If Menses Last December, When Is The Exact Date Of The 4-month-old Fetus?
I am Maria. I had my first last menstruation on December 11th. The calculation of the midwife was born on 18 September 2019. During the first trimester, my ultrasound was the same as September 18, 2019. I did that on February 18, the ultrasound of a 9-week-old baby, 5 days, was written on the ultrasound results. All I ask is the age of the baby 16 Weeks what date huh. Want to do a prayer before the spirit is inserted into the fetus before the age of 4 months the plan. But I was confused about his estimation. Is it true that April 8, the estimated age is 16 weeks.
Hello Maria, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Calculation of gestational age that is generally used in the medical world today is quite diverse, where each method of calculation will not give definite results with each other, and each method has advantages and disadvantages of each. The method most often used to date is the calculation using HPHT and also ultrasound of the womb.
Based on a rough calculation based on the first day of your last menstrual period (HPHT), your gestational age is expected to reach 16 weeks of gestation in the range 2 - 8 April 2019, but please note that these calculations may not be the same as the calculations on USG because the calculation on ultrasound is based on the progress of growth in the fetus, so the higher the age of the uterus when and doing ultrasound, the calculation of the age of the womb will be less accurate, so it is still taken as a reference to calculate the age of the womb is your HPHT. But to ensure further, you should consult with an obstetrician to help you determine the most appropriate date when your womb is exactly 16 weeks old.
I hope this helps.
