"On a non-clinical level, I hope that women find visits with me enjoyable, and I personally wouldn't enjoy going anywhere where I knew a tape measure was going to be going around my girth ."
I am SO totally with you on that! laughup
As for diminished fluid volume, I just spoke with another mw who agrees with this (girth measure--from 24wks onward-- for keeping track of fluid level generally). But I have found that I can feel this with my hands on palpation (variations in fluid). Does it seem to you, Nashvillemw, that girth measure adds something to your sense of how things feel on palpation?
Just curious, thanks!
