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

Can your cervix move forward if stuck behind baby head (head is lower than cervix) @ 40 weeks? Will the cervix dialate at all behind baby head

Can your cervix move forward if stuck behind baby head (head is lower than cervix) @ 40 weeks? Will the cervix dialate at all behind baby head

Yes: It appears that you are referring to a posterior cervix which is normal. In a first pregnancy, the baby usually descends early into the pelvis and the cervix being posterior is behind the baby's head. As labor ensues, the cervix will dilate and eventually become mid position and is applied to the baby's head in preparation for delivery. ...Read more

Baby is in the head down position at 29 weeks. Is she likely to stay there? Does this increase the possibility of preterm/early delivery?

Baby is in the head down position at 29 weeks. Is she likely to stay there? Does this increase the possibility of preterm/early delivery?

Yes and no: Since most babies deliver from the head down position it is likely to end up that way but change is possible. No, being head down does not mean you are more likely to deliver early. Be aware of your sensations and check out any early contractions with the OB to be sure you know when to come in for an evaluation.Early labor can be stopped so baby has a better chance to avoid newborn intensive care. ...Read more

Adult teeth growing in over baby teeth? Our son seems to have an adult tooth that is growing in front or a baby tooth without the baby tooth falling out. Is this something i'd need to schedule a special dentist appointment for? .

Adult teeth growing in over baby teeth? Our son seems to have an adult tooth that is growing in front or a baby tooth without the baby tooth falling out. Is this something i'd need to schedule a special dentist appointment for?


.

Yes!: You can't have 2 teeth in the same spot at the same time. So, if the baby tooth has not fallen out when it should the adult tooth will erupt in the wrong place. Once the dentist has removed the baby tooth the adult tooth may move into the space by itself, or it may need to be guided by an orthodontist. ...Read more

Say a straight erection is a 90 degree angle. Mine leans to the left. Middle of my erection is an 80 deg angle. Left edge is 70. Normal?

Say a straight erection is a 90 degree angle. Mine leans to the left. Middle of my erection is an 80 deg angle. Left edge is 70. Normal?

This sounds to be: within normal range. Many men have a slight "bend" or angle especially noticeable when the penis is erect. The theory is that the chambers in the shaft of the penis-- that engorge with blood when erect--have developed unequally in size. When it is severe and the angle is 45 degrees or more, especially if painful, an evaluation is warranted for Peyronie's disease. Stay well:) ...Read more

If till 35 or 36 wk of pregnancy baby is in breech position. Can baby  still  change its position. Can verginial delivery possible in breech  babies?

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
