32 Weeks Pregnant In Children
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

Im 32 weeks pregnant and my baby is too small if she hasnt grown in 2 weeks they will deliver her will she be ok?
Growth restriction: The failure of a baby to grow at the expected rate in later pregnancy can be caused by multiple issues. I've seen as many as 3 knots in an umbilical cord ( kid did ok eventually) and kids with a placenta the size of a bagle.There can also be issues with the baby. It makes sense to plan an early delivery if baby is not growing, more direct methods to supplement nutrition is available after birth. ...Read more

Im 32 weeks pregnant and my baby measure small 3.1. What that's mean and what can I do for my baby to gain some weight.
Ask your OB!: I assume this was confirmed by ultrasound. Many factors can contribute to a baby who's "small for gestational age." Poor maternal nutrition, some medications, a placenta that's not functioning properly, health conditions like smoking and high blood pressure are all possibilities. It's critical that you discuss this with your OB so that the cause(s) can be identified and, hopefully, treated. ...Read more
32 weeks pregnant & a couple of times i see like sparkling dots in my eyeside, what causes it & is it normal for this to happen?
Going on 32 weeks pregnant and having pains really low in front and in my back back and forth. Pains aren't extreme. What does it mean?
A few possibilities: You may feel a variety of symptoms related to the baby/just being pregnant. One might be stretching of ligaments that support the uterus; baby movements may be uncomfortable; alternatively, you may be having uterine cramping. This must be differentiated from pre-term labor. Even if your pain isn't extreme, it seems to be happening frequently enough that you should be examined by your ob. Call them. ...Read more
Yes but: You may want to look for signs baby is ready to wean. If baby makes short work of feedings, & or you begin chasing baby around to do a feed, you s/he may be ready. If baby still craves the nurturing & lingers, i see no reason you can't overlap the babies. I would avoid abruptly stopping baby 1 when #2 comes as there will already be some displacement fear. Good luck. ...Read more
Yes, sort of...: If a woman has 28-day regular cycles, and is 34 weeks pregnant (34 weeks gestation) now, then she "got pregnant" 32 weeks ago. That means she was 2 weeks pregnant (2 weeks gestation) on the day she actually got pregnant. However, if she doesn't have regular 28-day cycles, these estimated dates have to be adjusted. ...Read more
Not really.: Spotting in pregnancy is not normal, but doesn't necessarily suggest a problem. If you are hurting or the baby is not moving like it should, you should call your OB or go get checked.

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
