Ultrasound today at 17 weeks 6 days pregnant showed baby is in frank breech position. Should I be worried?

In brief: 17 weeks breech

Would not worry too early to determine birth position, if at 32-36 weeks they are breech that is a concern, http://www.

at 17 weeks they will flip around many times in an hour.

In brief: Plenty of time

There is a relatively large amount of space around baby (fluid filled) at 17 weeks that gradually lessens over time.
Baby has plenty of time to turn into a head down position which is actually more natural given the shape of the womb. I wouldn't lose sleep over this.
