Why Is The Fetus 5 Months Old Still Under The Navel?
Good night ,, I want to ask, I am currently 5 months pregnant but my fetal position is in the belly button, is that okay? “And what is the cause of my fetus in the belly button? Thank you ..
One way to assess the growth and development of pregnancy is to measure the height of the uterine fundus (the highest point of the uterus) so that measurement of fundal height is also one method of assessing gestational age. Normal fundal height at 5 months of gestation (second trimester, around 21 weeks) is around the center.
Although it can be used as a benchmark for gestational age, in fact this examination can not definitely assess the gestational age so that it can give results that are not in accordance with your gestational age. Aside from the measurement error in gestational age, the difference in fundal height can also be caused by disorders in pregnancy such as IUGR.
You should immediately see a doctor because this condition can affect the condition of your fetus. Your doctor will ask for a history of your complaints, determine the gestational age through counting the first day of the last menstrual period and conducting an ultrasound examination. Your doctor can also recommend blood tests to determine the cause of your complaint and provide appropriate treatment if there are conditions that cause fetal growth disorders.
