Summary

The purpose of this study is to see if using a handheld ultrasound to measure a baby?s growth is the same as using a measuring tape to measure a mother?s fundal height. A woman?s fundal height is measured from the top of her uterus (where the baby is growing) to the area below her belly button where the pubic bone begins. Both of these methods are used a lot to measure how babies are growing but doctors would like to know if both of the ways come up with the same results. The handheld ultrasound device that is used in this study has been approved for use by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
