Fundal height measuring wrong

Ok so I have a question. I went to the dr yesterday for my 37 week appointment and she measured me and I was measuring 35 weeks. How is that possible? Last week I measured right on. My first baby was 10lbs 1oz. So I highly doubt its because of a small baby. But who knows she could be small, I go for an u/s in two weeks to guess the weight.

It could be the position of your baby throwing off the measurement. Two weeks behind or ahead is normal.

The baby has probably dropped - once they drop down low in your pelvis, the fundal height will decrease.
