Doctors may measure belly size as a ballpark to see if the baby's growth is on track. It's far from accurate though. The idea is that after 20weeks the measurement from the pubic bone to the top of the uterus should match the gestation. For example, If you are 26weeks along, it should be about 26cm from your pubic bone to the top of the uterus. As long as it's within a centimeter or two you're considered on track for growth.
