Hello. I am now 19 weeks pregnant, fundal height of 13 cm is normal, right?

1 Answer:

Hello En,

Thank you for the question.

Normally, at 19 weeks gestation, the weight of the fetus ranges from 200 to 280 grams, with body length ranging from 14.8 to 15.7 cm. If an external examination is performed, then your uterine fundus height (TFU, the highest part of the uterus) should be as high as 2 fingers below the navel, or about 15 to 20 cm.

Referring to your statement, when viewed from the TFU alone, it seems that your fetus is smaller than its gestational age. However, it should be understood, that evaluation of fetal conditions based solely on TFU is inaccurate, because there are many potential biases, for example due to inaccurate measurements, errors in calculating gestational age, maternal body posture, number of fetuses, amount of amniotic fluid, and fetal and placental position in utero which also varies.

Therefore, the results of the TFU examination should ideally be re-confirmed by re-examining the doctor or obstetrician. With an ultrasound examination by experts, the condition of the fetus in your womb can be evaluated more accurately and can also determine the next treatment steps.

Hope this helps ...
