Hi everyone! I was just wondering if most doctors measure fundal height. Mine definitely does......every time I have an appt, they take a special tape measure and measure my uterus. I believe this gives them an indication that the baby is growing on schedule. I assumed all doctors did this, but I have a friend who is 26 weeks pregnant and she has never heard of this. Her doctor has never measured her. Do most doctors measure fundal height??

My midwife started measuring later in my pregnancy. I'm in my 39th week now, I want to say they started sometime in my 3rd trimester. I used to wonder about the same until they started to measure. Your friend's dr's office might be similar to mine where they don't measure until later. I would have her ask her dr just to double check when exactly they start to do that.
