Fundal measurements


So I had my first measurement on tuesday and I was measured to be 33cm at 28+2. I know that way of measurement isn't accurate. Just curious to see what other peoples measurements were x

I measured the same with my second, she was 7lb 1oz born lol.

Also with my first I always measured one week ahead until 33 weeks then it went

33w - 35cm
34w - 38cm
35w - 39cm
36w - 42cm
37w - 42cm
39w - 39cm

He was 8lb 3oz and I had lots of fluid.

I had been measuring right where I should be up until a month and a half ago where I started measuring 3+ weeks ahead, they sent me for a growth scan that showed baby was measuring right on track with where I should have been at the time. Just recently at my last couple appointments have I been measuring in correlation with the weeks I am again. My doctor thinks it could've just been how this baby had been positioning himself in there. I'd try not to worry too much, unless your doctor shows concern

I always measured way ahead . DD1 was very big (born at 32wk at 5lb4) so she was a big baby. DD2 I measured 49cm at 37wk , she was born a week later at 8lb5 and I had a LOT of water

I always measured about a week ahead with all my girls and they were 7lbs8, 7lbs9 and 6lbs.

I've yet to be measured with this baby so we shall see! I'm having growth scans with him anyways and he's measuring small on those.

I measured ahead with my 3rd until the end where i kind of plateu'd. I was measuring 39 at 40 weeks whereas id also been measuring 39 at around 37 weeks. So i wasnt really changing. Baby was born 9lb 13oz. Fundal height is a terrible indicator of size and is very dependant upon position of the baby, the mount of water etc.

I measured 7 weeks ahead with Emma pretty consistently from 20 weeks on. Assumed I had high fluid but it was borderline too low! She was 7lbs 7oz at 38+6 so not tiny but not huge either.
