My doctor mentioned that baby girl is breach at the moment, but not to be worried. It was more as a statement tof what he was seeing than

I'm 25 weeks and was told my baby could start moving out of breech at any time now.

They can move even during labor, so nothing is for sure! Dd turned breech around 32 weeks and I got scared bc I hadnt felt her move for a couple days. They said it was bc you don't have as many nerves on the back side of your uterus so she was kicking low and backwards and I didn't feel it. But they said not to worry and that she would turn back before birth and sure enough, she did! But she was sunny side up, so lots of back labor- ouch!!

I think 32 weeks is a pretty good guess. My son was over 9 lbs and he flipped head down at 39 weeks all on his own. :-) My girls were always head down. This one has been head down for the last week or so but I expect he will move around again for awhile yet to come. :-) I don't remember my doc being worried about my son being breech until after 36 weeks.
