I dont know what fetal biometry is?


Hello ladies!
I just got my ultrasound pics back and a letter talking about the babies history... There are 4 things that are written here and i dont know what they mean.. i was hoping some of u ladies would know. i totally nderstand if you dont as it looks a lil bit like docs language. Anyway what does this mean?

Fetal Biometry is as follows:

BPD: 41mm
HC: 156mm
AC: 127mm
FL: 28mm

Anyway, any help would be fabulous!

BPD: Biparietal Diameter (diameter of head)
HC: Head Circumference
AC: Abdominal Circumference
FL: Femur Length (bone in leg)

These figures are used to estimate the gestational age of your foetus

(Only know because I was looking it up yesterday because it was on my pregnant cousin's notes lol)

It's the calculation of biometric percentiles at various gestional ages. ie the different growth measurements that tell them how far along you are gestation wise. How many weeks pregnant you are.

BPD: Biparietal diameter
HC: Head Circumference
AC: Abdominal Circumference
FL: Femur Length

Ello

Biparietal Diameter (diameter of baby's head)
Head Circumference (self explanatory)
Abdominal Circumference (self explanatory)
Femur Length (thigh bone)

All measurments that they take to see that baby is growing at the right rate.

BPD: 35 mm
HC: 130 mm
AC: 111 mm
FL: 21 mm

aww! arnt u all lovely and smartie pants! hehe
i was 18 weeks 5 days but on the letter it says 18 w 2 d and when i was looking at the ultrasounds it says that the FL is 19 w 4 d.
so i know the date i conceived and we have gone by that, i conceived on the 5th of april and that makes me due on the 4th of jan.
so the way i figure it out is that every friday i am a week further, eg this week i am 20 weeks... i just thought iwould clear all that up.
So are those measurments alright for a baby boy?
