Calculate Gestational Age Based On LMP?
want to ask about gestational age. My HPTP on 07 months 04 2019 I am married on 11 months 4 2019 I think if you are in that place, how many weeks of my pregnancy?
Hello Emailea Tanjung,
Gestational age is enough months at delivery is 37-42 weeks. Various methods commonly used in clinical practice to estimate the age of the uterus are in the following ways:
Based on HPHT (First Day of Last Menstruation). So what is taken is the first date of menstruation in the last menstrual period. For example, in your 4th month of your period from 7-11, the HPHT is 04-07-2019. Means that today your obstetrical age is approximately 26 weeks with the estimated delivery date of January 12, 2020. Estimated delivery based on HPHT can differ by ultrasound of about 1-2 weeks.
Based on the height of the uterine fundus (the top of the uterus) which can be palpated. Several formulas can be used for estimating fetal age. In addition there are also rough estimates for example, age 20 weeks as high as the navel, 36 weeks 1-2 fingers under the protrusion beneath the bone xyphoideus process (middle of the chest)
Fetal anthropometric measurements using ultrasound examination. The tool can convert the results of measurements of the distance between the diameter of the gestational sac, head end to buttocks, fetal head circumference, fetal abdominal circumference, fetal femur bone length into estimated fetal age and also the estimated date of delivery.
Consult with your midwife or obstetrician about the health condition of you and your fetus during pregnancy. If there are complaints of vaginal bleeding, more frequent abdominal contractions, and reduced fetal movements, visit the nearest hospital immediately. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
