# Fundus Height 32 Cm At 38 Weeks Gestation?

Hello, I want to ask, how much is my fetus if my fudus height is 32 cm and is that normal in my pregnancy 38 w

Wa'alaikumsallam Yhayha.

Uterine fundus height (TFU) is usually still used to estimate gestational age (UK) or estimated fetal weight (TBJ) by midwives, especially in remote areas where there is no ultrasound. While in areas that are more advanced and have better facilities, generally doctors or midwives who have received training, will determine the UK and TBJ to use USG. Remember, the results of these measurements, whether through TFU measurements or through an ultrasound examination, are only approximate. That is, the UK may be 1-2 weeks different from the original UK, and the weight of the baby at birth may differ greatly from these estimates.

TFU size should not be used again after pregnancy entering the age of 37-38 weeks, because in the UK, the baby's head is usually already entered the pelvis, so the TFU will go down (the value is lower than the UK should be). TFU examination is also not much reliable anymore because there are so many factors that influence it, for example the thickness of the abdominal wall and maternal fat.

Based on your TFU, the TBJ can be calculated using the formula TBJ = (TFU-N) x 155.

N can be 11, 12 or 13, based on the position of the head of the fetus whether it has been through the pelvic door or not. For example the value of N is 12. Then, your TBJ is (32-12) x 155 = 3100 grams. TBJ is certainly considered normal. Remember, these values ​​do not necessarily correspond to the baby's birth weight.

Thus my explanation, hopefully useful. Regards.
