Gestational Age Of 35 Weeks Fetal Weight 3.125 Kg?
Morning .. yesterday I just had an ultrasound and the result was unexpected. My baby weighed 3.125 kg even though it was only 35 weeks … was it too big right? Then what should I do so that when giving birth to the baby is not getting bigger? Thank you😘
Good morning Vivisiauyou, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Based on the table estimate of fetal body weight according to gestational age, it is true that your fetal body weight exceeds the estimates that are generally owned by fetuses aged 35 weeks (generally around 2500 grams).
However, because this is only an estimate and there is no very precise method to date to determine fetal weight, your child's condition cannot be declared as a big baby until finally being born and it is proven that the birth weight is above 4000 grams.
The right therapy for this condition must be determined by an obstetrician because there are many other factors that must be considered, to keep the fetus's nutrition maintained while in the womb. So the best advice now is to consult further with your obstetrician doctor. It is not advisable to go on a diet of your own accord without supervision and advice on how to do it from your obstetrician because it can endanger your fetus's condition.
In the meantime, you are still allowed to consume the foods you normally consume, but by reducing the portions a little until there is another suggestion from your doctor.
I hope this helps.
