What does my pregnancy ultrasound report suggest?

Q: I am a 27 years old pregnant female who underwent ultrasonography (USG) at the 32nd week. The report states mild asymmetrical intra-uterine growth retardation (IUGR); intrauterine pregnancy in cephalic presentation; placenta found body posterior, not in the lower segment, grade III maturity with placental calcification; adequate liquor and amniotic fluid index (AFI) - 11.6 in-cm. The estimated foetal weight is 1682 gm. What does this report suggest?

A:I hope the scan was done by an expert sonologist. Please make sure your blood pressure remains normal, have a balanced diet and take adequate rest. Mild growth restriction (in your case of 1 week) is usually due to placental insufficiency - most common cause is pregnancy induced hypertension. You will be monitored more intensely hereafter. Keep a track of baby's movements - if weak or decrease by 50% or more inform your doctor immediately.
