-normal fetal heart rate is 120-160

FHT
-fetal heart tone

5

slow rate of fetal growth, most commonly related to inadequate placental perfusion
-infants birth rate is below 10th percentile on intrauterine growth curve

IUFGR/ FGR
-Intrauterine Fetal Growth Retardation
-Fetal Growth Retardation

6

uterus enlarges in a predictable pattern that provides info on fetal growth and helps confirm EDD

EDD,EDB,EDC
-Expected Date of Delivery/ Birth/ Confinement
