How high should uterus be at 18 weeks?


I may be worried for no reason, but I had a dream last night I was having twins, woke up thinking it was real and seeing as it has been a worry since we got our BFP it freaked me out. They did an early u/s at 6+1 and only 1 bubba, but said they could not verify for sure until 2nd tri u/s. But with how extreme my ms has been and how tired I have been I've been worried as we got pg using Clomid. The doctor warned me about the risk of multiples, especially seeing as they run in my family. They said my uterus was measuring a little big at my 14 week apt but now I can feel it up to a finger above my belly button which from what I can find it should be about 2 fingers below. I know there is nothing I can do until u/s on Thursday but the curiosity is driving me crazy!

It varies but by 18 weeks my uterus was at my belly button (I had a scan at 18+4). The general rule is halfway = uterus at belly button but like I said it varies depending on the person x

Thank you all! I could very well just be measuring big, and if so am going to go with baby is a boy! All the women in my family have had very large boys (all have been over 10 lbs) and girls within a more normal 6-8 pounds. Ultrasound later this week will tell!

I'm just over 17 weeks with twins and my uterus is almost 2 fingers above my belly button I feel huge lol.

This is my 3rd pregnancy though..and I have a 9 month old..so it didn't get much practice being small again!

Thank you! Mine isn't quite that high, and I'm not feeling that huge, but I look at pics of other women and then I do! But being your third you have every reason to be growing faster!
