The Weight Of The Fetus Is Greater Than Its Normal Weight?
Good afternoon, when I was 10 weeks old, my fetus weighed 51 grams, even though if I looked at the normal weight table it should be 7 grams. What is the cause? For the length is appropriate, the head of the limbs are clearly visible. There is no thickening of fluid in the neck, Is there a way to normalize the weight of the fetus? Thanks. Healthy happy and success is always for Mr. / Mrs. Doctor.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Previously, of course, it needs to be ascertained first, whether your pregnancy is correct. If indeed your gestational age is correct and your fetus's weight is greater than its proper weight, then several possible causes are:
Excessive maternal weight gain (meaning that the mother eats too much and weighs during pregnancy increases too much) Mothers have diabetes (either since before pregnancy or gestational diabetes) Obstetricians who have an ultrasound must have done a more complete examination related to your weight gain and also other checks needed. We recommend that you follow the advice of your obstetrician regarding the condition of your pregnancy. If indeed you do an ultrasound at a midwife, sebainya do you do a re-examination to the obstetrician.
For now, you should better take care of the food you eat. You should eat foods that are well nourished, but pay attention to the portion and amount of food. Don't overeat. It is better to avoid consuming foods or drinks that are sweet or contain large amounts of sugar
