That baby won't turn.

I read on one of my updates this past week that this is when baby starts to think about turning into the head down position as they gradually run out of room. I know that each time we've been to our ultrasounds, little girl is in a different position. Head up, head down, head up, head down. Make up your mind! lol The funny thing is all I feel when she's "rolling" now is pressure and I don't see a specific body part or morphing. Must mean shes still got some room to play in there still. I'm afraid her time is running short though... haha

Not really. There is still plenty of time and even if they turn now there is time for them to turn back to breech. If I'm 35+ weeks and he still hasn't turned then I'll start worrying.

I have had some concern but baby's going to do what he's going to do. At my last few ultrasounds his head has been in my cervix. I usually feel kicks above my belly button. I hope that means he likes being head down.

I'm not worried, although at the 3D u/s he was head down. Mia turned from transverse to head down in triage after my water broke, so I am blissfully not concerned.

I'm not "too" worried about it at the moment, but it is definitely in the back of my mind. I do NOT want a c-section and my doctor will just automatically schedule one if she doesn't end up turning. I'll probably get nervous farther along if she hasn't turned. I know they can turn even up until labor but it's less likely as they run out of room.

I'm not worried at all. Sofia didn't turn until 37 weeks, the night before I was to go in for my version for her being breech.

I'll admit, I'm a bit concerned, just because she's pretty much been in the same position for 2 months now (at least every time I'm at the doc's office, she's in the same spot!)

I feel the same as Molly-- he has always been transverse in every ultrasound (and we've had a few!). I asked my doc about it because my 3 girls were always head down at 20 weeks and never strayed from that! She said they don't become concerned until 32 weeks.

I think there is still so much time for them go turn... I for one am happy she has maintained a breech position - right now her head would put way too much pressure on my cervix, so she can stay the way she is until her head's a little bigger!

Try not to worry about this too much. My son was flipped head down early, but DD did closer to the 34 week mark.

Thank you Katie (.:Shortcake:.) for my beautiful siggy!!

Im not really worried, but i do think about it from time to time. Evan and Max turned pretty late in the game. Maybe in the 30ish weeks, so I know there is still plenty of time.

I'm a little worried that Lukas will turn since he has so much water in there to swim in with my polyhydramnios "Olympic-sized pool". He's been head down for 3 months now but I can't help but worry anyway. I also worry about how his head is always on my cervix, so I guess there's no pleasing me! His head is >95th percentile so my therory/hope is that he's too top-heavy to want to turn now! lol

I'm worried, at both my ultrasounds she has been breech and was in the same position both times. Really don't want a c-section.

There is plenty of time for them to turn, I wouldnt worry. Most babies do turn. I am not concerned and I was told there is a 50/50 chance I will be able to deliver vaginally (baby A, the lower baby has to be head down for them to let you try) and although a csection is the last thin g I want I have come to peace that they will come the way the are meant to!

Mine seems to favor laying sideways so she isn't coming out breech or normal at this point! I won't worry til after around 32 weeks when thing start to get really tight in there.

For some reason I have been really concerned about that this time, too! I guess because I know a few people lately that have had hard times with their babies not turning. There is still so much time left though, most don't turn until a lot later anyway.

There is still plenty of time for baby to turn. Mine was breech earlier but is now head down and in position. The dr. was able to feel her head when she checked my cervix... There is a website, www.spinningbabies.com they have a bunch of techniques that you can use different exercise to help turn baby. I did the Inversion Exercise a few times and she did switch.. Not sure if she would have anyway or if it was from the exercise, but she has been head down ever since....

At my 24 week u/s, they said Oliver was "head down". Of course, he looked more transverse than anything. Even when they measured my cervix, he was parallel with it, not head towards it. Plus, I feel him kicking everywhere. But, mainly he'll kick low, which would mean he's head up or transverse.

He's got a little over 12 weeks to make up his mind lol!

I asked my specialist about this yesterday at my appt because Noah moved from breech to head down sunny side up. She said at this stage they flip multiple times a day because they still have a lot of room. She said it wasn't really a concern until closer to delivery. My best friend was breech all the way until a week (38 weeks) before her scheduled c-section. so baby can flip still it's just harder.
