What could it mean if your fundus has not grown any in two weeks?

It could mean several different things. Did you go to the same doctor for measurement each time? If not, each doctor measures differently - two weeks is not a long enough period of time to determine that there has been NO growth if you have different doctors measuring you, or even if the same doctor is measuring you. It's hard to get an exact measurement because there are differentials that come into play. Be sure to ask your doctor at your next appointment. If there is still no growth, I would recommend that you request an ultrasound. God Bless.

Most likely it means your doctor did not look at, or could not see despite trying, the fundus, which is the base of the eye (the retina).

Hi! I'm currently 29 weeks pregnant, according to my LMP (and ultrasound). But when I saw my doctor today, she told me my fundus measurement was slightly larger than 29 weeks. (It actually measured about 30 to 31 weeks.) She told me that sometimes the measurement can be larger or smaller depending on the baby's position. !!! RAJordan

This is the top of the uterus.

Your fundal size is just the size of your uterus measured from your pelvic bone. It is just an estimate for when you cannot actually "see" the baby. You increase your fundus size in a measured proportion. It just means that your measurement is bigger than expected for your gestational size. You could be carrying a lot of fluid or it could be a big baby (or twins!). There is nothing to worry about!

during routine prenatal visits a Doctor will measure you uterus in centimeters, your centimeters should equal gestational age. IE. 26 cm 26 weeks
