Yes, but it's ok to measure a couple weeks ahead or behind. Mostly because that form of measuring the uterus has been proven to be inaccurate.

Yes, they're measuring your fundal height. The midwife told me today that you should measure within 2 cm of the week you're at in pregnancy. For example, if you're 30 weeks, then between 28-32 cm.
