Answer ( 1 )

  1. There are a lot of factors which come into play to decide the position of the baby when inside, such as:
    1. Is it your 1st pregnancy?
    2. What is your height?
    3. What is baby's expected weight?

    So if it is your 1st pregnancy, and your height >5' 2", expected baby wt < 3.5 kg , then you can wait till 40 wk before again consulting doctor.
    In case of 2nd pregnancy with previous normal delivery, engagement of head and labor onset go side by side.
