Q:

what happens when the abdominal circumference is lagging by a week in the 32nd week of pregnancy?



Rahul Manchanda

Good morning,
there are many inferences from your question
1) If abdominal circumference lags by 1 week from your dates in 32nd week there is is nothing to worry especially if the rest of the parameters are Also same.
2) If the rest of the parameters are fine and the abdominal is only lagging then it maybe an early indicator of IUGR
3) PLEASE remember you need to see your doctor who will see you in toto and not as a report or finding. There are many other factors also that are seen like the size of your tummy, baby weight, doppler findings etcetc it cannot be taken in isolation. keeping in mind everything your doctor will advise you regarding what to do and if it is significant. Please do see him/ her.
My best wishes. Regards

Hey hiee. 1st of all Congratulations on your pregnancy. Your belly size is small but just a week and I don't think that should be a threat. It could have happened possibly cause of the position baby must have taken at the time of sonography. This apart if you are still worried about it then I will suggest you to increase your calories intake and take rest that will help you put on weight. Btw , what your gynaecologist have to say about it?

Good doctors can tell the babies weight by their hands and weighing you, they don't need sonographies. contact healthy mother hyderabad, birth village cochin, birth bonds delhi.
