Explanation Of Antenatal Examination Results, 6 Weeks Gestation?
Good morning, I was late for 2 weeks and after the TP the results were positive. This is the second pregnancy after the first pregnancy in a curette because of BO (Blighted Ovum) in January 2018. What I want to ask is “Is Tfu (-) at 6 weeks’ pregnancy normal?
Hello Lulu, thank you for asking.
Unfortunately I do not understand what you mean by TFU (-). Did you read through your medical record? Where do you do antenatal checks, at the midwife or doctor? TFU is a simple way to assess the extent of gestational age, by assessing the height of the fundus uteri. In nonpregnant people, the uterus will not be touched because it is only the size of a chicken egg and is located in the pelvic cavity. When someone is pregnant, the uterus will automatically enlarge. This enlargement is in line with the increase in gestational age. Thus, the upper part of the uterus (fundus uteri) becomes palpable during pregnancy.
What is meant by TFU (-) is that the fundus has not been palpated at the physical examination at this time. Generally the top of the uterus can only be felt over the pubic bone (pubic bone) at 12 weeks gestation. Even then, the new uterine fundus is palpated just a few centimeters. So, it should still be included in the fairness limit if at 6 weeks gestation, your TFU has not been palpated. You don't need to worry too much first. The most important thing is to make sure you routinely exercise control during pregnancy at the midwife or doctor, so that if a problem occurs, it can be detected immediately and get treatment.
Hopefully this answer is quite helpful. Regards.
