In brief: 21 weeks

Fundal height is measured from the pubic bone to the top of the uterus.
The number in centimeters usually correlates pretty well with the number of weeks of pregnancy. Ultrasound gives a more precise gestational age. Obstetricians measure fundal height regularly to make sure the fetus is growing as expected.
