measuring fundle height as end of pregnancy, usually starts to go down or not grow?

Okay I know , with so many babies, I should know this, but I do not record anything down, and then I do not remember what exactly it was with last pregnancy. lol

But usually when you get to about the last 5 weeks of pregnancy your height does not usually grow, or sometimes it actually goes down, because baby is dropping and getting ready to deliver.

Anyone continue to get bigger in fundle height after 35.5 weeks?

I did. Mine jumped quite a bit with ds1. I don't remember my fundal height before delivery. I do know what it was at delivery though. I remember the shocked look on the doctors face when he saw the size of my belly plus his immediate demand for a measuring tape. I was 47 centimeters. Not surprising once baby was born. He measured in at 22 1/2 inches and weighed in at 10lbs 8oz. I do remember being on the bigger side at my prior appointments. However not that big. I am only 5'1" tall.

I too am 5.1 and 35.5 weeks maybe 35 weeks. And measuring 39 weeks. And gained the most ever somewhere between 35 and 37 lbs. pregnancy I was either 92 or 94 lbs.

I usually do measure ahead but near then end from what I remember always just leveled right on target and then pretty sure go a little less as close to date.

Do you tend to deliver early/late/right on schedule?

I forgot to add my baby was born on his due date.

Have had all situations, along with being 4 to 5 cms dialated 4 weeks before. lol

My last was 5 days over, baby before that was 1 week early, baby before that was 13 days late. I have had others early, late and on time.

At 32 weeks I measured 33 centimeters. At 34 weeks I measured 32 centimeters. I have an appointment tomorrow at 36 weeks and will let you know if I grew or shrank!

I am 5 1.5" and measured 3-4 weeks ahead for most of the pregnancy but started leveling off around 34 I think. I ended up 41 cm at 40 weeks.

I'm 5'6" & fundal height put me at 41-42 wks from about 33wks on...I had been measuring 8-9 wks ahead the whole time, but the last few weeks definitely slowed.

Fundal height typically peaks around 36 weeks, and then goes down a bit. Mine has gone up a bit after 36 weeks though.
