Some good things you can be doing right now to encourage baby to position well for birth-
- Sit on an excercise ball instead of slouching back on the couch or desk chair. It helps you to sit well to encourage baby to be more comfortable head down.
- Find a good chiropractor in your area certified in the Webster Technique, and schedule regular visits leading up to birth. The Webster Technique is supposed to be very effective at gently removing any misalignment that may be making bottom down more comfortable for baby.
I agree that this is too early to be worried about it, but it isn't to early to be aware of things you can do in a few weeks if baby looks like they're settling down. There are a LOT of gentle things, like the ball or the chiro, that you can do before it is time to panic and have an External Version.
With my last baby, I spent time on my hands and knees and I spent time on a slant board. I also found a doctor who was willing to deliver a breech baby, so I wouldn't have to have a c-section.
A great book that looks at the risks of breech birth versus c-section is Henci Goer's "The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth." Love it! Breech or not, I highly recommend that book.
