Breech baby?

How can you tell for sure if your baby is still in the breech position or if they've turned head down??

I keep trying to feel for her head around my pubic bone but I really can't tell if what I'm feeling is her head or not. I don't go to the doctor for another 2 weeks and I'm just curious to know if she's flipped or not yet.

 Where do you feel the most movement?  A lot of times, you can feel the bum, if they're laying against your stomache, and it'll feel like a head.  I think the kicks are easier to read, though, at least for me.

You might try Belly Mapping~

If you feel baby's head is up, there are some exercises you can try to encourage head down, too...    But since you have a long time and baby can flip a lot, don't worry too much!

I can usually tell where the head is by feeling the feet kicks and fist punches.
