Re: 16 weeks and uterus above belly button?
I always measure large. Last time the doctor did an extra ultrasound at around 14 weeks because my uterus looked closer to 20. He said he thought I was further along or having twins. It ended up that I was just measuring big, there was just one in there and he was right on schedule.
Today my OB had a little difficulty finding the heartbeat because it was a few inches higher up on my belly than it should be at 21 weeks. He looked at my chart and said well, it looks like you may just carry high.
Anyway I guess what I am trying to say is that it is possible for you to be further along, have more than one, or just to be measuring big. I wouldn't worry too much, and just enjoy it if it gives you an extra utrasound.
