Estimated Fetal Weight From Ultrasound Results?
Tonight want to ask BPD 8.87 cm 35w6d And FL 6.99 cm 35w6d so how much is the weight of the baby in the womb ‘? ….
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Ultrasound examination is one of the most recommended examinations for pregnant women because there is a lot of information that can be obtained through this examination. Through ultrasound, it can be known whether there are abnormalities in the fetus, in amniotic fluid, in the placenta, can be known fetal sex, and also other measurements to determine whether the baby is still in the normal category or not.
Regarding your question, unfortunately the information you are conveying is still lacking to determine the estimated / estimated fetal weight (EFW) because to know this value, it also requires abdominal circumference and head circumference.
Even so, usually the measurement is actually already a package from the time of the USG examination, that one of the basic information recorded and delivered to parents is what is the estimated fetal weight that has been automatically obtained from the USG examination, and whether all values are age-appropriate pregnancy.
Therefore, although we cannot inform you of your fetal body weight due to lack of information, it is likely that you already have this information. Try to look again at your wife's pregnancy logbook that has been filled by obstetricians and see if there are EFW or certain numbers that have units of grams / gr. If not, ask the next ultrasound examination, which if your wife enters in 7-8 months, the examination should be done every 2 weeks, and every week in the 9th month. So, hopefully answering your questions.
