  • As far as I know the measurements are suppose to match how many weeks pregnant you are, Are you reffering to the Height of the Fundus or around?? Sounds like her baby is big for there are... was her other babies Large

  • The measurements are just an estimate to see if the belly is growing as expected. If the measurements are too small the baby could be not growing or their could be not enough fluid or other problems.

    Is your daughter seeing a perinatologist, an OB doctor that specializes in high risk pregnancies? If not she should give birth at a hospital that can take care of her heart problems and has a NICU in case the baby has problems. Her doctor should know her history and be taking good care of your daughter.

    If your daughter is not supposed to have babies and pregnancy could kill her talk to her about having her tubes tied. She shouldn't leave her kids without a mother.
