  • If doc isn't concerned, I wouldn't be either. Hopefully your baby drops soon and you can free your ribs of that sweet little presence. We all know how much relief that can bring to those lungs!

  • Fundal height is a really rough estimate of how big you are. I wouldn't be concerned with the measurement. The doctor is more concerned with whether you are progressing and growing, which you seem to be. Try not to worry too much, mama! =)

  • In this day and age with Doctors so super aware of lawsuits etc, if he is not concerned you have no need to. If a dr gets even a twinge of a hint of a possible concern they have you booked in for every test imaginable, they can't afford to have you sue them for dismissing a warning sign - so if he says it's no problem, then it really isn't. Enjoy these last few weeks **sigh** I miss being pregnant :-)
