Doppler..at 16 wks? (earliest..10 wks)

Nice try visitor!!!!!!!! grin grin
The answer is C..........
Confirming a clinical dating parameter at the earliest gestational age possible is the most helpful!!!!!!!!
....18wks is generally the earliest that a primigravida woman reports quickening.
.......Fetal hrt. by doppler at 16wks is not v.helpful coz 6wks passed since the fetal hrt tones cud've first heard with doppler.(10wks)
.........Reporting of quickening by a multigravida woman at 20wks is not helpful coz 4 wks have passed from when a multigravida shud first detect quickening(at 16wks).
........Fetal hrt tones with a fetoscope can be heard by 20wks and so, heer 4 wks have passed.......
........Measurement of uterine fundal ht. at 26wks is not helpful ,coz fundal ht.is most accurately measured during the 1st trimester........

Hope that was clear!!!!!!!!!!! grin grin

sad
is this true?
How could fundal hight be most accurate during first trimester when the uterus is still in the pelvis and hardly felt.

hey mccee...... grin
Reporting of quickening by a primigravida at 18wks gestation is the most helpful parameter, for calculating accurate gestational age, in the given list..........this is the answer...........there's no correlation between ur q and my ans???????
:roll: :roll: ............wat do u wanna ask????????
And for any pregnant lady, the uterus is palpable PER ABDOMEN, by 12wks..........and before that, if u wanna examine her. do a V/E or P/V...........

My dear during first trimester you have to do pelvic examination for that and that really give accurate measure of dating.
