    What does my scan report indicate?

Question: Hi I am 28 weeks pregnant and I want to know when my next scanning needs to be done to assess the growth of the baby?
Answered by Dr. Deepti Verma 42 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Growth scans recommended every 4 weekly

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Growth scans are generally recommended every 4 weekly in a normal uncomplicated pregnancy.
So, if you had a scan at 28 weeks, then the next growth scan should be done at 32 weeks to assess the growth of the fetus.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
