So i went to my appt today. he measured my tummy. from the bottom of my pelvic bone (where your vagina starts i suppose) and measured all the way up to my breast line. he felt for the uterus before so he knew the spot he was measuring for. and he muttered 34. does ANYONE know what 34 means and is it where i should be for 23 weeks?

Are you sure you heard right? I think it means you are measuring as if you were 34 weeks pregnant.

I measure 34 weeks now that I am 28 weeks pregnant with twins.

however many centimeters they measure is what week you are supposed to be in.  Its not that accurate though...who knows how much water you have, how the baby is lying etc...

Are you sure he didn't say 24??

Usually they measure your uterus to make sure it's measuring the right amount of for the right week of pregnancy.

They measure in cm to see how many weeks your at.. At my last appointment I was right on the money at 26 weeks. Maybe the baby was laying funky.. I'm sure if he was worried he would let you know.
