Normal Fetal Weight At 6 Months Of Gestation?
Tonight, I Kiki is currently pregnant at 27 weeks, last Sunday (26 weeks) I checked with the doctor. The baby’s weight has entered 1050gram, said the baby doctor is big, and told not to eat much sweet, is the weight too big? What is the ideal fetal weight at 26 weeks, in fact? thank you
Hello, Kiki Pratiwi, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Estimated weight and length of the fetus in each person must be different, but the normal average at 6 months of gestation (weeks 26-28) range of fetal weight is between 660-1000 grams with a length of 35-38 cm. So according to this range your baby's weight range is heavier than normal.
To reduce the risk of a baby being born with a weight that is too large, routine control and eating arrangements are needed as stated by the doctor. A fetus that is too large can increase the risk of several conditions, such as difficulty in having a normal birth, a baby's shoulder squeezed during the normal birth process, perineal tears (the area of the skin between the vagina and the anus) are too large, and an increased risk for a cesarean delivery.
So, you should follow your doctor's advice to limit sweet foods and sugars in accordance with those recommended by doctors. Limiting sugary foods and sugar can help you control blood sugar and prevent diabetes in pregnancy. You can eat vegetables, fruit, and protein according to doctor's rules and do pregnancy exercise (consult your doctor first). Stay in control of your routine to see your doctor to ensure the health of the fetus and your health.

That's all, hopefully it's useful.
