Quoting diddyxx:" I am 35 weeks 3 days pregnant and my midwife was concerned at 33 weeks as my little boy was head down ... [snip!] ... be? Will it change anything and what happened to you if yours was breech? Sorry if you dont understand my bad English!:/"
Chances are you will feel a weird loop-de-loop feeling when he shifts (if you're awake to feel it. Another good way is to see where you feel kicks. I'm never very good about telling what body part is where (unless its the bum, I can always tell where the bum is...LOL) , but my husband is awesome at it. With my first baby if I was ever concerned I would have my husband feel around to see what he could feel. If you have someone do this, they REALLY have to poke at you, but generally my husband said its really easy to feel where the feet are because they are smaller and are generally right next to each other.
If baby doesn't turn there are 2 options:
1) If your placenta is in a good place to do it, they can turn the baby manually from the outside. The danger with this procedure is placental abruption (meaning they accidentally tear the placenta away from the uterine wall.) This can mean hemmorhaging for you and that the baby doesn't get as much oxygen as they should. However, a lot of women have it done with no problems and would choose it over option 2 if they have it as an option.
2) C-section- the downside, its major surgery and you have to recover from it. If this ends up being the case, just try to make sure you have a good support system to surround you and help you with the baby and with yourself. Some women are back on their feet pretty quickly, others- not so much. It depends on what your pain tolerance is and how fast you heal from things like colds, cuts, bruises, etc normally.
Don't worry too much. There is still time for baby to shift and if he doesn't the doctors know what to do to get him here safely.
Good luck! Sending prayers and good vibes your way!
