1 Answer:

Hi


Thank you for the question. Measurement of uterine fundal height (TFU) is to estimate gestational age. One of the measurement techniques is to use the Mc Donald technique. This method is done by measuring the TFU from the top edge of the pubis to the top of the uterus (fundus uteri) using a tape measure.


So that the estimated gestational age is as follows:

12 weeks: 3 fingers above pubis
16 weeks: between the symphysis and the navel
20 weeks: 3 fingers below the navel
24 weeks: navel height
28 weeks: 1/3 above belly button
34 weeks: 1/2 center and sternum
36 weeks: at breastbone level
40 weeks: 2 fingers below the sternum

If your TFU is 27 cm, then your gestational age can be estimated using the Mc Donald formula: Gestational age in weeks = TFUx 8/7 = 27x8/7 = 30.8 weeks. This result should be equated with the first day of the last menstrual period (LMP) and the ultrasound results to confirm your gestational age.


TFU calculation can change, is strongly influenced by several things, including:


Examiner's attitude: not careful when checking, not using a rigid meter


The patient, the patient does not empty the bladder first during the examination, the patient's position should be half sitting during the examination to prevent blood circulation disorders.


Therefore, you don't need to worry, the estimated gestational age using TFU is in accordance with the calculation of gestational age based on the first day of the last menstrual period. Our advice, you should regularly check your pregnancy with a midwife or obstetrician to control the health of the fetus and mother.


I hope this information is helpful
