Fundal height, how many weeks and how many baby's poll

I am 15wks 2d and my fundus is at my belly button. As far as I know only one baby but my Dr has probably the oldest u/s machine in the world(she uses it to confirm pregnancy and make sure the baby is where it should be and sends you to a place for the 20 wk u/s) so I'm not convicted that there's only one because of my size.

I'm 13 weeks 2 days & mine is about two inches below my belly button... I think. I'm finding it hard to tell. I have a little extra "padding" in the tummy area as this is my fourth pregnancy smile.gif

I have tried to feel mine on my own and I swear it feels like it's already at my belly button.  I might be feeling wrong though as I have a layer of fat to feel through.  I have my first appointment tomorrow, so I'll report back!  I'm 11w5d today.  I can't imagine I'd have twins, we have zero history on both sides of the family.

At 12 weeks my MW measured my fundus two finger widths below my belly button and she said my uterus was perfect :) This morning I was checking and now at 14 weeks it feels like just about 1 finger width below my belly button. I had a dating ultrasound at 11w1d and there was only one in there. This is my third pregnancy past 7.5 weeks. I also have a layer of fat to feel through but I can feel my uterus pretty clearly.

I am 13. 5 weeks and right at my belly button.  At my my appt. a week and a half ago (12 weeks) I was measuring 15 and just under my belly button. This is my 4th and I am not sticking out much. I just seem to be growing up.

I'm so glad I read this!  I'm 11w5d and my fundus is just below my belly button too!  And I've already gained 9 pounds and have had more morning sickness than with my other 4, so I was beginning to worry a little.

My concern is that the missed one. I would be excited to have twins. The last 3 pregnancies I had been thinking about it.

Alright, I had my appointment today.  She showed me how I was feeling it wrong, and showed me where to feel it.  I needed to use more pressure and get down there more.  I'm measuring right on for 12 weeks.  It's an inch or a little more below my bellybutton.
