So...at my last 3 weekly appointments, my fundal measurement has been exactly the same: 34cm. I basically appear to have stopped growing nearly a month ago. Should I be concerned about that? I still feel baby move and his/her HB was fine at last week's appointment, but I worry about restricted growth...

I did the same thing the last month or so. I don't think its a big concern.

Im sure if there was anything to worry about your dr/midwife/ob/who ever it was would have suggested something Maybe you just have a small bubba?

I think positioning has a lot to do with it, so maybe baby has just been in a different position each time? I wouldn't worry too much, movement is the best sign that all is well!

I was going to say what Cheryl said, about the baby's position affecting the measurements.

I responded in our DDC but do you feel like baby has dropped? Because I think when they drop the fundal height won't measure the same. If your midwife isn't worried about it then it's probably not a big deal, but I'd still ask just to ease my mind.

baby hasn't really dropped at all, and has been leaning up against my left side at every appointment, so not really sure what's going on. OB doesn't seem concerned so I guess everything is fine, it just makes me nervous that I have an intrauterine growth restriction or something. But I guess that would be causing other obvious problems, right?

baby could be tucked up in your ribcage giving you an off reading too.
Have you asked your midwife or the OB? Have you been gaining weight but not showing it? It could just be there was a lot of room in there to start with and now baby is just taking up more of it without stretching.
