The Results Of HPL Calculations Between Calendar Counts And Ultrasound Are Different?
Good afternoon, I want to ask. R nI am currently pregnant for the first time r nHpht January 29 2018 r nInitially I ANC went straight to Sp.Og. in South Kalimantan. After the ultrasound it said my hpl was on 05 november 2018 (I tried to calculate the round calendar with the same result, namely 05 november 2018) r n r nWhen I checked with another doctor. I checked at Sp.Og. in the jogja area .. on 12 April 2018 it said UK was 11w (if calculated by round klnder it is still 10w?) and hpl changed to 29 October 2018 r n r nThen I controlled it again then on May 08 2018 at UK ultrasound becomes 16w .. r nAlready the difference is again … if it is calculated using a round calendar with the date of the cellphone, it should still be 14? r nWell that is my question .. r nFor my case, my fetus is too big or how can you be 2 weeks apart? r nThank you. Please enlighten me
Hello Inti, thank you for your question
Many prospective parents are confused about calculating gestational age and estimated day of birth (HPL). This is reasonable considering that until now there is no definite method to ensure conception in the uterus. There are various ways to estimate gestational age and HPL, here are some of them:
Calendar method, which is based on the first day of the last menstruation. This method is quite accurate for women who have regular menstrual cycles (about 28 days). The average pregnancy lasts for 40 weeks or 280 days, you can add 40 weeks from the first day of your last menstrual period. Doctor's examination, namely ultrasound by an obstetrician. However, you need to understand, ultrasound examination is also an estimate based on various measured parameters. The earlier the ultrasound examination is performed, the more accurate the estimate of gestational age and HPL will be. You don't need to be confused about the differences between individual examinations. Most deliveries take either two weeks or two weeks later than expected. Make regular monthly checkups to the gynecologist you usually see. Entering the final trimester of labor (28th week or so), the doctor may recommend a more rigorous evaluation every 2 weeks, and nearing labor (36th week or so), examinations are carried out every week to monitor for signs of labor.
Suggestions for you at this time:
avoid and manage stress with relaxation management, rest is enough to consume foods rich in nutritional drugs or supplementation according to doctor's instructions. Hopefully this is useful.
