Needs monitoring: Larger than average babies are a concern although they may be perfectly normal. Don't jump to conclusions at this early stage because estimating weight can be very imprecise, but it is something to recheck as you get farther along. ...Read more

5 per hour: Babies live in 45 min sleep/wake cycles. They move less when they are sleeping and then more when they are awake. Most patients can feel at least 5/hr when they concentrate on it. Lying down brings the uterus closer to your abdominal wall making it easier to feel. ...Read more

Will likely flip!: At 25 weeks, babies in utero are moving all over the place. Generally, they line themselves up in the last four weeks or so - into a head-down presentation. I've seen a few situations where babies have actually flipped from head-up to head-down during labor! there are variations in the way a specific uterus is made that will encourage a baby to stay in a transverse lie. Ask your doctor! ...Read more

EFW is normal!: Perhaps my answer would be improved if i knew more background regarding your pregnancy. There must be some reason why you are getting scanned at 25 weeks. As far as the efw, it is in the normal range at about 35%ile. The ac, by my estimation, is at about the 10%ile. As far as "what should I do" - you need to follow your ob's recommendations and ask for reassurance from them as well! ...Read more

You won't know. : I believe you mean you are concerned if your baby is born with hermaphroditism. The results of an amniocentesis would show the karyotype and sex of a baby. An ultrasound will reveal the gender by 16-20 wks. Transgender is a state in which a person identifies as a member of the opposite sex. This will not show up on prenatal screening, and you won't know until after your child grows older. ...Read more
