Fetal development size does not match the gestational age? These reasons are the key

Many pregnant mothers will have a situation where the fetal development size does not match the gestational age. Some are too large, some are too small, but as long as they do not match the gestational age parameters, pregnant mothers will be very worried. In fact, the size of the fetal development does not match the gestational age. These reasons are the key, and the pregnant mother can only worry if she takes the right medicine.

Influence of maternal differences

The size of the fetus is actually related to the difference in the mother's mother. For those pregnant mothers with petite bodies, most of their fetuses are relatively small and their weight is light. And those who are tall and a little fatter, the fetus is either normal or a little bigger. In addition, the nutritional intake of some pregnant mothers is comprehensive and rich, and the fetal development is better. And for those pregnant women who are partial eclipse and malnourished, her fetus will be smaller and lighter. Therefore, it is not accurate to judge the fetal development size only by looking at the gestational age parameters. If the fetus is all normal and its nutrition can keep up, then the pregnant mother should not be too concerned about whether the fetal size is consistent with the gestational week.

The impact of pregnant mother's own disease

During pregnancy, the pregnant mother suffers from certain diseases and can also affect the size of the fetus' development. For example, if the mother is anaemic, the fetus will be lighter and less developed. As another example, pregnant mothers with gestational diabetes will cause the fetus to develop too fast and weigh more, and it is also prone to the risk of huge children. Therefore, this also reminds pregnant mothers that the fetus is small and anemia, hurry to make up.

Influence of pregnant mothers' living habits

If pregnant mothers often stay up late after pregnancy, eating irregularly, especially those who smoke or drink, will also affect the normal development of the fetus. Moreover, smoking and drinking not only affect the size of the fetus, but also cause adverse effects on the fetus. Therefore, it is recommended that pregnant mothers with these bad habits, for the sake of the fetus, should actively change these bad habits after pregnancy.

Impact of placenta function

When my classmate was pregnant, I found that the placenta was too thick and small, and the fetus was always smaller than the gestational age parameter every time I checked. At that time, the doctor told her that the main function of the placenta is to provide fresh blood to the fetus. If the placenta is too small, it may lead to insufficient blood supply to the fetus, and nutrition will not keep up, which will affect the growth and development of the fetus. If the placenta function is good and the blood, oxygen, and nutrients obtained by the fetus are sufficient, it will develop well, otherwise it will easily develop smaller, which is inconsistent with the number of gestational weeks.

Impact of umbilical cord function

Similar to the function of the placenta, the umbilical cord is also an important channel for delivering blood and nutrients to the fetus. If the umbilical cord is knotted, there are water sacs, hematoma, and only a single umbilical artery, it will affect its transmission function, which will lead to fetal growth retardation. When this situation is checked, the fetal size generally does not match the gestational age.

Therefore, when the pregnant mother finds that the fetal development size does not match the gestational age, don't worry blindly. Let's compare the reasons first and see if it's a normal phenomenon or if we need to supplement nutrition. If it is a week or so smaller, it is normal. After seeing the cause and taking the right medicine, pregnant mothers can worry a lot.
