When does the baby start to move his/her head down?

I know i am too early right now, but its something that i could not stop thinking about last night in bed lol. I am so worried that my son will be lazy like i was and not turn! But I know that because I didnt turn in my mom mean my son wont turn in me. So does anyone know about when? And when does the doctor check?

  • depends on the doctor, im 32 weeks and my sons just been head down since i was like 20 weeks for the ultrasound and then at the following appointment for the ultrasound again because they couldnt see him cuz he was hiding in a weird angle at the 20 week one and he still is maybe its just an every appointment thing but hes been head down for awhile..but i know they can move so i think its closer to the end that they really check
