Interesting read about belly shape and position of baby

After googling why I have a dip where my belly button is and not a perfectly rounded belly (at nearly 6 mths) came across this...

The Well-Rounded Mama: Belly Shape and Fetal Position

I have fibroids galore and placenta is all up front so this may be another reason but think the baby is posterior. Some days is more rounded than others, today its has a dip at my belly button..

I want a lush round D bump all the time!

Hi, Hun
I had a posterior bubs but you would not have been able to tell by the shape of my belly nor by the movements I felt towards the end of pregnancy. My placenta was well placed at the top of my uterus (fundus) so the placenta did not play into it at all. This is interesting reading though, especially as a "woman of size"
