How do i measure my belly


Im just wondering how i measure my belly like what the doctor does at a checkup.. I've never paid much attention to it and would like to know how to do it at home acurately.
I heard its supposed to equal how many weeks you are or something.

Thanks

Its actually pretty hard to do yourself unless you really know what you are feeling for. However, if you would still like to try, here's what you do.

Lie down on a flat surface, find the very top of your uterus (fundus), measure from the top of your pubic bone to the fundus. Measurement should be done with a cloth measuring tape, one that does not stretch. measurement in centimeters should correspond with how far along you are in weeks +/- 3 cm. Hope this helps!
