Fundal height at nrly 20 weeks?


Hi girls, Im wondering where my fundal height should be at at my stage in preggy?

This last few days Leo really has been giving me some welly!!! Its amazing as last week I was moaning that I dont feel him strongly and sometimes cant tell the diff between kicks/wind. He seems to have turned into Amir Khan over night!

Anyways, he kicks me right up by my belly button and I can actually see my belly pop out when he does it there.....is this right or could I be measuring a bit high for my dates??

The fundal height only really becomes a reliable indicator after 24 weeks, but from then it's 1cm for each week. So at 24 weeks it should measure about 24cm.

At 20 weeks the top of your uterus will likely be around your belly button, yes, from what I remember.

It's the measurement between your pubic bone and the top of your uterus. Your MW will use it to estimate the size of the baby.

It depends on how full your bladder is too....if bladder is fit to bust then you can measure up to 4/5 weeks ahead my midwife said
