Placental growth during pregnancy was studied serially by ultrasonographic measurement of placental area in 50 primigravid women. Placental area at a menstrual age of 150 days was compared to infant birth weight. Small placental area at a menstrual age of 150 days was significantly related to low infant birth weight (< tenth percentile of birth weight for gestational age). A "warning limit" of placental area at midpregnancy was calculated. If placental area was equal to or smaller than this… CONTINUE READING
