  • Don't worry about it. My baby wasn't in the correct position at this stage either. I wish they hadn't even told me because I was stressing for nothing. Fact is the baby can still do what it wants AND if it doesn't turn the doctors can still get it out safely.

  • the baby can still turn up to 36 weeks. my little girl has been head down since i had my 20 week ultrasound and im sure shes been down way before that!!! dont worry ur baby has plenty of time!!!

  • Babies can turn very late in pregnancy and even during labor, my first was transverse and turned on his own at 39 weeks, my second was going from breech to head down up until labor.

  • your baby can turn during labor. i wouldn't worry about it. if your dr brings it up and says you need a c/s, tell him/her that you want to try labor out first.
