Normal Fetal Weight At 33 Weeks’ Gestation?
Bismillaah..Hello doctor, I want to ask, I am 33 weeks pregnant, the doctor stated that the weight of my fetus reached 2255 grams … Is the weight still normal? Or more? Thank you
At 32-36 weeks of pregnancy, the weight of a normal baby is around 2000gr, with a length of 44cm. It seems that the weight of your fetus has exceeded the normal limit, but it still needs to be considered other things that affect it, for example: heredity, the length of the baby at the time, diseases of pregnant women such as Diabetes, and others. Please discuss this with the doctor who is treating you.
Generally the baby's head is down, in a position ready for birth, with a cranium that is still not too strong and not yet fully formed which will indeed be useful during the birth process later. The brain and nervous system at this age have developed perfectly.
Thus the explanation, hopefully it helps.
