What is Fundal Height? Fundal Height is a way to measure a pregnant belly to see if the gestational age is compatible with the uterus size. A baby growing inside of the womb of a pregnant woman will have a Fundal height measurement in centimeters that will match closely if not exactly with the amount of weeks the mother is pregnant. For example, a woman who is 33 weeks pregnant should have a Fundal height measurement of 32-34 centimeters.
How do I measure my Fundal Height with the Mommy Measure? Place the beginning of the Mommy Measure on the top of the pubic bone and stretch out the tape to the top of the uterus. Next, mark your measurement on the centimeter marks on the scale to measure your Fundal Height.
One centimeter represents one week of pregnancy. For the most accurate measurement, have your Dr. measure your Fundal Height.
