Hello Sugiek, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
In general, the baby's head will enter the pelvis 2-4 weeks before labor occurs (approximately 36-38 weeks of gestation) in the first pregnancy. However, the condition of each woman's pregnancy can be different. There are women whose baby's head descends before 36 weeks of gestation, but there are also those whose baby's head descends just before delivery (usually in the second pregnancy and beyond). At this gestational age you should not worry too much, and just wait patiently.
There is nothing special that you need to do, but in general pregnant women will be advised to stay active to maintain their fitness. You can do light exercise such as walking or going up and down stairs to help your baby get down quickly. Make sure you are careful not to fall or slip. If you have certain conditions in your pregnancy (for example, you often experience vaginal bleeding), first confirm with your obstetrician about the limits of physical activity you can do.
That's all the information from me, I hope it's enough to answer
