How do you know?

If your baby turns head down? Do you feel it? Is it a different feeling from them being head up? Just wondering cause I dont really know where my baby is unless he decides to kick.... Even then Im not sure if it was a kick or a punch haha

  • sometimes when you press on your stomach you can tell where the head is my just feeling a large round hard thing haha.. but then you can never tell if thats their head or butt :) I dont think there is a for sure way to tell w/o an ultrasound

  • You can try  Belly Mapping to see where baby is.

    I could palpate my belly and tell.

  • I have read that when you find the big round hard spot (it's either head or rear end) that when you push it, if it moves and has some give to it, you found head, and if you feel like the whole baby shift you found butt. My baby is head down, so when I push on him from the top, I can feel it in my lower stomach...
