Hello Selvia, Thank you for the question.


Measuring the height of the uterine fundus (height at the top of the uterus) is one way to estimate your gestational age. Fundal height measurement is done by measuring the distance from the pubic bone (pubic bone) to the top of the uterus to determine the highest part of the uterus that can be felt from the skin of the body. This measurement is usually done using a meter (with results in centimeters) or with a rough measurement using a finger with the navel / umbilicus / center and xyphoideus processus / lower part of the sternum (example of measurement results: 2 fingers below the center). From this measurement you will know the approximate age of your pregnancy, in your case it is 30 weeks. However, the measurement of fundal height is not an accurate measurement. Therefore, to ensure the age of pregnancy and the health of your baby, please consult directly with an obstetrician and gynecologist for an ultrasound examination. From this ultrasound examination, you will find a more accurate gestational age based on measurements of several parts of the baby's body.


Hope this information is useful.
