so I don't start paying attention to measure until 20 weeks or so-- and regardless of measure you are at your belly button which would be the normal "landmark" for 20 weeks- you feel plenty of movement which is fitting- plenty of growth also good .
so let me think about how I measure- start at the top of the pubic bone the measuring tape end touches the bone or if the tape has some leader on it I put that at the top /touching the pubic bone then I pull the tape up and cup the top of the uterus with my hand- and the tape goes over the curve of the uterus at the top and around some- so looking down at what number is under my pinky finger --- hard to say wait awhile and see if the growth is consistent but just lower numbers- you want about 1 cm a week--
