My MW did this at our appointment last night. It was so much fun! I was wondering if anyone else had done it. Here is a pic (forgive the stretch marks!).

Very cool! Does your baby really have that much room? I love the pic!

Very cool!

No need to ask for forgiveness for stretch marks. Your belly is beautiful!

She brought it up....but I bet a lot of midwives would like to do it, even if it's not something they do on a regular basis. You just need watercolor crayons.

hehe, no...it's not 100% anatomically correct for sure. She said the head is much lower too, but she drew everything in the general vicinity of where it actually is...guessing on placenta and cord location of course (we don't know placenta location since I've declined u/s).
