What Is The Normal Height Of The Fundus In The Third Trimester?
… my pregnancy is 37 weeks .. fundal height 27 .. he said the fetus is too big … you have to reduce the carbohydrate … what’s right ??
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. There are many measurement methods that can be done to estimate the gestational age and fetal weight, one of which is by knowing the height of the fundus. But this is not just one, there are various formulas that can be used.
Regarding your question, the fundus height of 27 cm for 37 weeks' pregnancy is not normal. But normal sleep is not excess, but lack. Because, with a fundal height of 27 cm, the estimated fetal weight is in the range of 2100-2400 grams. Meanwhile, normally at the age of 37 weeks, the baby has reached a weight of 3000 grams or more.
So here to avoid confusion whether the actual condition you are experiencing right now is too small, too big, or normal, we suggest doing a re-examination with an obstetrician if you were new to the midwife. If previously it was in the obstetrician, this time look for those who use ultrasound in their examination. Because the examination by calculating the fundus is still less accurate when compared to USG. For example, a large stomach does not always mean the fetus is large behind it. In certain conditions, the fetus may be small, but excessive excess water. Fundal examination will not be able to detect this, but an ultrasound examination can. Therefore, to be able to find out what really happened to you and what is the best treatment, we strongly encourage you to see a gynecologist for an ultrasound examination.
Meanwhile, because we also don't know your status, just eat the ideal portion, not too much and not too little. Consumption of cooked food, make sure there is plenty of nutrients in the food you consume, avoid cigarette smoke and pollution, consume vitamins and pregnancy supplements, prepare for labor by putting the items you want to take to the hospital in a small suitcase, and have them checked immediately doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
