How to measure pregnant belly?


I've tried to google this with no joy.

I know that each week = 1cm and that it should be measured from the pubic bone but where do you measure up to?

Where the uterus is but u need to know what you are feeling for do its hard to do it yourself

Normally the uterus is a bit pushy if u google it u should see where about the uterus should be at certain weeks but I wouldn't bother as u don't want to worry yourself if u get it wrong x

It's also not accurate until 28 weeks, even then, up to 2 weeks +/- can be normal. It's almost impossible to do it yourself though x

I've just had a go and given up. Not a clue where my uterus is. Will leave it to the midwife next week :-)

yup its from your pubic bone to the top of your uterus. Plus or minus 2 cm is normal. More acurate later on.
