I had my prenatal appointment yesterday and she didn't measure my stomach. I thought by now the doctor was suppose to? I'm 19 1/2 weeks and now do not go back for a month. Is your doctor doing this yet?

I was measured the last two appts. At 17 and 20 weeks. At 17 weeks I measured 14cm and yesterday at 20 I measured 19. I don't think it becomes reliably accurate until after 20 weeks anyway so maybe your doc just wants to wait one more appt?

My doctor started measuring me at my 21 week appt where I measured right on target... hang in there... I am sure at your next appt she will measure you.

Mine hasn't measured me yet, and I'm not sure when she'll start.

I was measured first at my 20w check-up, I'm sure they will at your next appointment!

My doctor doesn't do it until 20 weeks so I'm sure you'll get measured the next time.

Mine didn't either at my appt yesterday. I thought he would have by now too. So after he left, my husband grabbed the measuring tape and I jumped back on the table. He measured out where 18/19 cm is so I could see

I've never been measured before 20 weeks in any of my pregnancies so maybe 20 weeks is the magic number for the drs around here too.

Mine is. I had my 20 weeks appt yesterday and I measured right on at 20cm.

By 19 weeks its part of the normal to be measured at each appt, that is really kinda strange.
