Dear {fetal_weight___name}

Thanks for using the fetal weight calculator. 

Below are the details you gave us on our website - 

Your gestational age {fetal_weight___age_wks}
Your baby's weight per ultrasound {fetal_weight___yourwt}
Your baby's fetal weight seems to be     {fetal_weight___fetal_wt_check}    

If the baby seems to be underweight then it could be due to many factors -  
When the estimated fetal weight is below the 10th percentile for babies of the same gestational age, the baby is said to be small for gestational age.
Fetal growth can be hampered by various factors -
Some Factors relate to the mother’s health
- High blood pressure
- Chronic kidney disease
- Advanced diabetes
- Heart or respiratory disease
- Malnutrition, anemia
- Infection
- Substance use (alcohol, drugs)
- Cigarette smoking

Some factors are due to pregnancy
- Decreased blood flow to the uterus and placenta
- Placental abruption (placenta detaches from the uterus)
- Placenta previa (placenta attaches low in the uterus)
- Infection in the tissues around the fetus
Some factors could be due to the developing baby (fetus)
- Twin pregnancy
- Birth defects
- Chromosomal abnormality

Because of these factors, the baby may not be able to receive proper nutrients and oxygen from the mother during pregnancy. The growth and the development of the cells and tissues of the fetus are slowed or retarded, which is called intra-uterine growth retardation.

Some babies may be genetically small, as the parents are also small built. Thus, a single ultrasound measurement may not be able to definitely diagnose growth retardation, except in cases where the weight is below the 10th percentile mark. When the doctor spots a pattern of slow growth in the baby or a decreasing weight in the baby through the pregnancy, she may see you more frequently, in order to monitor the weight of the baby, fetal well-being and the amount of amniotic fluid."

If the baby seems to be Overweight

Large for gestational age is a term used to describe babies who are born weighing more than the usual amount for the number of weeks of pregnancy. LGA babies have birthweights greater than the 90th percentile for their gestational age, meaning that they weigh more than 90 percent of all babies of the same gestational age. Some babies are large because their parents are large; genetics does play a part. Birthweight may also be related to the amount of weight a mother gains during pregnancy. Excessive weight gain can translate to increased fetal weight.

By far, maternal diabetes is the most common cause of LGA babies. Diabetes during pregnancy causes the mother's increased blood glucose (sugar) to circulate to the baby. In response, the baby's body makes insulin All the extra sugar and the extra insulin production can lead to excessive growth and deposits of fat, thus, a larger baby.

If the baby is within the normal limits then you seem to be doing just right 

You are doing a great job. Continue to eat healthily, walk daily and be stress-free. Enjoy your pregnancy
