Fetal Weight At 32 Weeks’ Gestation?
Hello, my 32-week-old pregnancy is calculated from hpht. On the previous ultrasound, my EFW was only 1.5 kg. Is this still in normal condition?

Pregnancy is an important time for the formation, growth and development of fetal organs. Fetus in the womb experienced a fairly rapid growth compared to when the baby had come out of the mother's womb.
32 weeks gestation indicates the gestation period has entered the third trimester. At this time, the growth and increase in fetal weight will proceed quickly in proportion to the maturation of the organs to be ready to live outside the uterine environment.
Entering the age of 31-32 weeks, the average fetal weight ranges from 1502 gr - 1702 gr. This weight will increase over time to 1918 gr when entering the age of 33 weeks. Of course, these values are averaged and not a definite benchmark, so if the fetal weight is still close to the range of values, then the estimated weight of your fetus is still likely to be normal.
Don't worry if your fetal mass tends to be smaller than the normal average fetal weight. As its development, fetal mass will increase significantly in the late third trimester. Of course this can not be separated from the role of nutrients consumed by pregnant women.
Therefore, fulfill the nutrition of pregnant women with good, healthy and balanced nutrition. Besides avoiding fatigue, stress, and meeting the needs of body fluids is very important for pregnant women. Light exercise specifically for pregnant women, especially before delivery is highly recommended so that the body stays fit and ready to face labor later.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
