Results Of Fetal Ultrasound 26 Weeks?
night . I want to ask . with my 26-week-old pregnancy. is it normal if the fetal length is 21.40cm. abdominal circumference 16.40cm and weight 452gr?
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
At 26 weeks of pregnancy, the normal fetal body weight is around 750-890 grams with a fetal body length of 30-32.5 cm and maternal weight gain of 6.4-6.8 kg of maternal body weight before pregnancy. Based on the results of the ultrasound examination that you wrote down, the fetus looked weight and length less than the normal value. There are several reasons this can occur, namely before pregnancy, underweight or very thin mother, lack of nutrition of pregnant women, there is an error in calculating gestational age or estimated weight or length of the fetus, or because there is a delay in fetal development (for example due to placental disorders so that disturbed nutrient intake in fetus).
You do not despair, keep trying and think positive. Eat nutritious foods, which are high in calories and high in protein. Consumption of food supplements, especially folic acid and iron. Control routinely according to the schedule set by your obstetrician.
Thus hopefully useful.
