The Cause Of High Fundal Pregnancy Does Not Increase When Gestational Age Has Increased?
Hello, I want to ask about the high fundus of my pregnancy. Actually, I’m not too worried about my pregnancy because according to the midwife, the fetus’s heartbeat is normal and the baby is healthy. However, when observing the mother’s health book u0026amp; the child from the midwife fundal high pregnancy I did not increase still the same as the examination in the previous month which is 22cm. My pregnancy is now 30 weeks. I want to ask whether my fetus is okay? And what anticipation should I do? Please answer yes …
Thank you for the question.
There are many ways that can be done in assessing the development of the fetus in the womb, one of them by measuring the height of the uterine fundus (TFU, the highest part of the uterus). If it's true that your uterus is 30 weeks old, the normal height of the fundus is slightly above the navel, or if it is made in centimeters, then it is about 28 to 30 cm.
If your TFU at the age of your womb that has stepped on 30 weeks only reaches 22 cm, then this condition may still be reasonable, but it might not. There are several factors that can trigger this condition, for example inaccurate measurement of TFU, inaccuracy in calculating the age of the womb, the position of the transverse baby, small size baby, oligohydramnios (small amniotic fluid), and so on.
Ideally, assessment of fetal development through TFU measurements is confirmed again by more accurate examinations, for example by ultrasound. That way, then it can be ascertained, whether the condition of your fetus is still reasonable, or does it really need special treatment. So, you should check yourself directly to the doctor or obstetrician.
In the meantime, you should not panic. Just make sure you always eat a variety of foods that have a balanced nutritional value (especially those rich in calcium, iron, carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and other nutritional sources), drink enough, don't smoke, don't take medicine carelessly, get enough rest, consume vitamins given by a doctor on a regular basis, and also regularly control your obstetric condition to the doctor every month.
Hope this helps ...
