What Are The Signs Of Pregnancy When Viewed From Ultrasound?
I was already late 1 week and then the story went to the midwife, the midwife said that during the ultrasound my uterus had enlarged to 4.55cm but “the fetus has not come down” so said the midwife. I want to ask, are things like that normal? Because the midwife said her pregnancy I have not reached 6 weeks
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your confusion. But the fetus will not go down at 6 weeks gestation. The midwife's words will come into context when talking about major pregnancies, approaching 37-40 weeks, because at that time the fetus should go down to the pelvis to be born. But if it's still less than 6 weeks, there should be no term fetal decline.
At the age of 6 weeks, the examination should only be to find out whether there are pockets of pregnancy or not, and whether the fetal heart rate has been seen or not. If at least one of the two things is found, then you must be pregnant. However, if not found both of them, then late menstruation that you experience may be caused by something else and that must be sought out and dealt with.
Our advice, because of the potential for misunderstanding, you should check with your obstetrician, considering that obstetricians are actually more competent than midwives in this regard. With direct consultation, misunderstandings can be avoided and you can clearly know your condition. now. Meanwhile, keep on doing a good lifestyle for pregnancy by avoiding coffee first, getting enough rest, avoiding cigarettes and alcohol, multiply eating vegetables, fruit and sufficient fluid needs, and consumption of pregnancy supplements that are sold freely by reading the rules of use listed. So, hopefully answering your question.
