Re: measuring the pregnant belly

They measure from the bottom of the uterus (pelvic area) to the top of your uterus. Your measurement in cm should be close to your weeks in pregnancy. For instance, at 30 weeks pregnant, your belly should measure 28 - 32 cm. My measurements were 2-3 weeks behind, but I had a 8lb 30z 20 inch baby.
