Welcome to health care magic
Your worry is understandable and you are anxious about the delivery too.

The head will sometime get into the pelvis more towards the date.

you can just do some moderate walking and breathing exercises which are helpful to some extent

Welcome to healthcare magic,
Normally in first prenancy babys head settles down in pelvis at 38weeks but in few patients it may not settle down in pelvis due to many causes such as cord around babys neck,big baby,inadequate pelvis.Don't worry wait till 8 may it may settle down by that time or after you start getting labour pains.
Best of luck
