When you measure you fundal height - where do you start?

Okay I have been measuring for many many pregnancies, but I think I always do it on the short end. lol Not measuring as much as I should. You know so I do not get ahead of myself. lol I start the tape only at the pubic bone. I do not go onto it at all. But when they measure you at the clinic they actually measure on top of the pubic bone some - don't they. How much onto it do you go?


Thanks muchly

So like a full inch down from the top of the pubic bone? So it would be 1 inch of actual pubic bone plus the rest of your fundal height? Wow yep that gets me measuring ahead.

At the start of the pubic bone.
