just wondering if any of you know when the baby's head start turning into position (downwards i mean)? is it at 8 months , or just before birth at 9 months? im 7 months , is it down already? just curious?
as misslollipop said, they have a mind of their own! i have friends that said their babies didn't turn into position till 38 weeks! usually they will discover that position is more comfortable and spacious as they are getting bigger and then reside there till delivery. at my 3d/4d sonogram at 29/30 weeks, my baby was sideways. i asked my doctor about it and he scared me saying, "if she doesn't turn around, we will have to section you!" i did research and learned that rocking on all 4s would help. and, it did! by 32/33 weeks my girl has been in position, head down. for about 10-15 minutes 2-3xs daily, i would get on my hands and knees and rock back and forth. i also learned that this position was comfortable and helped me breathe better because it took some pressure from the baby off of my organs! your girl will turn around in time...i think only 3-4% of babies don't get in the headdown position by delivery. a good way to check on your baby's position if you have trouble telling her head from her butt, is when she gets hiccups. you can feel their little head bobbing with each hiccup. it always eases my anxiety when i worry that she moves out of position (she hasn't, but she is so active and flexible that i do worry about it sometimes!).
I went to my u/s last thursday and my baby girl is already head down. She was 29 weeks then. It kind of depends on the baby. At your next appointment your doc should me able to feel to see if the your baby is head down. Mine told me before my u/s. Good luck.
This is my first pragnancy and now am 17 weeks but, as per the doctor my baby is already head down position. is it something critical ? i should take any precaution ? it will turn to up ? anyone can advise me about this topic ?
