    My midwife started to measure me around the 30 week mark.

    If you want to be measured, I'm sure she wouldn't mind doing it for you! Just ask.

    My midwife measured last time I saw her, I was exactly 28 weeks. Could it be an area thing?? But she never felt for the baby's position, two people at work had that at 28, so think that there's no way she didn't and I'm lying when I say it, so it might also be a personal thing, maybe some midwives do it later than others

    I have been since 28 weeks, which is a good job as at my 34 week I was measuring 4 weeks ahead and have to go for further testing now!

    I first got measured at my 28 week appt and at every appt since but I'm measuring big and had 2 growth scans so that might have something to do with it. Having said that my mw tells me measuring fundal height is not reliable so not sure why they keep doing it......Nx

    From 25 weeks, and today again at 29 weeks. Also checked baby's position.

    I'm sure you could ask? Or measure yourself if you have a tape measure?

    Everytime after 25 weeks, did you not get given a paper tape measure in your pack at your book in appointment? In guess every area is different.
