Possibly a really stupid question lol I am 29 weeks 3 days pregnant and when the doctor measured me yesterday she said "Thirty, good."

What does that mean?

  • It means that your uterus is measuring 30 cm (or equivelant to 30 weeks) from the bottom (right about your public hair line) to the top of your fundus (about 10 cm or so above your belly bottom)

    Just a heads up... be prepared to be "spoken to" by mommy's on here about why you didnt ask the doc what he meant when you were confused. It is NOT a stupid question, when it comes to pregnancy (expect those ever annoying "could I be pregnant?") nothing is a stupid questions. But some mom's think you should ask your doc what he meant

  • It means that the size of you uterus is lined up with the 30 week number. So you are right on course!

  • Means your belly is measuring 30 centimeters. Docs like to see about a centimeter a week up until about 36ish weeks.

  • you mean your belly? that means that your belly is right at the size it should be for how far along you are.

  • yeah i was waiting for someone to say that. i didn't ask because that doctor is a bitch i usually avoid being scheduled with her. i can solve that problem by choosing a best answer now.
