Normal Fundal Height At 9 Months Gestation Over 3 Weeks?
I am already 39w4d pregnant and my fundus size is 30 with my body weight is now 75.5 whether it is still considered normal, right, with the following fundus size?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, what is your weight and height before pregnancy?
At 39 weeks' womb, the average fundal height is 33 to 38 cm, or about 2 fingers below the lower sternum. Meanwhile, achieving normal weight during pregnancy can vary depending on your body mass index (BMI) before pregnancy. This BMI can be obtained by dividing body weight (in kg) by height squared (in m). Here is a short benchmark:
If your BMI is normal (18.5 to 22.9), then your weight gain during pregnancy normally ranges from 11.3 to 15.9 kg
If your BMI is less than normal, then your weight gain during pregnancy normally ranges from 12.7 to 18.1 kg
If your BMI is more than normal, then your weight gain during pregnancy normally ranges from 5.0 to 11.3 kg
If judging at a glance based on gestational age and fundal height only, the size of your fundal height is indeed relatively small for the gestational age. However, this information alone is not enough to determine whether your pregnancy is still normal or not. This fundal height can be smaller than the gestational age due to many factors, such as fundal height measurement errors, miscalculations of gestational age, breech fetal position, the fetus has come down to the upper pelvic door, small fetus, and so on. Because of the many possible causes of this, confirmation is needed by a more accurate examination, for example by USG.
So, you should check with your obstetrician directly to see if your condition is normal or not, and what is the best treatment that needs to be done.
Hope this helps ...
