Premature Infant | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the condition diagnosed?

Often, a woman knows how many weeks she has been pregnant. There are other ways to tell the age of the baby. The growth of the unborn baby can be estimated by examining the pregnant woman's womb. Pregnancy ultrasound is a test that uses sound waves. This test can be used to estimate the age of the unborn baby. After the baby is born, the healthcare provider can estimate the baby's age by doing a physical exam.
