Very early pregnancy: Would need additional information to answer your question completely but your pregnancy is very early and difficult to see. Please consider another ultrasound in about four weeks

What can I do if my abdominal ultrasound shows that my baby is in the breech position?

Discuss your options: If the baby is breech at an early ultrasound, this has no significance. If it is in the last 3-4 weeks, then you have some choices to make. The baby can be turned to head down by a procedure called a version. This works about half the time. Some doctors will advise a c-section, and a few may even still offer a vaginal breech delivery depending on the circumstances. The baby might even turn itself!

Should I get a vcug for my 2yr old daughter after first UTI at 24mths? Dr wants ultrasound & vcug

Not necessarily: If your daughter is potty trained then no further workup is necessary. If your daughter is not potty trained current thinking allows one urinary tract infection without fever without a workup:
ultrasound and vcug. If there is a strong family history of severe urinary tract disease then i would recommend the work up after the first urinary tract infection.

What are the predisposing factors in gestational diabetes mellitus?

Weight/Genetics: Diabetes often runs in families, and 70% of women with gestational diabetes will get diabetes later in life. Major risks include obesity (body mass index >30), older maternal age, past history of gestational diabetes, and ethnicity (african americans, native americans, south asia/india, hispanic, pacific islanders, and some from the caribbean). Be sure to get re-tested 6-12 weeks after delivery.
