    I live in NSW, on the sunny central coast!

    Default head down or feet down?

    Im 33+4 days

    I have noticed in the last week or so that bubs movements have become very low! When she moves it actually causes an ache around the front of my tummy and back..just a dull ache from having her put pressure on nerves/ligaments that clearly don't enjoy this!

    After looking and trying to understand baby mapping..I have heard conflicting reports.. 1 suggests that because the movements have become very low and I am feeling significant pressure on my pelvis that bub most likely is head down..another suggests that all the movement down low shows that bub is feet down as feet it where most of the movement comes from. Also, as mentioned on the baby mapping website..I feel her hiccups down below my belly button..

    The movement down low is more of pressure and rolling then kicking and jerking..My next widwife appointment is in 2 weeks so hopefully I will be told if bub is head down or not... (which i know can change at anytime)

    BUT I am curious as to what your thoughts are??

    Not sure but my midwife said my bub is head down (32 weeks) and I've been feeling hiccups low on the left side of my pelvis and a hard bump moving slowly just above my belly button (which I think is his bum!). Lots of movement (ripples, jabs) to the right where the midwife said his feet and arms would be.

    The hiccups would tell me that your bub's head is low?
