some please help  ^pray^

on Monday i had my firstFunal Height measurement, i was so excited until my midwife
said that my fundal height does not match the baby age.
she said i measured 25 and this is supposed to measure around the same as the baby's age.

i have to go back in 3 weeks time, if it hasn't improved i have to go for a scan.

baring in mind this is my second pregnancy and I'm really pettie, my first daughter only weighed 5lb 6oz.

i am worried that there is something wrong  :(

thanks

Hi

fundal height is a difficult marker as it can be measured in very different ways, by different people.

It is dependant on a lot of factors, such as your babys position. See what your midwife measures you as next time and if you are sent for a scan then that is a more definitive way to look at your babys size and it will most probably be fine

Take care x
