Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Monitoring the development of the fetus in the womb is important from the beginning of pregnancy until the time for delivery. In this way, the potential for fetal developmental disorders can be detected and treated early.
One way to monitor fetal development can be done with an ultrasound examination. Ideally, an ultrasound examination of the pregnancy is carried out directly by a competent obstetrician or specialist. However, the results of this ultrasound examination cannot stand alone. Further confirmation is needed by in-depth interviews with mothers, conducting physical examinations, and other supporting tests as needed.
If it is true that your pregnancy is at 24 weeks, the normal weight of the fetus can range from 500 to 700 grams, while the length ranges from 28 to 32 cm (from head to heel). Not only weight and length, several other indicators should also be considered in assessing fetal development, including biparietal diameter (BPD) and abdominal circumference (AC). At this gestational age, normal BPD can range between 5.8 to 6.5 cm and normal AC ranges between 18.6 to 20.8 cm.
You can observe from our explanation above, in general, your fetal development indicators are still in the normal range, although some appear to be slightly higher than the upper limit of their normal values.
However, as we mentioned before, you need to reconfirm this with the doctor or obstetrician who is checking, so that it is re-evaluated and compared with the results of other tests that are carried out huh ..
I hope this helps.
