They measure your uterus to tell how far along you are??

Ive been measuring right this whole time but my last appointment i was 32 weeks along but measuring 34 inches? Could that just mean my baby is growing fast or could i be farther along than i thought? This confuses me

  • It's approximate. I measured ahead much of my pregnancy, and delivered 3 days early. So who knows? Due dates are approximate, too, so just try to keep that in mind. I know it's impossible, especially if your due date comes and goes and nothing. (fingers crossed that doesn't happen to you!!!) =)

  • There isn't a for sure method to know how far along the baby is in development. When I went in for my 20week ultrasound, the baby measured in as a baby in the 21 week gestation. I'm now 34weeks but I often wonder if my baby has continued on the path of being a week ahead of schedule or if he has slowed down. Just be prepared a few weeks early if you think your baby might be on the earlier development path.

  • its not exact and also remember the 2wks rule, you could be 2wks before your due date or two weeks after
