i went to see my midwife this morning and she measured how big my tummy was. i am 32 weeks in a few days and measuring at 30.

i know that they only normally have concern if they baby is either more than 2 under or more than 2 over, but normally i am measuring a little bit over what i am
E.g at 25+5 i was just over 26cm, and at 28+5 i was measuring just over 29cm.

it wasnt my usual midwife and have never seen this one before, she didnt say anything but i dont know if this is anythin to be a bit concerned about?

I'm sure there's nothing to worry about, but you can always phone your normal midwife if it puts your mind at rest.

The tape measure method is not very accurate; my midwife doesn't bother, just has a good feel! I was consistently small with my 1st and he came out a healthy 3.4kg.
