When will baby go head down?

So I'm 25 weeks today and I had a 4D scan done, however baby isn't head down just yet, she said it's very normal as there's still so much room for him to move, but my question is when should I expect him to move from the breech position?

Here's a little photo of the scan today too, was actually a lovely experience I know some people don't really rate the 4D but I've had one with both boys now with the same place and really enjoyed it! X

Yes, as the tech said very common for babies not to be head down yet. Mine didn't turn head down until around 30-32 weeks. Some babies don't go head down until right before labor. Try not to worry too much xx

Lovely scan picture btw! How clear that turned out!

Both of mine were from around 26-28 weeks but I am aware this can be 'early'.

The head is usually heavier than the bum end around 33 weeks, so they usually are more permanently head down around then, give or take a week or two. Before that they tend to flip around a lot. Both of mine have been head down by 34 weeks.
