    I've just started measuring my bump. I measure 89cm around and my fundal height is 24cms. Looking forward to measuring how much I'm growing.

    Remember when midwife measures fundal height/height of uterus, it shows no indication of how big your bump is getting.

    I had no bump til 20wks with my first yet the uterus was in the right place for 20wks.

    I just measured around the biggest part of me today (round through belly button) and measuring around 86cm:flower:
