In previous pregnancies, I've always been spot on! My MW usually starts at 16wks. But, she didn't start this time. She felt mine, and my fundal height is already way off. It's much higher than it should be, and she didn't want to have to note it just yet. I'd had an U/S at 9wks and 12wks, only one baby, and again an elective at 16wks, again one baby, so she said there was no need to send me 3 days later for another one. If there is a "surprise twin" then she's sure it'll show up at my anatomy scan in a couple weeks, LOL. Although, she thinks it's just scar tissue from my previous sections holding my uterus up higher.
She didn't want to measure to cause me any alarm as to how high it is already. Let me just say, though, at 18.5wks, it's already above my belly button...it's supposed to be about even with your belly button at 20wks
She thinks it'll even out.
Oddly enough, I still don't look pregnant to people who don't know even with it being so high. I haven't had any strangers ask, and I am still having to tell people we're expecting again when they look at my three boys and ask if we're going to have another or if we're done, LOL....um....yeah, we're having another and I'm already near halfway, too. The look on their face is priceless and it's a great laugh!
