On my last visit they messured what seemed to be my uterus to make sure the size coensides with my number of weeks whicha t the time did. Does anyone know if they measure by Centimeters? Also where do they start the measureing from? I really wasn't looking when she was measureing
They measure in centimeters. If your measurements are off, they may do an ultrasound to make sure everything's okay, but keep in mind this is only a rough estimate. It can be off due to the way the baby is laying, how you are carrying and a number of other things. That happened to me and the baby started measuring small, but everything was fine with the baby.
As everyone else said, they measure in centimeters. I am almost 32 weeks, and have at my last two appts been measuring a week ahead. My dr said it can mean nothing, can mean a bigger baby, or can mean you truely are a week ahead. But the area around your pelvis to the top of your uterus is what they go by I guess. It's just to give them an idea.
