how many weeks are you lulu41?
the baby normally turns around at around 32 to 34 weeks, until then he/she floats around freely...

yep, mine turned at 34 weeks, and he/she had been breech all along!

However I have also heard that the doctors can turn manually a breech baby around shortly before delivery.

Not a problem Lulu41. Babies move around a lot at 30 weeks, playing tumble driers
