The Baby Is Bigger At 8 Weeks’ Gestation?
, I want to ask this, r nI am 8 weeks pregnant, r nBut the size of the baby in my womb is already 35mm r nIs it okay if my baby grows faster ??
Congratulations on your pregnancy. When the gestational age reaches 8 weeks, there are several changes that occur in the fetus, including:
The length of the fetus reaches 16mm, can be smaller or slightly bigger The nose and eyelids begin to appear The tail at the back of the embryo begins to disappear Earlobe begins to form Bone and cartilage begins to grow The placenta begins to develop In this case the size of the baby is bigger at gestation 8 weeks is not necessarily an abnormality. It is too early to conclude a large fetus at only 8 weeks of gestation. A repeat examination 2-4 weeks later is required to monitor fetal development. Is the gestational age calculated by the formulation of the first day of the last menstruation? Does the doctor also calculate the gestational age from the results of the ultrasound examination?
I suggest that you carry out regular pregnancy control with an obstetrician at least once a month so that the condition of the fetus and pregnancy can be monitored properly. The development of the fetus will continue to be monitored with ultrasound examinations and maternal health checks every month. If later the fetus is larger than the gestational age, the obstetrician can provide treatment and advice that is right for you.
Meanwhile, you should meet the daily fluid and nutritional needs of pregnant women by consuming healthy and nutritious foods and drinking 2 liters of water / day. Don't forget to get enough rest, regular light exercise, and monitor your weight gain. Take a pregnancy supplement given by your doctor as directed by your doctor.
