  • No, that just means she is head down, she could still flip back over (hopefully not). Still too early.....don't worry about it.

  • No, doesn't mean she will necessarily be born early. She can also flip around again.

  • No. That is no indication of labor soon. Babies usually turn head down and possibly flip back before becoming full term.

  • Im 27 weeks and she is face down also. The doctor said not to worry because she will more than likely move before then

  • The baby will change positions dozens of times before your actually due or go into labor. They dont usually worry if baby is head down until about week 36. So I wouldnt worry bout it until then.

  • No and just because baby is head down now, is no indication that he/she will stay head down. My lil guy flipped over at 35 weeks and was born breeched. He just didn't like that head down stuff.

  • It happens for most babies somewhere in the last half of pregnancy.

    At 20 weeks, about one in four pregnancies are breech presentation. By full term, the incidence is about 4%.
