When do babies get in the 'right' position?

LO is technically head down now but his head is in the lower left (feet in my right ribs). It feels like his feet still migrate around but when should I expect him to get and keep a position? The lowest sensations I get are what I think are hiccups (they feel like light but regular tapping). What part of him would I feel the hiccups from? His head? Back?

I would assume chest? ...but I'm not sure. As for the question in your subject line, I think most HCPs like for the baby to be head down by 38 weeks, maybe even 36. If your baby is breech at 34 or 35 I would definitely spend a lot of time in a position to encourage him to turn around, or see a chiropractor who is skilled in the Webster technique for turning babies.
My DD was head down from about 6 months preg and stayed head down until birth. But I've heard of babies turning at the last minute/day/weeks, too.
It depends on the first was head down by 32 weeks and stayed that way while my third didn't stay head down until 37 weeks...he kept flipping. I started seeing a chiropractor for Webster technique with my third at 31 weeks.

And I feel hiccups where the head is...with my first it was always down low...with my third I felt them all day I felt them near my ribs then on my left side and then again later down I'm pretty sure he flipped that day.
