When does the baby turn head down? I love my baby boy&hearts Due September 25 (boy); New York 156 posts

I keep feeling that sharp, shooting vagina pain. I only felt it occassionally before, but now I feel it everyday, randomly. I am wondering if my baby is already head down and his head is pressing up against my cervix or something? I also feel his flutters up high above my belly button, although I feel them on my side and under my belly button sometimes too. Could my baby be head down already or could it be him just flipping a lot and changing positions? And why am I feeling those sharp pains so much now? I'm 23 weeks tomorrow. Thanks =)

It's normal to get sharp pains like that. My baby's head never turned down. Talk about back labor.

Mine never did :( He was breech.



But you're fine for now. Don't start worrying until 35-37 weeks. Babies can turn anytime til then.

I think at that point the baby is still tossing and flipping around.

I believe its around 30-35wks when he turns head down. I had an ultrasound done at 31wks and he was head down. The tech said he probably wouldnt flip back since he's starting to run out of room..

I felt those around that time for awhile as well...your baby is probably flipping all over the place right now cause it has a ton of room and sometimes using your cervix as a jumping off point...it slowed down for me until just this week and I am 34 weeks.

I keep getting those sharp stabbing shooting pains in my cervix or vagina, could it be him tossing around and hitting it?

My daughter was around 26 or 27 weeks. I went to L&D & they said that she was & she has been ever since.

Sometimes they never do. My son was head down the entire pregnancy but he was never engaged. When they enduced me he wasn't even at a station. It really depends.
