According to this author, fetuses can be classified as: fetuses of adequate weight for gestational age (AWGA) --weighing between the mean weight of fetuses in the control group more or less the standard deviation; fetuses of low weight for gestational age (LWGA) body weight less than the mean weight of fetuses in the control group minus the standard deviation of the same group; and high weight's fetuses for gestational age (HWGA)--body weight above the mean weight of fetuses in the control group plus the standard deviation of that group.
In the case of the full-term children, those who presented low weight for the gestational age (LWGA), were also excluded from the study.
