Be patient: A fetus assumes whatever position the uterus and chance allows, with more variability early and less as it approaches term. From now until term, increasing size forces less change in position as the uterine wall becomes stretched to accommodate baby. Although there is a chance she can still flip, it is less than earlier.There is little if anything you can do to influence the final position.
