Abstract

The purpose of this descriptive study is to investigate the relationship

between the placenta thickness and estimated fetal weight in normal

pregnancy women in Gezira state .The data collected in Wad Wadni Teaching

Hospital and Abo osher Teaching Hospital from May 2016 to November

2016 .Fifty pregnant women in second and third trimesters were scanned by

ultrasound machine Toshiba -Power . Fetal weight was estimated by

measurement of biparietal diameter (BPD) and abdominal circumference

(AC). Placenta thickness was measured in alongitudinal section at the point of

insertion of the umbilical cord.

The data is analyzed by using Package Statistical for Social Sciences

(SPSS). Results of the study showed that there is strong positive correlation

between placenta thickness and estimated fetal weight (r=0.873) and (p=0.01)

and both are firmly increase with fetal age .The results also showed linear

regression between them. The study showed that the fetal weight increase by

60 gm/mm of the placenta thickness. Researcher noticed that with same

placenta thickness there were different fetal weights. However, the normality

of fetal weight and fetal development can followed by measuring Placenta thickness.
