Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
I'm 31 weeks pregnant and want to know if my doctor would have told me by now if my baby was in the right position for vaginal delivery?
I asked my midwife if my baby was head down at my 32 week appointment and she said it didn't matter yet. She checked just because I asked her to, but she said she wouldn't pay any attention to it until at least 36 weeks. My little girl is still head up at 33w3d
Eh, I think your OB wouldn't be too concerned just yet. From what I've heard, your baby still has plenty of time to turn.
You could always ask at your next appointment tho! :)
I would ask your ob on your next visit. If your baby is breech, what your ob will offer you is the external cephalic version at around 37 weeks. However, there are things you can do between now and then, like acupuncture, chiropractic, exercises, etc... Most of those things will be kind of too late to start if you wait until 37 weeks.
If your baby is meant to turn head down, he/she will no matter how far along you are. However, some babies become breech last minute, even during labor too. Good luck!!
Proud mother of two breech babies:)
The u/s tech mentioned that my baby was head down at the anatomy scan, and again last week when I had another u/s. My OB this week checked his position externally and told me that he was head down.
I don't know if they typically check that early, or if they just told me because he happened to be head down (and wouldn't have if he hadn't).
