dear vikas,first of all congratulation to the father to be.As the pregnancy advances the baby grows in size and the head of baby is towards pelvis out let.In last weeks the head slides further down and finally during delivery the baby is delivered with head first.In your case as your doctor has pointed it is likely that baby may come down and things become fine.If this does not happen then there are chances that baby may not be delivered by normal delivery and cesarean may need to be carried out for delivery.So do not worry and wait for the things to happen.bye and all the best.
