Yes, I'm talking with the tape measure. Haven't had an ultrasound since 20 weeks. My midwife isn't concerned or anything - he's been growing consistently and she says 2 weeks small is fine, as long as it isn't more than that. I'm just curious about experiences like yours. I'm not tall though - 5' 4".

I know I just have to wait and see, but I'm so terribly curious about how big this baby boy will be. I'm not patient!
