hey !! i had my 26 week check up yesterday... i measured 26cms .... but honestly i wouldnt worry at all , im sure they would of sent u to see a consultant if they were worried... also i think everyones bumps grow at different rates, when u got back again now u might have slowed down... as i was measured 3 weeks ago and i was 25cms then but before that i had growth spurt out of nowhere !!
i dont think its the length i think its the head size we need to worry about he he x x

hmmm do you think my husband being 6ft 8 might have something to do with it???

hey ive been the same hun, at 26wks was measuring 30 and at 28 was measuring 34cm so a whopping 6 weeks ahead, im due to see midwife again on tues and if im still big then ill be sent for a growth scan. they dont normally do much early on as theres a chance that it may even out, you might find when u go to your next apt that you havnt grown which is normal xxx

At 28 weeks, my baby's legs were measuring 34 weeks... Dread to think what next growth scan (on Wednesday) will show...
ps- Both my hubby and I are 6 ft... I have 35 inch legs - think missy is taking after me!!

6ft 8?!?! that might have something to do with it lmao!
I shouldn't worry too much though. I measured 3-4 weeks UNDER through my whole pregnancy and had a 8lb 14oz baby so I don't think measurements of your tummy are a very accurate size-guesser for babies lol

mrs buttons, 35 inch legs?! wow! mine are 29inches lmao I'm so short lol!

How many DPO did you get a BFP????
Hi ladies, How early did you all get a positive test? The 2ww is so hard 😂 however I've had lots of belly cramps 4/5 DPO so hoping this could be a sign!
