    I am 27 wks 1d and my baby has yet to flip from breech position, the doc says either they will try to flip him externally or c-section when the time comes. Have any of you had a late flipper? Just wanted to know since this is my first pregnancy and what I should be looking forward too if he doesn't flip. My doctors are taking him at 38 wks so I have 11 wks to hope that he will flip pending on room he has left before delivery.

    I wouldn't worry just yet if I were you. Mine didn't flip until 33 weeks. My friend's sister's baby went back to breech and she's in her 37th week! I've read people's post of the baby flipping in the last week.

    ok thanks makes me feel better. My docs act like its a major thing that he hasn't flipped yet at least I know now that he may flip sometime before he is born

    I agree that it is still early to be worrying that he won't flip to head down. My first didn't flip until 33 or 34 weeks, and like the PP said I have heard of babies flipping very late.

    Oh also forgot to mention to you, I know every Dr is different...but my midwife said they like to see the baby head down by 35 weeks. SO you have time to for that LO to do the flip

    My son didn't flip until I was 35 weeks which was only 3.5 weeks before I delivered him so you have plenty of time for yours to flip.

    This baby was head down until 37 weeks, then turned breech and then the following week turned back to head down again. Don't panic. You have tons of time left.
