does anyone know how to measure your stomach? where is the start and ending point for the tape measurement. I was just curious and wanted to measure my stomach this morning.

I think they measure from the bottom of pubic bone to fundus (top of uterus). It would be very hard to measure yourself since you must lay completely flat, however maybe your guy could do this for you.

yep... and they say your belly is supposed to grow a centimeter a week... like i'm at 29 weeks and my stomach measures 30cm... (I'm a cm off but who cares.. haha)

You should be able to feel a ridge in your belly that is the top of your uterus. If you're less than 20 weeks, try feeling below the belly b___ton, more than 20 weeks, feel above. If you can't find it yourself, you can ask your doctor or nurse to show you where they feel it.
