushing his head and he will get a headache or something lol, silly huh?!

    I do have this problem when I slouch. Although my little ones head is so far down my bloody pelvis half the time it isnt a problem if im just sitting normally. I do try and sit up straight now anyway as I get a very sore back otherwise and it upsets my SPD when I slouch. That and rib pain. Not sure which i prefer - waddling like I'm gonna drop or not being able to breathe right :?

    I'm experiencing this pain as I type, it's awful, it feels like there's something stuck between my ribs. I get so breathless it's unreal, and really uncomfortable :(

    He he I hope not!! Mine is actually painful but that might be because I'm really short (5'2") so it's pressing on me more...

    I was just thinking that as I sat down to type. It's a very uncomfortable feeling - a bit like being winded.

    Hey girls...
    I'm definitely feeling that, I was just thinking as I sat down to type that my posture is going to have to improve big time because unless I'm lying back I have to sit bolt upright, or baby struggles and kicks up a storm. And sitting bolt upright is hard on my back!
    PLUS getting shoes, socks or underwear on is a pain, as is shaving my legs. I think I'm going to be getting OH to do all my bending for me in the next while...and also wearing slip on shoes!

    Yes totally! In fact the only way I can get comfy is by raising my bottom up so that my hips are higher than my knees. I've been carrying a wedge foam cushion around for weeks now but this last week it's got even more extreme. I'm only 5ft so this very probably doesn't help! I had an appointment with my midwife today though and she said that my baby is 4/5 engaged now which means very slightly I think- anyone? The bump doesn't look any further down I have to say and I'm still out of breath walking up more than three steps!

    I also combine sitting with my back straight with my having my legs far apart by the way- so so ladylike! So glad I''m not at work anymore!

    i know how you feel, its so uncomfortable, though i have no idea which way shes is facing, But my back aches all the time and havent had the money to go to the chiropractor so if i dont sit up straight then i have to lay down and rest it for a bit.

    Hi Rosebay, it depends on your midwife. Did she write on your notes 4/5 engaged? As that means slightly yes. But if she said head is 4/5 engaged and wrote down 1/5 then usually it means 1/5 is felt above the pubic bone.
    Is this your first baby?

    Have I confused you now? PM me if you want me to explain more. xx
