In 18th week of pregnancy, standard value of BPD is 42 mm and FL is 27 mm. Your ultrasound scan report reveals slightly lower value than standard one. But we consider it within normal range.
Continue iron/ calcium supplements, protein rich diet, avoid long journey/ heavy work, maintain personal hygiene, take adequate rest and repeat scan in later months for detailed feto-placental well being. Do periodic check up and complete suggestive investigations.
Be well and wish for successful motherhood.
