Don't worry.  The external measurement does not mean a lot.  Some women don't have a lot of muscle tone, and the uterus sticks out.  Others have a baby with a lie that makes him stick out.  If there is a problem when you have an ultrasound, talk to the doctor.  But don't let a measurement with a tape measure make you think anything is wrong.
