  • youre most likely not going to have him early. every single baby does this. its just preparing to drop. a baby can drop a month before theyre born, so dont worry, you stil have lots and lots of time!

  • Its okay the baby is just getting into position. You will be fine, the only time that you should be worryied is if you stat bleeding, your contractions are closer than five minutes apart. Congrats to you and your family. Good luck with the baby!

  • at your next appt ask what 'station' your baby is at. -3 to +3, -3 being the highest +3 being when baby is crowning

  • well to ease your fears my girl went head down in my pelvic bone at 24 weeks and stayed there till i had her so the position means nothing

    BTW MY DD WAS ALMOST 2 WEEKS LATE WHEN THEY ENDUCED ME
    SHE WAS HEAD DOWN AT LEAST 18 WEEKS THE DR COULD FEEL HER HEAD THIS WHOLE TIME

  • My son was head down at 32 weeks, and then flipped back around... I know its hard not to worry, and even harder not to try to find "clues" as to when you will be holding your little one -- we ALL do it. Its killer knowing you could have your baby anywhere from 37-42 weeks and walking around like a ticking time bomb of baby. Good luck Momma! and congrats :)
