A 28-year-old male asked:

What will be the position of baby during 7th month of pregnancy?

You want a heads up?: Actually it is the reverse at 7 months as gravity helps to bring the head down in the pelvis in preparation for future labor. Of course a head up position is called a breech presentation which still occurs in a small percentage of pregnancies and often leads to Cesarean section at delivery.
