Is HPL Backing Out Is It Reasonable?
In the morning, yesterday I had an ultrasound weight of my fetus in 1879gr. It turned out that he was 32w when he was supposed to be 35w. I become confused

Pregnancy is a physiological condition that is carried out by a mother in an effort to continue heredity. During pregnancy, examination during pregnancy is an effort that must be done by pregnant women to find out the growth and development of the fetus and the health of the mother-fetus. With routine pregnancy checks to the obstetrician, the doctor can find out whether there are health problems or problems that occur during pregnancy.
During the pregnancy check-up period, the doctor will determine the gestational age of the mother based on her previous menstrual history and / or based on an ultrasound examination. So that information obtained from the suitability of maternal gestational age to fetal body weight is appropriate. If found differences in the value of fetal weight for gestational age, the doctor can provide recommendations for pregnant women to improve nutritional status and reduce the burden of risky activities during pregnancy.
In connection with your question, if you have correctly calculated your gestational age based on the first day of last menstrual period (Hpht), then the results of an ultrasound examination can provide information on fetal weight or examination indicators that are not as they should be. This can be caused by fetal weight that is difficult to rise because your nutritional intake is less than optimal or because of your excessive activity so it does not compensate with rest.
at around 32-33 weeks' gestation, the estimated fetal weight can range from 1810gr to fetal height of around 40cm. at around 35 weeks' gestation, fetal weight can range from 2250-2500gr. The increase in maternal weight at 32 weeks' gestation can range from 8.4kg, while at 35 weeks around 9.5-10kg.
differences in the calculation of gestational age can be caused by incorrect calculation of Hpht or because the energy intake of pregnant women is not optimal so it does not support fetal weight gain. If the Hpht is correct, then this condition is less reasonable, and you have to pursue the appropriate weight difference, and you still have plenty of time for it.
However, you should continue to have discussions with your obstetrician. Because your doctor is more understanding of your pregnancy condition and your health condition. By having a direct discussion, you will find out the cause of this difference in gestational age assessment. And your doctor can also recommend the right treatment for you. In addition, it's better if you don't change your obstetrician to get a more consistent evaluation of pregnancy checks.
