Explanation Of The Results Of Pregnancy Ultrasound Examination?
Excuse me, I am currently pregnant at 30 w1d. Yesterday I got an ultrasound measurement of 8.01cm BPD equivalent to 32w1d GA, AC 25.1cm equivalent to 29w2d GA, EFW 1.51kgDjj fetus 161bpmWhat I asked .. I saw the 30week pregnancy size chart, the BPD size My fetus is overweight, and the AC is actually lacking … I’m afraid … Can I conclude that my fetus is thin seeing the size of the AC that is lacking? Or is it normal to have a much larger BPD size? And about DJJ, my doctor said normal, but according to the book I read normal DJJ 120-160bpm, what is the sign that my baby is strees / tachycardia and needs to be done NST ?? Thank you doctor
Thank you for the question.
If it is true that your estimated age is 30 weeks 1 day, then the normal fetal measurement results in your uterus will range:
Heart rate 120-160 times per minute. Estimated fetal weight (EFW) 1300-1500 grams Estimated fetal length (EFL) 39-40 cm Biparietal diameter (BPD) 75-80 mm Femur length (FL) 56-62 mm Head circumference (HC) 275-285 mm Abdominal circumference (AC) 255-265 mm Of course, as mentioned above, the figures constitute "range", not an absolute benchmark. Not too significant difference in the results of your fetal examination may still be considered a reasonable variation because it is influenced by the time of examination. Although indeed, in some rare conditions, abnormalities can also result in an abnormality.
To evaluate whether or not the condition of your fetus is normal, ideally you need to reconfirm the results of the examination with a doctor or obstetrician who checks it ... Because, the ultrasound examination is only supporting its nature. So the interpretation must be compared with the physical examination conducted also other supporting tests conducted.
I hope this helps.
