Is it normal to be 5 months and the baby is breech at this time? Will she turn before delivery?

  • Babies go into all kinds of positions, even sideways, while they still have space to turn. You'll be watched to make sure it all works. :)

  • I had a baby who was breach and turned on his own a few days before delivery! It was the most awesome thing.....I ended up with a c-section anyway but not because he was breach!

  • Yes..They Should Turn As You Get Closer To Delivery Around 32 Weeks-39 Weeks Some Turn Sooner Just Depends On The Baby And How Much Room They Have Some Never Turn But That Is Because They Run Out Of Room But You Will Have A Ultrasound Before Delivery If They Feel It Necessary... They Keep Up With All Of That TRUST ME!!!!.. Good Luck And Hopes This Help. CONGRATULATIONS ON THE LIL ONE!!!

  • Nonoluna is right. Babies flip all around in there. There is plenty of time for your LO to get into position. Don't stress!!!

  • Yes, both of mine didn't turn until later than that.

  • That is so true they turn so many ways throughout the time of pregnancy!! When I was pregnant with my daughter I think I was around 5 or 6 months and she was breeched but she eventually positioned for birth. It was the perfect delivery!! I am sure you will be fine CONGRATS!!
