    Default Fundal height growth spurt.......is this normal??

    Hi girls,



    I have a question to ask regarding fundal height measurements.

    On Tuesday my fundal height measurement was 37cm, then when i had to go back to the hospital yesterday for a check-up after being admitted on Tuesday with high BP they took another fundal height measurement but this time it was 40cm.

    Anyway they have decided to send me off for a formal ultrasound on Monday to check exactly how big bubby is. Has anyone else had this happen to them? And did the Dr's induce you or did you go to full term?

    Take care Leah

    Glad to hear it happens to other people aswell.

    Yes, the fundal height was taken by the same person. I suppose though if bub is laying differently on that particular day then the measurements could be right but with no reason for concern.

    They are sending me off because they are thinking it's going to be a big bubby but just want to confirm their thoughts. I will let you know how i go on Monday.

    Take care Leah
