  • Almost all do move by about 33 weeks. You do still have time! :-)
    But a lot of babies will turn with the help of pre-early contractions, too.
    Do you want help to turn baby vertex?

  • Usually babies are all over the place until just about the last month. They will be head down by week 36 to 38. At least it is what most OB doctors say and the way it was with my three pregnancies. I bet you will have a normal , head down birth just like your other two. 25 weeks is still early. Good luck!

  • He could still turn. My baby turned to breech around 32 weeks. If she turned that way, yours can turn back, right? Good luck! If he doesn't turn, a c-section was not that bad. With 2 other little ones, it was nice to have it scheduled.

  • chances are he will flip. i think they usually flip later than this. definitely don't stress about it now :) you can always research providers who are experienced with breech deliveries if you are really worried about it.

  • Its hard, but try not to worry yet your still pretty early. My daughter didnt turn till a few days before my delivery date.  Talk with your doctor/midwife about it.

  • Your baby is facing the correct way. If his feet are down, chances are he will turn. There is still plenty of time for the baby to turn. Here is a link on baby's position at birth:
