So, I had my 1st midwife appmt. last week. She couldn't hear heart tones(I have a tipped uterus, couldn't hear w/my first 2 until 12 and 14 weeks).<br>
She couldn't feel my uterus either. I went to the OB today, just for a 2nd opinion. He did a pelvic to better check the uterus. Confirmed that it is tipped, but feels a couple weeks earlier than what I am. I know that my dates are 100% accurate. We were TTC and I kept a close record of things.<br>
I have an u/s tomorrow. My fear is that w/my uterus seeming not on track, that the baby might have stopped growing a few weeks earlier.<br>
Anyone know how accurate a uterus check would be? I can't wait to get this over with tomorrow....

I don't think the fundal height checks are all that accurate--I've met a ton of people who were told they might be having twins b/c they measured big in the beginning only to find out later there was only one. I think early on, it's not as accurate (as well as toward the end b/c baby changes position and you can go from big to small in a matter of days and back again).<br><br>
Hopefully, tomorrow you get great news--I know you must be on pins and needles right now. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"><br><br>

I've thought of you so many times since I read your post yesterday. I imagine the last 24 hours have been very difficult. Please let us know what your ultrasound revealed.<br><br>
When I had my first midwife appt, she initially said, wow, your uterus really looks big. Maybe you have two in there. And then she felt it and it felt normal for my dates. I think the pps are right in that size at this point can really vary. My fervent hope is that this is the case with you.<br><br>
