Amanda, you sound pretty happy. Im glad things are going well for you. I like being pregnant too :)

As for the fundal height, 2 or 2.5 cms smaller than average is really not much, and it seems even less significant because in your case, it happened with your daughter, too.

And dont worry about the positioning quite yet, the baby still has PLENTY Of room and time to switch into a head-down position. At 32 weeks mine is still flip-flopping between head-down and breech position, and I am not really worried yet :)

I wouldn't worry about about measuring a half a cm small. My doctor doesn't even measure fundal height as he says it's inaccurate and should only be used as a guideline anyway. I'm glad you're feeling good and loving your belly. I love mine too! I agree about the Vertex issue, mine always goes back to breech and it's definitely getting tight in there.
