It seems my little one is sitting happily on the right side of my belly with head up. With my DS i didn't have to worry since he was lying down the whole time and turned without a problem and stayed on my left side head down from the 6th month of pregnancy.

I am scared that my LO will get to big and not be able to turn later. Anyone have any tips or tricks to get them to turn?!?!?

This may be a bit late, but could help for "next time"....my baby was turned (head down but facing the other way-baby's back was resting on my back). I went to go see a certified Chiropractors that can turn babys, I also was told to sit up vs. relaxing back on the couch, and crawl around on my hands and knees while playing with my other children, and scrub your floors on your hands and knees (gets your belly to relax and helps baby to turn) and YES I did this when I was 38 & 39 wks pregnant...I wanted baby to turn!

finally time to relax and hope that she doesn't turn again! Saw this time that she is head down like she should be and everything looks good... the BIG BOLD BREECHED is now off my Mother Pass...

had a check up this week and out LO still hasn't turned. My doctor doesn't seem to be concerned or tell me that i should try anything, she just asked if i had felt the baby turn yet or not, and after the check up put in capital letters on my mother passport that the baby was breached... i am really getting worried and i don't like the added pressure of having the LO sitting so low... her head is still up on the right side and feet down on the left.

i really hope that she turns soon......

I asked my dr when they're supposed to turn and she said they can to anywhere from the beginning to 38 weeks. No worries girl. Baby will do what baby is supposed to when they feel like it

Thanks Kristen. I know i am worrying too soon... and the baby still has time to turn... but it feels like the time is going to fly by and the baby will be too big to turn in the end without difficulty. I really hope the little one will turn around soon... i know my bladder will be happy to have the break from all the kicking! haha

My daughter did not turn until 36 weeks!!! I did a lot of sitting and rocking on an exercise ball and tucked headphones into my stretchy pants near my pelvis so she would move there to listen. There are many positions that you can do to help move them. Right now I would not stress it!!!
