When does baby usually turn?

Just wondering... I am 25 weeks and am pretty sure the baby is still head up, can feel kicking on bladder!
Thanks

It's hard to say, but I think you still have a lot of time. Some babies don't turn until the very end. It always makes me weary when a doctor starts throwing around c-section to a woman who is only 36 weeks and baby is breech because there's still time!

I felt a lot of pressure and kicking on my bladder until about 27 weeks. Then his little feet were CONSTANTLY kicking me in the right side of my ribcage. As he got bigger, I thought for sure he was going to birth himself out of my right side, feet first. I could actually take one of his little feet and move it because when it got too uncomfortable. I think I was still bruised for weeks after he was born! : He kicked A LOT though and even gave me a kick on his way out for good measure.

Hi! Babies can turn during labor, so you just kinda have to wait and see. They can be such stinkers!

I know my ds is still moving back and forth, but he was head down at my 28 and 32 week visits.

Just coax babe into the head down position and remind him that it will be easier on your both if he is that way when he's born! inky

My daughter turned at 36 weeks. And she was born at 38 weeks!

The only stat that matters in this case is your own personal one, so don't worry too much about when it is supposed to happen.

I personally have a heart shaped uterus, so if my kids don't turn early they aren't going to be able to because the get stuck either up or down...

A friend of mine's baby was breech at about 38 weeks. Her midwife sent her home to think about scheduling a c-section. She (friend) did some yoga to try to help the baby turn. When she went back a day or two later to try a manual version, the baby had flipped. I think he flipped another time or two and when she finally went into labor, the midwife told her to come to the hospital right away so they could check to see if the baby was breech. He wasn't and she had a vaginal delivery.

Hi Autumnmom,

mine turned 2 weeks ago (week 28) - 3 days after I had a homeopathic remedy for something else. He was traverse the whole time, but we weren't worried - now I'm pretty sure it's his butt near the top, the round part is long like it's his back. It was pretty wild, too, it took about 10 minutes and there was all this scrunching around, I even got sweaty! I just lay back and gave him room (still don't know for sure he's a he )

the tapping on the bladder may be your baby's hands or head, instead of feet or knees, as well. I know my little guy spends a lot of time stretching and I feel it at the top and the bottom - ungh!

best wishes

Lori

Believe it or not, my TWINS are still turning at 36-37w. It is driving me absolutely MAD. One day I'm on for a vaginal birth, the next day, I'm having a c-section. GET HEAD DOWN AND STAY HEAD DOWN. How can two 6+lb babies still have room to do anything in there!!!!!!!!!
