    Hi,

    Just had a scan yesterday and the report is that the fetus is in Vertex Presentation already.

    Is this normal ?

    Hi sirisha,

    As per my understanding...If your baby is head down it is claimed as vertex position. This is considered as the optimal position for birth.

    So don't worry.The doctor would alarm if at all there is reason behind it.take care :thumbsup

    Sirisha,

    The baby has lot of room in your tummy to move and change positions. At the time of scan the baby is in vertex position but it is not necessary that the baby stays that way. It is good if the baby stays that way but not necessary.

    And there is absolutely nothing to worry about the baby's position now since you are only 20 weeks.
