Am I being paranoid, or should baby be head down now!

This is my 3rd baby and I am 29 weeks on Saturday. It’s still in breech position, and both my previous were head down for good from 28 weeks. I’ve had nightmares about it being breech before I even knew it was still head up so I’m really worrying it’s not going to turn!

I'm sure they don't worry untill either 34/36 weeks, don't stress yourself out 🥰

My first didn’t turn til 36 weeks, plenty of time yet!

My baby was head down from 28-32 weeks then decided to move transverse and now at 34 weeks I think is breach. 🙈🤦‍♀️
I hope the baby will decide to turn again. 🤞

It's still early.

For my second, I was told she was breech and did all the exercises. Went on for a few weeks and was told that yes, I would definitely feel it as I was getting well past 30 weeks, it would feel very strong. Come the next appointment and she's now head down hmm I hadn't felt a thing. I'm pretty sure the midwife just got it wrong to be honest. It made for an anxious few weeks.

The doctor will probably offer to turn the baby for you.

My third was head up at 31 weeks; turned around 33/34 weeks. The consultant said no need to worry till 35/36 weeks, so you have lots of time!

Hi my baby was breech from 28 weeks but then flipped head down at 37 weeks. There is still time

Being breech at 29 weeks is completely irrelevant unless you go into prem labour. Don't worry about it for a second. It's only a concern if baby hasn't turned by 36 weeks unless as I said labour comes early

@16more thank you
@BlusteryShowers what exercises did you do to help the baby turn?

I looked at the spinning babies website, and was advised to hang off the sofa with my knees on the seat and my elbows on the floor. It was pretty uncomfortable to be honest, and as I say I'm sceptical as to whether she ever was breech, as I never felt the turn and she was born normally.
