Addressed all parameters in detail ma'am
Hello ma'am and welcome.
Thank you for writing to us.
I have gone through your query and shall help explain each aspect of the query to you in detail. But I would also like to request you to write back to me with any specific queries that you have ma'am, I would be more than happy to address them.
For now, the explanation is as follows:
-CGA (corrected gestational age
): This is the calculated age of your pregnancy
ma'am. Which is found to be 28 weeks when this scan was conducted
-BPD: Biparietal diameter is the transverse diameter of the head of the developing fetus. A BPD of 6.4 cms puts your baby's developmental age at approximately 26 weeks, which is lesser than expected. At 28 weeks of gestation, the normal range of BPD should be from 6.8-7.6 cms.
-HC: Head circumference of 25.2 cms puts your baby's developmental age at 29 weeks, this is fine. At 28 weeks of gestation, the HC should be anywhere between 24.3-28.3 cms.
-FL: Is the length of the longest bone on the human body called the femur
. FL of 4.6 cms puts your baby's developmental age of 25 weeks, this again reports a growth retardation. At 28 weeks of gestation, the FL should be anywhere between 5.0-5.8 cms.
-AC: Abdominal circumference of 20.9 cms puts the baby's developmental age at 25 weeks, this once again reports a slight growth retardation. At 28 weeks of gestational age, the normal range of AC should be anywhere between 21.7 - 26.7 cms.
I am sorry to inform you about the growth retardation; but please also note that it is normal to take at least 2-4 measurements to confirm normal growth or growth retardation ma'am. So please be patient and wait for other measurements to be conducted after a certain duration of time.
From the Doppler study, the most important abnormality has been reported, which is the severely reduced diastolic flow. This means that there is an increase in resistance of blood flow from the baby to the placenta. Strict bed rest
therapy is usually advised in such cases to prevent serious complications. Please speak to your doctor and seek attention at the earliest to improve blood flow to and from the baby.
All other parameters are fine, and of no concern ma'am.
I hope you find my response helpful ma'am. Please do not panic, stay calm and please stay in touch with your doctor. Please try to take as much bed rest as possible, it is my humble request.
God bless you and your baby.
