Dd1 I measured 6 weeks behind she was 3.09kg at 41+2 days
Dd2 I was 4 weeks behind she was 3.3kg at 42 weeks

My last pregnancies I always measured two cm more, and guess what? Same again with this pregnancy.

If they have concerns they will request an ultrasound for you because most obs don't trust fundal height at all because it depends on baby's position, mum's padding ad who is measuring. Between 34 and 35 weeks, my height decreased 4cm because baby had dropped and 2 different people measured. They write the number down but pay minimal attention to it if the heartbeat and movement etc are fine. It's very primitive.

My sister is short waisted and always measured ahead but babies were average size.
I'm longer in the body and fundal measured behind but babies always in 95th percentile when born, so don't think too much into it

I've been measuring smaller up until this week. I was 1-2 weeks behind. I saw my OB this afternoon and bubba is measuring 29 weeks which is spot on. Bub will catch up : )

And it's not always accurate either.

I will never forget my midwife measuring me the morning I was induced (39+2) at 44 and saying I would have a really big baby. NOT something I wanted to hear when I was being induced with my first bub and was an emotional wreck because I was being induced!!! Less then 2 days prior I was measuring 39.

I measured 21cm at 23 weeks. I t seems to me it shouldn't matter unless you stop growing AND something else is up too.

I'm only early so its more inaccurate but I measured 18cm at 17wks. I was either spot on or one week over with both my kids and they were big babies.
