    Default 37 weeks pregnant- worried my belly is too small

    I'm due in exactly 3 weeks and I'm worried my belly is too small.

    Here is a pic- any thoughts? ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1371643189.367802.jpg

    Your bump is gorgeous, I've seen smaller & larger! Don't worry, everyone carries differently.

    My tummy changes all the time depending on how bubs is laying and what I have it haven't eaten/drank

    What does your ob or midwife say? I think it looks fine, everyone is different.

    My ob measured my fundal height which was spot on, but still sent me for growth scans because I looked small. Bub was measuring a little smaller than average but within normal ranges

    It's bigger than mine was at 37 weeks and I delivered a healthy 7 pound 3 oz baby

    Just eyeballing it, I reckon it would measure 37cm. Looks like its right underneath your boobs, which is pretty much fullterm as well.

    I don't think its small at all....

    I was pretty compact the whole way through. DD was on the smaller side but healthy (3.065kg). If you're getting plenty of movements and your OB or middy is happy I wouldn't worry.

    I think you're looking fine. Your midwives/ob should measure your fundal height, what do they say?
    I have a pretty small bump but my fundal height is spot on so I just carry more insidely than others.

    Me (mid contraction) at 38+5. DS was 8.5 pounds. If the midwife/doc isn't worried, you shouldn't be! Relax and enjoy the next few weeks!

    Hi ladies

    I had a midwife appt last Wednesday which was 36 weeks and they did my fundal measurement and I measured 35 weeks.

    Have GP appt tomorrow so she will measure again then.

    Because I'm doing shared care with my GP I just worry that she will refer me to hospital.

    Don't have another appt at hospital until overdue appt!
