My posteria baby turned the right way around a few weeks before due date... I went into labour at 40 weeks only to be told that she was in posteria position again. My waters broke but labour failed to progress because she wasn't engaged properly due to being posteria... I was then induced. Luckily she turned the right way around during labour.
Sometime between 31 and 35 weeks. I was getting nervous!
About the time that they ran out of space to move. So as above, around 35 weeks or so? One was posterior and turned easily and simply in early labour - so no back pain, she was anterior when the real party started. Second was anterior all the way but labour was really no easier.
About 28 weeks
We have success!! 30w3d I woke up from terrible tummy pains. Bubba moved head down!!
My 3rd turned head down at about 38 weeks .... I went to get induced as I was 10 days over and once they broke my waters and he ended up flipping and being breech
Mine both where late turners, 36w for DS (my first) and 36.5w for DD (she was born at 37w6d) I can remember being woken by both very clearly as it was very uncomfortable at that stage!!
Can I say if you have a late turner make sure you request an ultrasound to get their hips checked at 6 weeks & 6 months to check for DDH (hip dysplasia) don't rely on manual checking as it might be missed, all breech babies should be checked & if bubs was breech for a considerable amount of time they should be treated like a breech baby, it's often missed as they are born head down... My DD was diagnosed at 4.5months (luckily my GP was very switched on & asked the right questions)
