Asymptomatic Bacteriuria Preterm Delivery
Bleeding and Cntrxns: Previa: Placenta overlies the cervix/birth canal. Gr 1 means placenta is close, Gr 4 means it's directly overlying/blocking the baby's exit -- high chance of preterm labor & bleeding; you'd need a C/S at 36-37wks. More common in woman w/ hx of C/S & smoking. Not much you can do but wait. If dx'ed early, the uterus still grows/stretches and a placenta can migrate away even in 3rd tri.

It can.: Amniocentesis involves introducing a fine needle into the pregnancy sac to retrieve some amniotic fluid for fetal dna testing.

How common are cord accidents/prolapse/compression with footling breech at+after 28 weeks of pregnancy? is footling breech dangerous during pregnancy?

At that point, aggressive measures to 'detach" the placenta may result in massive hemorrhage and the resultant post apocalyptic diagnosis of placenta accreta. ...Read more
What is the question: Are you HIV + and asking if your baby can be hiv+? Or are you concerned that delivering vaginally will subject you to risk of HIV infection? If the latter, don't worry. You do not get HIV in that fashion. Only sexually or by blood transfer (transfusion, needle sharing, transplants, etc.) rephrase your question. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Anterior placenta previa with placental lake seen at 28w ultrasound, 2 D&Cs & no c-section hx. Any risk of placenta accreta? Best time to deliver?
Placenta Previa: Placenta previa occurs when the placenta is covering the opening of the cervix. Vaginal delivery is possible in mild cases of previa. Placenta accreta is a different condition where the placenta gets "stuck" to the uterus. While the risk of accreta increases when you have previa, that risk is low if you have never had a c-section before. Follow-up with your obstetrician regarding delivery dates. ...Read more
Will vaginal spotting/bleeding stop placenta previa resolves? Does recurrent bleeding in 2nd tr indicate that placenta previa is unlikely to resolve?
2 questions here: Answer to number one, not always. Answer number 2, not always. You will need periodic ultrasound monitoring to follow this issue and, most importantly, if you have significant bleeding, pain, or preterm labor get to hospital right away. Don't plan any trips. You need to be very careful or this may threaten the lives of both you and your baby. Follow your OBs advice and make sure you follow up. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
