I'm surprised your doctor worried you with this at 21 weeks. Baby has a LOTS of time to turn and most likely will. Doctors usually don't worry until it is the last 6 weeks of pregnancy and even then, they have methods to try to get baby to turn. My sister's first baby was breech and at 38 weeks, they tried (2 doctors together) to push and manipulate so that baby would turn. Baby did not and she had a c section (natural birth with her other two kids after the c section). But you are far enough away that this shouldn't be something you have to worry about now. good luck
My first bub was head down then flipped to breech at 38 weeks. I did exercises to turn him and it worked. This bub did the same at 36 weeks. There is definitely no worry at 21 weeks. They won't be head down that early. Generally baby's turn head down around 30 weeks. But Dr's don't expect to see bub in that position until 34 weeks.
That is way too early to be worried about bub being breach. My little guy is 26 weeks and had an ultrasound the other day with him head down right near my cervix only for him to flip to breach position a couple of days later. Plenty of time for bub to keep turning ☺☺☺. Don't stress ☺☺☺☺
What all others have said above! Baby doesn't usually turn to head down until around 30 weeks. Plus only 4% of babies are breech at labor so don't worry chances are in your favor that she'll flip! I'm 30 weeks and mine is breech, not overly concerned at this point :)
They normally don't check on position till closer to your due date or around 32-33 weeks. At 21 weeks my son was laying horizontal in my stomach and rolling around. I'm now 28 weeks and still have time for anything. They are still small so they have the space to still move. Don't worry about it too much you baby will still turn and dance till she has no more room to roll and will just kick you
