Gestational Age 30 Weeks, The Placenta Begins Calcification. Fair Or Not?
At night, I am currently pregnant with 30 weeks gestational age and 2000gr fetal BB. When on ultrasound it turned out that my placenta began calcification. I want to ask if it’s normal? From the BB and the placenta. Tks
Hello Ajg26, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Fetal body weight at 30 weeks' gestation averages around 1300-1460 grams, which when compared to your current fetal weight, your fetus can be said to have a greater weight than the average fetus at other ages same pregnancy.
While liming the placenta is something that normally occurs due to increased gestational age. Based on radiological examination, calcification of the placenta can be divided into several levels so that it can be predicted whether calcification is normal at that gestational age or not. Calcification that occurs faster than it should, can be caused by several factors such as smoking, first pregnancy, and excess calcium levels in the mother's blood.
To find out what actions or recommendations you should go through during this pregnancy, it is advisable to consult further with your obstetrician. In the meantime, keep your nutritional intake and also follow all the advice given by your doctor.
I hope this helps.
