ABSTRACTThe early diagnosis of intrauterine growth restrictions constitutes a useful tool to plan effective preventive actions, as well as, to implement systematic actions in primary health care. There are different criteria and indicators for this purpose and the anthropometric criterion of the Latin American Federation of Societies of Obstetrics and Gynecology distinguishes among them; it assumes 2.5 percentile of fetal abdominal circumference as a cut -off point, below which it is considered suggestive of restriction, although this is applied in the third trimester of pregnancy, when the time to take actions is few. This study is intended to show the construction and validation of a new indicator called fetal weight gain, confirming the identified diagnoses in the third trimester, but allowing greater opportunities of medical intervention when is applied in the second trimester of pregnancy.
