Hey, i'm wondering if anyone knows of an online chart that says about how big you should be measuring. My doctor says i'm okay, but i'd like to see it on a chart. i'm 30wks pregnant and measuring 29cm, which i'm sure is fine if she says so, but i still want to see a chart. Thanks!

I don't know of a site but they say that you should messure along with how many weeks you are 29 to 30 weeks sounds pretty close!!!

OK, stupid question here - what exactly are you measuring? Not around the waist I hope! Please tell me exactly what you mean....

I'm back and have done some research - I found something that may answer your question alexi - here it is: Fundal heights tend to be used from about 16 to 37 weeks of the pregnancy, with their greatest benefit believed to be between 22 to 34 weeks. A 'text book' fundal height is supposed to equal the same amount of weeks as the pregnancy. For example, 20 weeks pregnant = 20 cms and so forth (up until about 36 to 37 weeks). However, fundal height measurements can fluctuate 2 to 4 cms higher or lower than the 'norm' for various reasons, with the baby still being very normal and healthy.

You all are within the normal range!
