Week When Baby Turns

At my 20 week u/s the baby head was still facing up. What week does baby start to turn with head facing downwards.

Usually in the beginning of the 9th month. At 20 weeks, the baby still has lots of flipping around to do. :o)

I'm at 14 weeks and yesterday during the ultrasound, the baby was turing up side down and waving... very active little one, but I still can't feel anything.

thanks... I was worried because everytime I see pictures in magazines at 22 weeks the baby is always facing down.

Monica that's called breech it varies. By the middle of the 8th month (32 to 34 weeks) the baby has settled in to the final position since that freedom to bounce around has been restricted due to lack of space. By 36 weeks the baby should be in what it's called a cephalic or vertex presentation (head down). If not, a procedure (ECV) is performed to turn the baby manually to avoid breech birth. If that doesn't work most likely a c-section is performed if the baby is still in breech presentation
