You would think I would remember after having so many kids when the baby goes head down. I had my midwife appt today and baby is still transverse. She didnt seem worried at all by it. But when should I start worrying? I really dont want to birth a breech baby at home. That would be scary.

Do you know if your baby is head down or not?

Don't worry about it yet. You have lots of time. I've had friends that had babies turn in the last few weeks.

I agree with Jillian. Baby still has plenty of time to turn head down.

Personally, I wouldn't worry until 36 weeks. You can check out Spinning Babies Home | spinningbabies.com though, they have tons of tips on stretches, etc to get baby to flip. But baby could always flip back at this point since there's usually still room.

And my baby was head down at the last ultrasound, but the tech told me there was still room and time for her to switch positions several more times. No need to worry about head down yet.

My baby was head down two weeks ago but honestly I think he is switching all over..he seems to be spinning inside sometimes...so I am not worried right now..

My youngest was still flipping at 38 weeks. One day he was breech when they checked then two days later he was head down.

35-36 is when you want them to be head down. This baby was breech until recently

Luke was breech until this week. He is head down now. But the OB said he wouldn't be worried unless it was 36 weeks or later and he was breech. He was breech every ultrasound up until the 2 I have had this week. Here is hoping he stays head down!

Yup, plenty of time! Wyatt wasn't head down until 35 weeks. This baby is head down and has been since 18 weeks. But he's super low, and I think that's why he isn't flipping more.

Good timing! I just had an ultrasound yesterday and found out my little one is breech. I've never had a breech baby before, lol! (Devin was transverse up until about the third tri when he went head down; Kate was head down the entire time, but posterior right until I was in labor.) So it made me nervous! But I know there's time and space yet for them to turn. I'm going to be doing spinning babies exercises (mostly the inversions) just as an extra push to convince her to turn.

I think its normal for them to flip around until 35-36w. My babies have always been head down after 28 weeks. Had an u/s yesterday and baby girl is head down, and quite low!

I think one of my babies have moved head down from the kicks. I'll know in 2 weeks time at my next scan.
