27weeks carrying low baby is breech and extremely uncomfortable .Baby is below my belly button . Should I be worried?
No, likely will flip: Among breech babies, >50% switch to cephalic at 32wks, and it even happens at 38wks spontaneously. OBGYNs can perform a VERSION to flip baby at term, but DON'T TRY @ HOME. All breech babies should be delivered via C-Section b/c the risk of vaginal delivery is too great (head entrapment and fetal death due to cord compression).

If you are on formula, switch to hypoallergenic. If nursing, stop eating nuts & shellfish. ...Read more
Piercings, pregnancy: If the ring is short and curved as many are, as your abdomen increases in size the ring will tear out. Not a good thing. I know here, a long, nearly 2-3inch 'stick' that can replace your current ring is sold.
