IUGR

Fetuses failed to reach own growth ?. Growth in utero is ?, many end up ???, some don’t. Many stillbirths or fetuses distressed in labour are of ‘?’ weight. If fetus ? determined to be ?kg at term and delivers at term weighing 3kg = ????, may be ? dysfunction. Similarly an ill, malnourished, tall adult may weight more than a healthy short one. I.e a proportion of IUGR babies do not appear to be SFD.
