Belly Mapping Mama

I'm out on the web regularly to see what women are saying about Belly Mapping. Sometimes I find older posts. This one from Ann of Loxley on Mothering.com is fantastic. She wrote
about trying to figure out if her third baby was breech or not, after a previous breech. You may have to sign in... http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?p=15164131

Here's her drawing:

Belly Mapping is a process of discovery. Its not always easy to tell kicks from wiggles or head from butt. Follow the clues and after a few attempts and sometimes needing help from a "skilled palpater" most babies will reveal themselves.
