My fundal height matched my weeks until I was 35 weeks, when it measured 33cm. Today the mw measured it and at first she said 34cm, then checked the chart and remeasured. She said if she stretched it, it was 35cm, so I guess it's between 34-35cm. The heart tones are good and the baby is still moving as usual, but I'm concerned about the size.
We didn't see the mw for a month. Now I'm really regretting not having measurements for all of that time and I'm freaking out a little, reading about Intrauterine Growth Restriction and all of the risks associated with it. I saw a doctor twice in my second trimester when we were considering doing shadow care. They spent most of our appointment times pushing for testing and ultrasounds for everything under the sun so we discontinued care and went exclusively with the midwife. Now I'm really uncomfortable calling them up for a NST or ultrasound. Of course I'll do it if I feel I need to. The mw basically said to go with my instincts on whether it was needed or not. I'm going to call her tomorrow when I've had time to think about it more clearly, but I was wondering if anyone here had insight or experience with this. I appreciate any response. DH isn't even home tonight and I'm just freaked out trying to sort through it.
