Tips and Tricks

  • Enter the bare minimum information
    • can enter just gender, gestational age, and growth metrics, without dates, if desired
    • if only a gestational age is entered, the 50th percentile values will be displayed
    • if any dates are entered, all other dates will be deduced, if possible
  • Gestational age, enter in the form of ## #/7; e.g., 30 3/7 for 30 weeks and 3 days gestation
    • The Olsen 2010 paper reports measures for completed weeks of gestation -- i.e., from 23 0/7 through 23 6/7 weeks is considered 23 weeks completed gestation
    • In this program, the weeks gestation + 3/7 weeks (the median between 0 and 6 days) will yield the same results as the paper
  • Weight: grams are assumed. To enter pounds and ounces, enter #-#; e.g., 8-4 for 8 pounds and 4 ounces
  • Head circumference or length: cm are assumed. To enter inches, enter #"; e.g., 20" for 20 inches
