Appointments with your health care provider

Your visit to your health care provider this month may focus on tracking the growth of your baby and watching for any problems with your own health.

As during your visit last month, your health care provider can gauge the size of your uterus by checking the fundal height — the distance from the top (fundus) of your uterus to your pubic bone. This month your fundal height will probably be about 21 to 24 centimeters — roughly equal to the number of weeks of your pregnancy.

In addition to performing the fundal height test, your health care provider may check your weight and blood pressure and evaluate your baby's heart rate. Your health care provider may also ask you about any signs and symptoms you may be experiencing.
