  • it means that the baby size is between 7 and 9 weeks pregnant. it could be 7 weeks 5 days or 8 weeks 2 days, etc..

  • it's just that it's so imprecise when they measure you like that. and everyone will measure differently. so she thinks uterus is about where it would be for a woman at 7 to 9 weeks pregnant. could be 6 weeks 5 days, could be 9 weeks 4 days, but her best guess is somewhere between 7 weeks and 9 weeks
