How much is a normal fundal height 38W r nAnd why it’s been a few days when vaginal vaginal discharge came out I felt itchy, even though the vaginal discharge was still colorless d it doesn’t smell too is this normal?
Hello Mrs. Iis,
Congratulations on your pregnancy, mom
I will try to answer your one-on-one question
Fundal height measurement can be used to estimate the age and weight of the fetus in the mother's womb. As for how to measure: the mother is lying down half sitting and measurements are taken using a measuring tape. When measuring, the mother must first empty her bladder. At 38 weeks of gestation, the size of the uterine fundus height for pregnant women is generally 33 cm. The factors that affect the size of the fundus include:
the number of children born
maternal nutritional status
health problems during pregnancy
Another method of measuring fetal weight is by ultrasound (ultrasound)
Leucorrhoea can be either normal or abnormal. Normal vaginal discharge usually occurs before and after menstruation, and during pregnancy. In pregnancy, hormonal changes occur in the mother, which causes the cervix to produce excess mucus. However, if the vaginal discharge smells, is colored, a lot, and is accompanied by itching, it is necessary to suspect an infection (Read also: vaginal discharge)
For the two complaints above, the mother can consult a Gynecologist.
I hope that's what I can explain.
Hopefully it can help answer your questions.
