Abstract
Intrauterine fetal growth was followed in a prospective study of 654 consecutive singleton pregnancies. Ultrasound fetometry was performed in gestational weeks 17, 32, and 39, and then weekly until delivery took place. A total of 408 fetuses were examined in the 39th week and 55 investigations were performed in the postterm period. This enabled us to follow the intrauterine growth of the normal fetus both at term and postterm. We found that the intrauterine rate of growth continued constantly, even postterm, for the biparietal diameter, abdominal diameter, and femur length.
