    Just curious...how many of you are looking at your butt in the mirror or feeling for your tailbone?

    I did feel for my tailbone when I learned about milestones Edit: in light of realising my previous misunderstanding, I should clarify I was feeling for the end of it. I didn't quite twig that it started higher than that.

    When you are fortunate enough to reach your ankle bone, you will call it ankle length. You won't wait until your hair moves over the bump at the bottom of your ankle.
    To me the top of the patella counted as 'in the knee area', I always viewed the crease as the actual milestone. And I did wait until it was traversing my ankle bone the second time, but first time round I did call it when it was 'close enough'.

    Consequently, when you reach that big bone (the sacrum), and you move just below that to the top of your tail bone, you should call it tailbone length.
    That does actually make sense though I always thought the coccyx was just the one bone on the end but no, it's a set of 4 vertebrae - my confusion stemmed from it being called tailbone rather than tailboneS. That's going to be difficult to change my view but it seems the most sensible thing to do.

    I have realized in the course of this thread that I completely misunderstood the milestone. I have been measuring by the end of my tailbone--I have been considering my hair "at tailbone" and I'm maybe 3-4" short of classic.
