Hope your scan went well!

Mine measured 29cm at 27 weeks then down to 28.5cm at 31 weeks then today 32cm at 33 weeks. I think a lot can depend on how baby is lying when they measure the uterus as my midwife told me a 2-3cm variation is normal for this reason.

I hope your growth scan went well hun.

My midwives have said that fundal height is the worst measurement you can ever go by and she didn't understand why they still did it really. Each midwife has their own way of measuring, plus depending on which position the baby is in will mean the measurement is different also how much weight you've gained.

I don't understand them comparing to your last pregnancy.. body shape can be different, weight, height etc will all make the measurements different.

Sorry! I was sure I updated this! Scan was fine, he's only a tiny little bit under what my first was! I feel so huge today, feels like my belly is really starting to round and harden up more! xxx

I'm assuming as long as the measurements increase at my midwife appts I shouldn't need another scan.

that is fantastic news! Im so glad It went well It may be worth asking at your next appointment as sometimes when you've had one growth scan they like to do more (I had them at 28,32 & 36 weeks). Never a bad thing to get to see your little one again :hehe:
