does it mean anything if baby is in position?

Babies often get into position a few weeks before birth. Depending on their size they may also flip around one or two more times, too- though your baby is likely too large for that at this point.

It sounds like your baby is in there doing her thing and preparing to head toward labor but it doesn’t necessarily mean that labor and birth are imminent.

ETA- Has your belly dropped yet? That’s usually a significant indicator that the baby has dropped into position, head into the cradle of your pelvis, and is preparing for labor and delivery.

Itsnotme :  Unfortunately, no. Doesn’t mean anything. My baby has been in position (LOA like yours) since my 20 week ultrasound, and I’m still pregnant at 41 weeks. Hopefully your LO stays that way for the next few weeks (the “safe zone” for positioning is around 34 weeks I think) so you won’t have to worry about a breech situation!

Doesn’t really mean anything unfortunately.

My baby was pretty much always in position…but she still got stuck on her way out!

Nope, being head down at 31 weeks doesn’t mean anything but baby should hopefully stay head down, which is what you want.

32 weeks and my baby is still breech. My OB says it’s at about the 35 week mark that they start taking the position ‘seriously’. But it’s still a good sign your baby is ‘cooperating’ 🙂

My baby was in position for weeks and I went 5 days over my due date. Good luck! 🙂

Doesn’t mean anything – baby can switch positions any time

 My baby was in position  for a couple months before the due date  and he was 10 days late.
