  • I could tell by feeling for her head and back. It wasn't hard for me. But then, I was an apprentice midwife and had felt for babies before :)

  • If the movement your feeling is up in your ribs the baby is head down and his/her feet are stretching out and up into your ribs. BTW? anything frozen out of the freezer applied to where baby is pressing on will make it move away from the cold after only a few minutes.

  • I wish I would have known this when I was pregnant. It would have saved me a lot of pain during labor(he was posterior and brow first).
