How Close to Delivery Did Your Baby Turn Head Down?

I am 31 days from my due date, and I can still feel my son's head pushing into my side. Others who got pregnant at the same time I did already have a head-down baby. Opinions? Experiences?

  • Some people I know had a baby that didn't turn until they were about to go into labor (like the same day they went into labor the baby turned). For me, DD turned when I was between 30 and 32 weeks (can't remember exactly now). It was NOT fun lol. I walked funny after that and it hurt to sit, stand, move at all sometimes, etc. It was like a bowling ball sitting between my hips for about 6 weeks. A friend of mine is due later this month and her baby turned a couple of weeks ago. It really varies baby to baby. Congrats!
