Difference In Fetal Weight With Fetal Age?
, I want to ask yesterday, I was pregnant, and it says that the size is according to the age, but the circumference of the stomach is bigger like the age of 38 weeks and the weight is like the age of 37 weeks … is it still reasonable? 34.19 cm and efw 3.1 kg, and the doctor recommends the GDA test and the test and results are normal, why is there a difference in the difference between bpd ac and efw y? Thanks jwbanx

Ultrasonography or ultrasound is a specific examination that is useful for monitoring fetal growth in the uterus. Through this examination, the estimated gestational age, estimated age of birth, fetal weight, sex, amount of amniotic fluid, placental / placental condition can be determined.
AC (abdominal circumference) is the fetal abdominal circumference, BPD (biparietal diameter) is the circumference of the fetal head while EFW (estimation fetal weight) is an estimate of fetal weight in the uterus. At the age of 35 weeks, the estimated normal fetal weight is in the range of 2300 grams to 2600 grams. Measurement of estimated fetal weight can be detected automatically based on examination of fetal components examined from ultrasound.
Differences in the results of the components examined and not according to the age of the fetus may occur. Some cases can be found fetuses that have accelerated growth compared to normal so that the estimated weight does not match his age. The mother's condition can affect the fetus, for example if the mother has increased sugar levels, so a GDA examination is highly recommended.
We recommend that you do a repeat USG examination in the next 1-2 weeks. Serial ultrasound examination can help evaluate the condition of the fetus. In addition, pregnant women who have entered the third trimester are required to carry out more frequent checks, namely every 2 weeks and at least 2 times USG during the final trimester.
A more specific examination into the fetomaternal section is highly recommended to assess the presence or absence of congenital disorders or diseases that may be present in your fetus. Discuss with your obstetrician so that you get more complete and relevant information regarding your condition.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
