    i had a checkup yesterday with my midwife and she felt around my belly and told me bub is the right size and the heartbeat was as loud as ever. but then she felt down lower and told me her head is in a downwards position...this is normal right?
    a friend told me this was normal but i just wanna double check with u guys..

    It's pretty essential Honey! Don't know how far along you are but bubs has got to get to a head down position in order to come out. My LO was head down from about 28 weeks I think! Although up to a certain point they can still turn back round and be feet down or stretched out sideways!

    I think it's normal for them to be in any position at that stage :flower:

    My doctor told me that would happen and could start anywhere around 25 weeks. So that is totally normal and good. She is just getting ready for her release date!

    Hey. Yep, it's perfectly normal for baby to be headdown at your stage. You LO could still move though, so don't be surprised if you go back and baby isn't in head-down anymore. It happens. :thumbup:
    Your baby could very well stay facing down though. My LO went head down around 27 weeks, and has stayed that way ever since. It's a good thing! You don't want baby to be Breech or Trasnsverse-- then the doctors would try to turn LO, and possibley have to do a c-section. Baby being head down means good things!
    Good luck! :flow:

    It's normal :flow:

    LO could still move around though, but hopefully she stays put! My LO was always side ways until about 32 weeks, now he's head down and staying there! :thumbup:

    Totally normal, head down is GOOD means your LO is getting ready for birth (any other way like being breech and feet first is dangerous) x
