    Just had my 34 week appointment. All went ok, apart from my measurements are exactly the same as they were 3 weeks ago, so she's given me an extra appointment for next week to see if I grow anymore! (been measured 3 times in past 3 weeks and been 33cm all times).

    Just looked in my notes and for presentation she's put 'ceph' and under fifths palpable she's wrote 'brim'. I've heard you ladies on here talk about 3/5 and 2/5 etc but never brim, so just wondered what it meant?

    :)
