Prenatal Visit: Fundal Height Measurement

Q: My OB recently started measuring my belly every time I see her. Why does she do this?

A: Starting between 12 weeks and 14 weeks pregnant, many doctors and midwives perform a fundal height measurement at each prenatal visit to monitor
 the fetus’s growth. This involves measuring the distance from the top of the pelvic bone (symphysis pubis) to the top of the uterus (fundus).

Week 20: Itchy Rash

As spring heads toward summer, my baby boy is growing and developing right on schedule. He’s approximately the length of a carrot now (about 10 inches long), weighs ¾ of a pound and for the next several weeks, I’ll be gaining around a pound a week. Not to sound like a broken record, but yep, I still feel great! I am amazed at how easily I’ve had it so far.
