1cm is totally within the range of normal. I've never measured more than 38cm, but had all my babies at about 40 weeks, 3 8lb babes and 1 9lb4oz.

I've been measuring 1-3 weeks behind since week 25 or so. The first time I was 3 weeks (cms) behind and had a u/s to make sure everything was normal, and it was, so there hasn't been any concern since.

My perinatalogist told me that if you are within 3cms you are normal. At my last appt my OB measured and he told me I was right on and I measured 36, but was 35 weeks.

Yup, 1 cm is nothing to worry about. I was 31 cm at my 32 week appt, I'll find out tomorrow where I am for 34 weeks.

I have measured 1cm behind at every midwife visit except for the one at 28 weeks. Then at my 30 week, back to 1 behind. No Worries!!
