What individual fetal measurement holds accuracy (represents true gestational age) longest in pregnancy (fl, ac, bpd, hc)?

What individual fetal measurement holds accuracy (represents true gestational age) longest in pregnancy (fl, ac, bpd, hc)?

Must use averages: I don't believe that any single measurement is most accurate throughout pregnancy. It is usually the averages that are taken. The most accurate measurements are actually in the first trimester in the way of the crown rump length in terms of predicting the estimated date of delivery. ...Read more

Is gestational diabetes hereditary?

Yes, but partially: Gestational diabetes, which is often a precursor to type 2 diabetes, has a strong hereditary genetic component. The tendency for the body to be insulin-resistant and insulin-deficient (leading to high sugars) are often transmitted in the genetic make-up. However, gestational diabetes is also strongly related to other non-hereditary factors like age, weight, physical activity levels, and diet habits. ...Read more

What percent of mothers with gestational diabetes deliver their babies prematurely?

What percent of mothers with gestational diabetes deliver their babies prematurely?

Depends On Control: There is no single digit answer you can apply to an individual patient. One brazillian study in 2011 found that 14% of 400 women delivered prematurely, but the rate really depends on how well the mother controls her disease, other issues like preeclampsia, and the reason for delivery (poor control can cause other problems for the mom/baby that could require a cesarean section before 38 weeks). ...Read more

Big baby, birth defects caused by diabetes? What defines macrosomia?

Big baby, birth defects caused by diabetes? What defines macrosomia?

This means that the baby is larger than 89% of the babies of same gestational age. Furthermore"macrocosmic" fetus are at a higher risk of shoulder dystocia (difficulty of delivering shoulders after the head is out) and hypoglycemia or dropping blood sugars shortly after delivery. ...Read more

Does monochorionic diamniotic twin pregnancy mean that my babies are identical?

Does monochorionic diamniotic twin pregnancy mean that my babies are identical?

Yes: While the diagnosis may be suspected, it can only be confirmed by close examination of the placentas or genetic testing before/after delivery.
