The infant should do well regardless. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Im 38 weeks pregnant with baby number 3 and I am 2 CM dilated. When will it be likely for me to go into labor?
I go to hospital in 34 week than doctor says baby head is down now I am 39 week pregnant but not start labor pain can baby change position these days?
Breech: Rare to have the baby change from vertex to breech at 39 weeks. Not a lot of room for baby to move at this time except you have a lot of amniotic fluid around the baby which will expand or create a lot of room for baby to flip from head down to buttocks down. It is expected that labor pain will start anytime. If not after 41-42weeks most places in the usa will induce. Good luck. ...Read more
