    My midwife said I was a week behind at 37 weeks but not to worry because she was using the measuring tape? I was back on track at my 38 week appt. If you are worried why not see the midwife again? They will be able to re assure you..

    Then that's perfect!!! You get a couple of cm either side of your gestation, to account for user error.

    I measured 36 weeks when I gave birth at 41 + 4. I was told that he would be on the small side because I was measuring 5+ weeks behind.

    My son was born 4.2kgs (9 and half pounds). He was so big, that nurses from other wards came up to see him, because they "heard there was a huge baby"

    Fundal means NOTHING imo.

    I think you look very normal sized. It's amazing how well babies can tuck up with their flexible limbs.

    I think your belly looks fine. I was worried that my belly was to small with dd2 but when she was born at 38+2 she weighed 9lb2oz and was 56 cm long

    Looks perfectly fine to me.

    This was mine a few days before DS3 arrived last week at 39+5 and he was a healthy 7pd

    I don't think you look small at all. Everyone thought I was 6 months at 9 months.
