Belly shrinking ?

Has anyone else had their belly measurement get smaller as they got further along. I was measuring 2 weeks a head and then a week behind and yesterday I measured 3 weeks behind. I had a growth ultrasound April 4 and baby was in the 71% so she said I am fine. She thought maybe how she was laying made me measure smaller but she has been at this angle since she had been head down for the last 6 weeks. Just curious if anyone else had had this.

At the very end, yes.

I measured 2 weeks behind, then more and more.

Re: Belly shrinking ?

Are you meaning girth or uterus size?

I have been measuring my girth (distance around at my widest point) since embryo transfer (November 12). I have been fairly consistent in going up, but there was one day where I clearly measured wrong. If I throw out that measurement, I am going up about 1/4 of an inch a week, every week.
11/12 - 31 inches
11/27 - 34.5 inches
12/6 - 33.5
12/13 - 33.75
12/20 (8w) - 34.5
12/27 - 34 7/8
1/3 - 35.5
1/10 - 35.75
1/17 - 36
1/24 (13w) - 36.25
1/31 - 36.5
2/7 - 36.75
2/14 - 37
2/21 - 37.375
2/28 - 37.5
3/7 - 37.75
3/14 - 38.25
3/21 - 38.5
3/28 (22 w) - 38.75
4/4 - 39.25
4/11 - 39.75
4/18 - 40.0

I did, but it was a student dr instead of my regular ob. I asked about it next visit and reg dr, just sort of shook his head and said not to worry about it.

Dr also said the fundal measurement gets less accurate as you get further along. I think because the baby starts settling down into the pelvis.

Re: Belly shrinking ?

My stomach measured smaller today, my midwife says it was because my LO was on the side of me and not the middle as usual.
