Abstract: Objective: This retrospective study is aimed to find the correlation between the fetal biophysical profile (BPP) test and maternal and fetal age in the second and third trimester among pregnant women in Sudan. Method: This study was conducted in Blue Nile state –Sudan in the Radiology department Aldamazin Hospital, Aldamazin specialized Center– Aldamazin and Aldamazin specialized Ultrasound Clinic during the period from October 2015 to December 2020. An abdominal U/S was performed for all pregnant women for 401 participants (168 males fetuses represent 41.9 % and 233 females fetuses represent 58.1 %) with gestational age ranged from 22 and 40 weeks. Result: the study results showed that the mean gestational age was 33.03±3.40 weeks, the mean maternal age, weight, height, and BMI were 29.72±8.79 years, 69.47±14.84 Kg, 161.39±18.81 cm, 27.26±6.61 kg cm2 respectively. There were no differences in fetal body movement, fetal breathing movement, liquor volume, and placental grading in different gestational age groups (P. value < 0.05), but there was a significant difference in fetal tone in different gestational age groups (P. value = 0.04)). Conclusion: There was a moderately significant correlation between the Gestational Age and fetal body movement, fetal tone, liquor volume, and score respectively and there was a weak significant correlation between the Gestational Age and placental grading, but no significant correlation between Gestational age and fetal breathing movement.
