Baby Head Down

Hi ladies, i have a quick question. I had an U/S on friday at 30 weeks to determine growth of the baby. The tech did tell me that the baby is head down, my question is what are the odd's of him staying head down from this point on? I am going to ask my doctor this question in two weeks at my appointment. I know that they can and do move a lot until like 36 weeks or something so i'm just curious if at 30 weeks he's head down if there's a good chance he'll stay head down. I was suprised when the tech said he was head down because i thought he was breech with the way he was kicking....i guess he is head butting my bladder not kicking it like i thought!

Thanks ladies!!

Re: Baby Head Down

Dont count on it, the baby will probably turn around a few more times before delivery

Re: Baby Head Down

If all is well he'll probably go head down. But if you have another u/s, don't be surprised if he's flipped! At 30 weeks he only weighs about 3-3.5 pounds, so he's got alot of room to move, and will until his head gets engaged in your pelvis (first timers 32-36 weeks).
