When Does A Breech Baby Turn

krc - June 7

I am 31 weeks and my baby is still in breech position wich at the stage I'm told is quite common. But im wondering when do they turn and do they stay head down once they do. Does it feel different. Im starting to stress have horrible thoughts of having c-sections when I want to go natural. Can you feel a baby turn? Lately these past few days it feels like he is sideways. Anyone else gone thru this?

They can turn at any time... I was 37 weeks and still breech - went for my next appt at 38 and he turned. I didn't feel a thing and couldn't tell... But once they are head down there are there to stay :)

i have heard that they usually go head down by 36 weeks, although could wait for as long as labor to start to turn, but like jas said, usually once down that late, they usually stay down...
