Do you measure your belly at home?

If so, do you measure right at the belly button or a little lower?

You have to know and be able to feel where your uterus is. I don't measure at home but I have had it done plenty of times and the dr starts at the top of my pelvic bone and feels where my uterus is and goes to that point

I've never felt for my own uterus when pregnant I'm scared too lol. How about around your back, have you been measured like that?

The uterus is generally pretty firm so you find it, feel for the top of it.    The highest point is the Fundus.

Does it make sense to measure around your back?

I don't see how that would relate to fundal height--    are you talking about for something else?
