Can a baby move from vertex to breech position after 38 weeks? he is in vertex position from the very beginning.currently he is at -1 station

Can a baby move from vertex to breech position after 38 weeks? he is in vertex position from the very beginning.currently he is at -1 station

Maybe/unlikely: You will know the final position when you go into labor & changes do occur. However, it is much more likely earlier in pregnancy when the amniotic fluid/baby ratio is higher & there is more room for them to maneuver. If He has maintained a steady position for 38 wks, it is likely to stay that way. However, I wouldn't make any bets on it. ...Read more

Breech presentation: At 35-36 weeks there is still time for your baby to flip and become cephalic (head first). However after 38 weeks or so, it is very unlikely that your baby will flip. If your baby is breech at that time, a c-section is usually scheduled. ...Read more

Im 25 weeks pregnant. Diagnosed with placenta previa totalis. Baby is in breech position. Is there a chance of my placenta migrating and baby rotating?

Im 25 weeks pregnant. Diagnosed with placenta previa totalis. Baby is in breech position. Is there a chance of my placenta migrating and baby rotating?

Yes there is!: As the uterus grows your placenta may migrate up, and the baby may turn to the vertex (head down) position. There is no guarantee. You need to be watched closely. If previa still exists and/or baby is still breech at term, you'll need a c section. Avoid intercourse or anything else in the vagina while you have a previa. This could cause severe bleeding. Be seen for any bleeding. Good luck. ...Read more

20 weeks pregnant baby in cephalic position is this normal?

20 weeks pregnant baby in cephalic position is this normal?

Yes: Hi! Cephalic presentation means that the head is down which is the right position for a normal vaginal delivery. Since it's only 20th week, baby still has some room to move but most likely will not turn around. Your ob will continue monitoring baby's position because it's also important for the vertex (top of head) to be the presenting part. Good luck. ...Read more

Our gyn said that our fetus gender is boy 18 weeks after preg. Using his clinic ultrasound. He said 100% as baby cooperated and legs open. Is it 100%?

Our gyn said that our fetus gender is boy 18 weeks after preg. Using his clinic ultrasound. He said 100% as baby cooperated and legs open. Is it 100%?

While nothing: Is 100%, if the u/s saw a penis and scrotum, only a very masculinized vulva could mimic. It sounds like he/she OB is certain that your fetus has male gender. You will know for sure after birth. What is the rush? Curiosity and satisfaction have a price, and this isn't worth it. ...Read more
