Abstract: A descriptive study aimed to investigate the relationship between the placental thickness and estimated fetal weight in normal Sudanese pregnant women in order to develop a linear equation that can be used to estimate the placental thickness. The data collected in Omdurman Maternity Hospital (Omdurman) from November 2014 to February 2015, Fifty-Two pregnant women in second and third trimesters were scanned by ultrasound machine Toshiba-power vision-6000. Placental thickness was measured in a longitudinal section at the point of insertion of the umbilical cord. the variables used to establish this study was mother age, BPD, fetal Age, AC, and estimated fetal weight which having mean SD of (26.396yrs), (64.2319.9mm), (26.827.56 age), (235.490.35mm) and (1497.71387.4gm) respectively. And the mean thickness of placenta was (32.99.2mm). A strong direct correlation were noted between all parameters and placental thickness.
