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.
