Last night I had a pregnancy control at the age of 34 w. at the age of 32 w, the size of the abdominal circumference of the fetus is 28.84 cm. last night, age 34w the size of the ac is 27.20 cm. Is it possible that there could be a decrease in the circumference of the abdomen?rnOr a measurement error occurred because during the ultrasound, the baby was moving constantly.

1 Answer:

Hi Arif,

Abdominal circumference of the fetus or abdominal circumference is one measure that is checked during pregnancy control. Later, the size of the abdominal circumference will be combined with the size of the head circumference, the length of the femur, and the length of the right and left temples and then processed by an ultrasound machine into the estimated fetal weight (TBJ) as well as the estimated gestational age and estimated day of birth.

In general, the abdominal circumference of a 33-34 week fetus is 29-30 cm. The decrease in the size of the abdominal circumference can be influenced by bias factors during ultrasound examination, and the small fetus. Small fetuses can be affected by poor nutritional intake, disorders of the placenta, genetic disorders, anemia in the mother, exposure to cigarette smoke, alcohol, and drugs. Has the estimated weight of the fetus also decreased?

You should consult your ultrasound results again with your obstetrician to get a more detailed explanation. You can also do a pregnancy control in 2 weeks or according to the schedule given by the obstetrician. While waiting for pregnancy control, make sure you get enough fluids and nutrients during pregnancy, get enough rest, avoid stress, and start preparing for labor.
