fundal height and heart rate and oh my

Postby delightfuldoula » Sat Jan 11, 2014 4:40 am

So I was thinking I was kind of right on track it terms of fundal height and tummy size ect but this morning I woke up and felt this huge bump just to the left of my belly button. I pulled down the covers and felt and sure enough it was hard and the top of my uterus. I got out my Doppler and the only place I could find the babies heart was right on top of my belly button. It was in the 160's so I know its babies. I am 15 weeks 5 days today isn't that a bit early for my fundus to be the high up? 8O I was looking on line and at 16 weeks they say it should be midway between pubic bone and belly button am I making a giant?

I am no expert on fundal height and prob wont get a first measurement until next week at 19wks however at my 14 week appt my doctor could not find baby's hb below the navel. He tried n tried and tried and nothing. So he said let me check up a little he went exactly to the right side of the top of my belly button and BAM there it was. I knew that tho because I had been feeling faint movements from time to time like it was baby's fav hangout spot. Now i'm almost certain my fundal height will be above belly button. Its really hard up high.

It's crazy how high they get! It seems like I grow much faster with subsequent pregnancies.
