  • My doc always did that around 36 weeks. Before that point the baby still has too much wiggle room to get switched around lots more times.

  • I am 33wks, 3days and had a ultrasound today at 2 and it was determined he is head down. But somewhere around 36wks is right.

  • 36 weeks, maybe? Depends on your doctor, ask him.

  • at 34 weeks my midwife said that the baby was head down, but they didnt do an ultrasound until 36 weeks to confirm it.
