At what week....

did your baby turn head-down and get into the birthing position? I'm 33 weeks and I've read that it should be happening almost anytime, but I can tell that he isn't yet.

  • well, I was 37 weeks and CONVINCED he was still heads up- I was wrong, I thought because I felt most of the movement at the bottem of my belly he must have his feet down there- I was totally wrong, try

  • Ya anytime is right but it can still take a few weeks, depending on when your baby is ready. i believe like by 37 or 28 weeks they'll watch that at each appt to make sure baby is getting ready for the big day!

  • I found out at my 36 week appt the my baby is head down but my first didnt go head down until 38 or 39 weeks, I just remember my dr. checked her at every appt and she just didnt want to turn but she did turn a week or two before I had her.
