  • with dd it was at like 29 weeks or something and she stayed there til i delivered. i could tell. my stomach was bigger on one side. i could rub my belly and feel where her little booty was and her back. and her head was on my bladder.

  • It really depends on the pregnancy. Some babies don't turn head down until just before labor and delivery. Every pregnancy is different and unique, so it's hard to say when the baby will turn.

  • I read between 32-38 weeks. My dd never went head down and was breech when I went into labor... She ended up emergency C and was pulled out upside down and backwards with her feet behind her head. It really varies baby to baby!!!
