In brief: 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). Only in RARE situations are vaginal deliveries performed.

In brief: Butt down ok now
"breech" position at 27 weeks is not concerning---baby can be in any prosition at this time--likely will turn near birth time.
Regarding being low and uncomfortable....You may try maternity belt which may help a bit. Avoid tight clothing. Lay on you side to rest when you can. If these measures don't help, consult your doc for further eval. Good luck and congrats..Babies are awesome!
