We used separate linear mixed models with adjustment for potential confounders and a random cohort effect to estimate the change in birth weight (grams), head circumference (millimeters), and gestational age at delivery (days) associated with a 1-interquartile range (IQR) increase in surrounding greenness.
[13] Johnsen reported that gestational age assessment based on femur length was an equally robust method as using head circumference.
The concentrations of amniotic fluid kisspeptin (identified as IR in this study) were much lower than those reported for circulating maternal plasma (2).In contrast to maternal plasma concentrations, kisspeptin in amniotic fluid was not observed to increase with gestational age. These findings are perhaps unsurprising, given that a number of amniotic fluid biomarkers display different concentrations during gestation, compared with the concentrations in maternal serum (5).
The BPD remains the standard against which other parameters of gestational age assessment are compared [1].

Curiously, babies conceived 5 years or more after a birth were 20, 29, and 43 percent more likely to be premature, small for gestational age, or underweight, respectively, than were the babies conceived after 18 to 23 months, the researchers report in the April 19 Journal of the American Medical Association.
"Early separation, more commonly experienced by preterm and small for gestational age infants, may interfere with parent-infant bonding, although this is unlikely to be an important factor except at the extremes."
Further, there is limited published literature on the impact of gestational age on the agreement of INTERGROWTH-21st and local fetal growth charts in identifying SGA infants.
Gestational age was ascertained from the birth certificate's obstetric estimate of completed weeks of gestation and categorized as extremely preterm (20-27 weeks), early preterm (28-33 weeks), late preterm (34-36 weeks), and term ([greater than or equal to] 37 weeks) ([dagger]) (4).
Hypoglycaemia is typically noted in neonates who are large for gestational age (LGA) or small for gestational age (SGA) and those infants whose mothers had poor glycaemic control during pregnancy.
Small for gestational age (SGA) is a term most commonly used to indicate infants born with a weight below the 10th percentile for their gestational age.
Lubchenco and his colleagues published gestational age specific centile charts in 1963.
Weight and gestational age relationship parameter showed that 38.6% were Full term LBW (low birth weight) and 53.1% were Preterm AGA (appropriate for gestational age) whilst 8.0% were Preterm SGA (p-value 0.001).
Risks of chromosomal abnormalities, infectious diseases, and cardiovascular and respiratory conditions were all increased, compared with infants born to fertile mothers, in analyses of neonatal outcomes stratified by gestational age.
