I had a growth scan last week and the hospital mw showed my hubby how to measure mine because she thinks my own mw is incompetent!!!
She started with her fingers in the middle betwwen my boobs and pressed down firmly working her way towards my belly button until she felt a firm ridge which was the top of the uterus. I have since tried and it does take a bit of finding and you have to press quite firmly but once you find it, there is no mistaking the ridge.
You measure from this point right down to your pubic bone which is really low down (further than I imagined).
The mw showed hubby how to do it because apparently it is almost impossible to do it yourself lying down and get an accurate measurement.
Having shown hubby how to do it she gave him a tape measure and made him promise to only measure every two weeks!!
