Delayed growth in womb of embryo around 6 month pregnancy by 15 days. Reasons?

Delayed growth in womb of embryo around 6 month pregnancy by 15 days. Reasons?

Two main reasons: If a pregnancy has accurate dating from early sonogram which is in agreement with lmp (last menstrual period) and one sees a greater than 2 week lag in growth from the expected, it could signal iugr (intrauterine growth restriction). This may be due to a placental problem or a genetic/developmental problem. Close monitoring of growth, amniotic fluid, and nst (nonstress test) is indicated. ...Read more

Afi 5cm 32 weeks pregnancy?

Afi 5cm 32 weeks pregnancy?

AFI 5cm: Afi stands for amniotic fluid index. An afi less than 5 cm is considered oligohydramnios. This needs to be followed very closely particularly if the baby is measuring smaller than average.

You also need to have a vaginal exam to make sure you are not leaking fluid. ...Read more

Would early ovulation causing early conception show in the gestational age since not all woman ovulate 14 days after lmp?

Would early ovulation causing early conception show in the gestational age since not all woman ovulate 14 days after lmp?

Yes, no, and maybe: Yes, if she knows how to adjust her counting based on the length of her cycles or on which day she usually ovulates. Yes, if using an ultrasound to do the dating, such as an 8-11 week ultrasound scan. No, if all she uses for counting is the first day of her last menstrual period and her periods are much longer or much shorter than 28 days. And, maybe it matters little, as all dates are estimates. ...Read more

Is it safe to have sex at 32 weeks of pregnancy? My previous child was born at 32 weeks. I'm currently taking progesterone shots weekly.

Is it safe to have sex at 32 weeks of pregnancy?  My previous child was born at 32 weeks.   I'm currently taking progesterone shots weekly.

Safe to have sex.: There should be no problem having sex at 32 weeks of pregnancy. It would probably be prudent not to try increased vigorous sex or unusual positions if you are not already used to it. Your previous delivery at 32 weeks has no effect on this pregnancy if all else is normal at this time. Good luck with the new family addition. ...Read more

33 wks pregnant irregular painless contractions,positive ffn test, 1 CM dilated, baby well into pelvis, 6th pregnancy,will i give birth early?

33 wks pregnant irregular painless contractions,positive ffn test, 1 CM dilated, baby well into pelvis, 6th pregnancy,will i give birth early?

Hard to say: The fetal fibrobectin test is much more predictive of the real condition, or the truth, when the test is negative, than when it is positive. A single positive ffn test result is not highly predictive of preterm labor and delivery, and since you are probably not in active labor from irregular contractions, it's hard to answer your question with confidence. See your OB regularly as directed ...Read more
