So in my book it says that by the end of the 7th month (which is the end of week 31) my uterus should be four inches above my belly button.

I will be starting week 31 on Friday, and my uterus already is almost to my ribs! We measured last night, and it is 7 inches from my belly button!!

It's not like we are measuring wrong either - it is clear as day to see where my uterus starts just by looking at my belly!

Is anybody else carrying extremely high? lol

I carried my daughter super high, and my poor ribs were so sore.

My ribs are the one thing that haven't hurt so far *knock on wood* lol

Even though my belly goes up high - she likes to hang out down low!! (What a space waster! lhehe) I've felt her higher up this past week, but usually she stays right below my belly button or curls up closer to my pelvis while sleeping!

This is my first pregnancy, so I'm unsure what to compare it to. But my ribs have been killing me since last month. I think he's carrying quite high - it's KILLING me.

well i wouldn't measure belly button to top, because that's just a guesstimate.

Measure CM from your pubic bone to top of uterus. # of cm should match # of weeks. if it's off, could be how baby is laying, or a number of anything
