Hello, welcome to healthcaremagic. Ultrasound is not comletely rellied to assess fetal impaired growth. There are other parameters as well to assess fetal growth according to the gestation period. It can occur in several chromosomal anomalies as well as maternal malnourishment. It can not be predicted about the child's growth and delivery without knowing the real facts.

Radiologist Dr. Sockalingam.M's  Response
First u need to confirm that there are no anomalies in the baby.
Later on should see hows each measurement & wat is the ratio of disparity to come to a conclusion between IUGR -symmet/asymmet & Small for dates.
The growth chart & liquor is important to comment regarding the baby's growth.

Hello I am 33 weeks and 3 days pregnant. My dr ordered a growth us at 32 weeks. When I met with her today she told me that my baby has a prominent gallbladder (enlarged). She did not seem too concerned but ordered another ultrasound at 36 weeks. I am very worried and if it does show that his gallbladder is in fact enlarged what could that mean and would he have health problems or would he be normal? I have looked up a few things and it said something about a chromosomal defect associated with this. I am worried and just want to know the causes and what could happen.
