On Wednesday evening, at my antenatal appointment, my fundal measurement was 32.5cm, I was 36+5. Concerned about the small measurement, I was sent for an ultrasound.
Yesterday afternoon I had said ultrasound, bub is measuring on the 20th percentile, which is within normal.. However; this percentile was bought up majorly by an out of proportion abdominal circumference.
The measurements were:
BPD - 86.2mm - below 5th percentile
HC - 313.0mm - 9th percentile
FL - 64.1mm - below 5th percentile
AC - 327.3mm - 75th percentile!
Does anyone know if the larger AC measurement is representative of anything being wrong?
Does having a larger AC to HC make it harder to birth? Will there be an increase risk of shoulder dystocia?
Would a c-section be a better option? Has anyone been in the same position? What was the outcome?
I don't have an appointment with doctors until Tuesday and I have so many questions!
