uterus height at check ups (38 weeks 6 days)


Hi girls,

I was just wondering what you were measuring at with your uterus height. My whole pregnancy I have been totally normal with 1cm to each weeks so at 24 weeks I was 24cm etc. Any way at 36 weeks I was 36cm but since then I have not grown, is this normal? What r u all measuring? When mw checked at 38 week appointment she said its a nice size not too big not too small but had a check yesterday as baby was quiet and I still measured 36, is baby just filling the space she has in there?

Sorry hun don't know what to say but didn't want to read and run. I have measured ahead since 12 weeks. At 12 weeks I was 13cm at 37 weeks 39cm and last week at 39 weeks I measured 42cm!!. So I'm worried my baby is going to be too big.

Unless you MW is concerned I wouldn't worry too much. But keep a track of movements. If you notice a decline or no movement at try the usual tricks (drinking ice cold water, rub your tummy and sit/lie down for a few minutes and if you are still worried or have any concerns at all don't wait ring you MW or the antenatal ward at your hosptial straight away.

If the baby has engaged then thats very normal as baby is now lower in your pelvis. My midwife says that fundal height measurements are not accurate at our stage of pregnancy so i wouldn't worry too much hun

I have my 38week appointment tomorrow so not sure but last week at 37+1 i was measuring 31cms. Im having a 5lb baby but im also carrying very low so not much of a bump.

Id say your just measuring behind because bubs has dropped

My cousin never got past a 36 week fundal measurement and had a lovely healthy 7lb baby on her EDD
