Ultrasound Examination Results Of 4 Months Of Pregnancy?
Good afternoon, I was pregnant 4 months ago the USG had the results of the ultrasound did not show the hands and head of the fetus, for the age of 4 months should the hands and head of the fetus be seen?
One of the tests performed during pregnancy is an ultrasound examination. With ultrasound the doctor can see the fetal heart rate, fetal movements, estimated fetal weight and fetal size, placental condition, amniotic fluid, umbilical cord, and detect the presence or absence of fetal defects early.
Fetal development can vary slightly between fetuses, but in general for 4 months the size is approximately 13 cm with an estimated fetal weight of about 140gram. The body of the fetus begins to enlarge to follow the head so that it is more proportionate, the face begins to appear, the eyes are starting to move, the mouth can start to close, the fingers start to form, and the hands begin to clench.
Ultrasound examination depends on the operator, the ultrasound device, and the condition of the mother (thickness of abdominal fat, bladder). In certain conditions doctors can recommend transvaginal ultrasound, or 4D or 5D ultrasound so that the condition of the fetus can be seen more clearly.
For now you should keep thinking positive first. Make sure you follow the advice of your obstetrician, keep up with your daily nutritional needs, take a pregnancy supplement according to the recommended dosage, and don't forget to routinely control pregnancy with your obstetrician so that your fetal development can be monitored.
Hope it helps you,
