Saw consultant today and he has drawn this diagram in the 5th palpable bit.
I haven't a clue what it means.
Anybody know?

Baby head down, back towards the left side - just a guess, but doctors draw the body as they are looking at it so that's how I'd interpret it.

He's written "Ceph" i think which is short for cephalic, which means head first. I agree with DinoSnores about the diagram itself.

Circle is baby's head, curved line is baby's spine and rump. Surrounding jellyfish is the uterus. Shows baby is LOA/LOT position.

I never had any pictures like that drawn in my notes. Odd. I wish they would explain what they write though, it's annoying. Drop's explanation makes sense.

Thank you, that does sound right dropyoursward! As had the quickist scan ever to check babys position as the midwifes were not sure if head down or breech.
