when does baby turn head down

I am 29 weeks and my baby is in breech position.  When does the baby turn head down?

the baby could wait as late as 37 weeks before it turns around....sometimes they don't turn around.

if you know this early, your doc will probably keep an eye on it and if the baby doesn't turn, sometimes they will try and manually turn  the baby.
good luck

I was worried about this too. At our 28 weeks u/s she was frank breech as of last Wednesday she was head down. I am now 32 weeks.

My DS was footling breech at 20 weeks and stayed that way. I ended up with a C-section.  BTW-6 yrs old and he's still difficult !
