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. Typically, as long as the baby has normal anatomy and is growing, we try to hold off delivering until after 37 weeks. You also need to have a vaginal exam to make sure you are not leaking fluid. ...Read more

What Does posterior placenta in Upper uterine seg with grade 2 maturity in 32 weeks pregnancy scan indicate? Does it mean a c section will b needed

OK and no: C-section is done through the anterior approach. Knowing that the placenta is posterior means it is safe to do a routine c-section but does NOT mean it needs to be done. Vaginal deliveries are always better than C-section unless there is an indication for the C-section. Ask your OB about these indications. ...Read more

Eat healthy: Frequent small, healthy meals are good. Meaning if you feel more hungry, go for the fruits, veggies and low calorie foods. Stay away from the fatty foods as this will add unnecessary weight and calories to you diet. As long as baby is growing well, you don't need to worry about eating more than you usually would- they get the calories that they need! enjoy your last few weeks of pregnancy! ...Read more

32 weeks pregnant and spotting, is it normal?

32 weeks pregnant and spotting, is it normal?

Depends: If you had intercourse in the last day or so, possible. However, I would call your OB provider tonight and alert them of the spotting. He/she may want you monitored for labor and I would do at least a urinalysis to exclude infection. Most OB providers have an answering service. Call the office even if closed to see if the call goes to the service. ...Read more

I am 32 weeks pregnant. I have had about 12 or more ultrasounds. Is this safe for my baby?

Yes: Hopefully, the ultrasounds were all performed for medically indicated reasons. However, ultrasound has been proven safe in fetal evaluations. In early pregnancy we take care to limit the amount of time an embryo/fetus is examined and adjust the power settings as low as possible. These are additional precautions to further improve the safety of a test already shown to be safe. ...Read more

32 weeks pregnant. Detected cord around baby's neck in today's usg. Should i be worried? Anything i can do to reverse it?

Try not to worry: Baby's move so much, that cord's around the neck are not uncommon. While you can't do anything to reverse it, you can keep track of your baby's well being. Your doctor has likely explained kick counts to you. You can keep track of how often the baby moves, which is always a reassuring sign. I would also assume that your OB will be keeping a close eye on baby as well for any signs of distress. ...Read more
