Hi Ms. Sitalara, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.

IUGR or what is known as intrauterine growth restriction is a condition where the growth of the baby's weight is below the 10th percentile (using a special chart) and the belly circumference is below the 2.5th percentile based on the gestational age.

The stunted growth can be due to genetic factors, placental factors, and maternal factors. Disorders of the placenta can be due to idiopathic (unknown cause), preeclampsia (impaired placental development), viral infections, and placenta previa (placenta is located under the uterine segment). Diseases in the mother can be caused by hypertension, heart disease, and diabetes.

There are 2 types of IUGR, namely symmetrical (all parts are stunted), asymmetric (parts of the brain and heart are in normal growth, while other parts are stunted).

At 32 weeks of gestation the lower limit for the estimated fetal weight is at least 1500 grams. The estimated height of the uterine fundus at 32 weeks of gestation is about 28 cm. You should consult again with an obstetrician to confirm the results of the examination you have received, and to get further examination and treatment.

Things you can temporarily do are to ensure that you continue to eat nutritious foods, get enough rest, don't do activities that take up a lot of energy or make you tired, and have regular check-ups with an obstetrician to check the development of your fetus.

Hope it is useful. Thanks.
