Abdominal Size During 24 Weeks Of Pregnancy?
Morning, I want to ask r nThe age of my pregnancy is 24 weeks, but the size of my stomach is fairly small like the age of 4 months, yesterday I checked the ultrasound in my subscription and the results were normal, according to the doctor what? Do you need an ultrasound check at a bigger place like a hospital or what?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Big or small stomach can be very subjective. To confirm this, you need to see yourself directly to the doctor or obstetrician so that a more in-depth examination, including for example by anthropometric measurements (your weight and height), fundal height measurements, to supporting examinations, such as ultrasound (ultrasonography).
When the womb is 24 weeks old, the height of the fundus (the highest part of the uterus) normally ranges from 2 fingers above the navel. At this age your fetus in your womb weighs around 600 grams, with a body length of around 30 cm. The fundal height may appear smaller than the age of the womb due to several reasons:
Erroneous calculation of obstetrical height errors Measurement of fundal height Abnormal fetal position, for example transversely Obstacles to fetal development in the womb Amniotic fluid (oligohydramnios), etc. the condition of your pregnancy is still reasonable, or does it require special intervention.
In the meantime, you should focus on fulfilling the nutritional needs of the fetus in your womb, which is by eating a variety of foods that are healthy and rich in nutrition, including meat, fish, poultry, eggs, vegetables, fruits, and also whole grains. Drink enough, especially water. If your doctor prescribes you a pregnancy supplement, take the supplement as the doctor recommends. Avoid smoking, consuming alcohol, and always living a healthy lifestyle.
Hope this helps ...
