  • Baby rotates constantly during pregnancy. My daughter went head down at about 7 months, and she (thankfully!) stayed that way. From what I understand, if baby doesn't turn early it can be real uncomfortable for mom if they turn later when there isn't much room in there.

  • Every time i went in to the DR. the baby was facing down.
    I think most of the pictures like that show the baby facing down too.
