hi wise mamas,
i had a midwife appointment today (13 weeks on the nose), and she thought it was very strange that my fundus reaches halfway to my navel--more like one at 16 weeks. i'm very sure of my dates because: i know my cycles; we had an ultrasound at 8 weeks after a bleeding scare at which it was determined that we were measuring 5 days big, well within the standard deviation; and there is a foolproof sign--a few days after i become pregnant, i start needing to get up in the middle of the night to pee. it's very handy.
so anyway, i'd like to know whether any of you has experienced this, and what it meant, if anything. so far i know the possibilities are: twins (nope, ultrasound showed one peanut), a fibroid (nope, see above), the possibility that what we are feeling is some other organ that has spontaneously become the size of a softball and nearly as firm (eek), and just a really big or high up uterus. my midwife's opinion is that we should wait and see where we are at 20 weeks. our next appointment will be in four weeks.
thanks in advance for any experience or wisdom on this!
edited to add: hi, i'm a doof. i meant to post this to the "i'm pregnant" forum.
