What is Biparietal diameter in pregnancy?
BPD (biparietal diameter), the diameter of your baby’s head. HC (head circumference), the length going around your baby’s head. CRL (crown-rump length), the length from the top of the head to your baby’s bottom, measurement taken in the first trimester.
What is biparietal circumference?
The BPD is the maximum diameter of a transverse section of the fetal skull at the level of the parietal eminences. It can be measured in a thalamic plane (ISUOG) or in a transventricular plane (NHS FASP).
What is the normal BPD at 34 weeks?
1. The relationship between gestational age and biparietal diameter was non-linear at p-value < 0.0001. The growth rate of BPD was 3.9mm/week between 13 and 16 weeks, 3.1mm/week between 17 and 25 weeks, 2.5mm/week between 26 and 29 weeks, 2.1mm/week between 30 and 33 weeks, and 1.6mm/week between 34 and term.
What is the normal BPD at 40 weeks?

How is Biparietal diameter measured?
The BPD should be measured on an axial plane that traverses the thalami, and cavum septum pellucidum. The transducer must be perpendicular to the central axis of the head, and thus the hemispheres and calvaria should appear symmetric. The calipers should be placed at the: outer edge of the near calvarial wall.

What should baby’s weight be at 34 weeks?
Week 34. Baby: Your baby measures about 19.8 inches from head to toe and weighs about 5 pounds. They grow more baby fat, becoming plumper. The baby is probably settling into the head-down position, although it might not be final.
Is femur length or BPD more accurate?
Femur length was found to provide a more accurate index than BPD for the entire range of gestational age considered. If an interval of approximately +/- 2.5 weeks is considered ‘satisfactory’, the accuracy of FL past the 31st week is not sufficient to justify its use.
