Afi 5cm 32 weeks pregnancy?

Afi 5cm 32 weeks pregnancy?

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

Hi I'm 32 weeks pregnant and have really bad itchy gums they also are swollen and bleed soon as I brush them. Is it normal and what shall I do?

Hi I'm 32 weeks pregnant and have really bad itchy gums they also are swollen and bleed soon as I brush them. Is it normal and what shall I do?

Yes: Due to hormonal changes during pregnancy your gingiva (gums) is much more sensitive to local irritants. Because of this they will become inflamed and bleed much more easily. You may also be prone to developing "pregnancy tumors".
You should see your dentist regularly so the hygienist can help to keep things in order. ...Read more

32 weeks pregnant and spotting, is it normal?

32 weeks pregnant and spotting, is it normal?

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

I am 32 weeks pregnant. I have had about 12 or more ultrasounds. Is this safe for my baby?

Yes: Hopefully, the ultrasounds were all performed for medically indicated reasons. However, ultrasound has been proven safe in fetal evaluations. In early pregnancy we take care to limit the amount of time an embryo/fetus is examined and adjust the power settings as low as possible. These are additional precautions to further improve the safety of a test already shown to be safe. ...Read more

I'm 32 weeks pregnant and know a girl who is 27 weeks but is due around the same time I am. Why is this?

I'm 32 weeks pregnant and know a girl who is 27 weeks but is due around the same time I am. Why is this?

Not correct.: As normal pregnancy is deemed to be 280 days or 40 weeks, you are not due on the same day eater you are 5 weeks apart. Sounds like a case of bad math. It may be for other medical and or obstetrical problems that your friend is scheduled to be delivered early which corresponds with your due date but this is not the same as “being due.” ...Read more

32 weeks pregnant. Detected cord around baby's neck in today's usg. Should I be worried? Anything I can do to reverse it?

Try not to worry: Baby's move so much, that cord's around the neck are not uncommon. While you can't do anything to reverse it, you can keep track of your baby's well being. Your doctor has likely explained kick counts to you. You can keep track of how often the baby moves, which is always a reassuring sign. I would also assume that your OB will be keeping a close eye on baby as well for any signs of distress. ...Read more

I am 32 weeks pregnant and have had herpes for the past 2 1/2 years. What is another alternative to veltrex that I can take and is safe.

Zorvirax: Zovirax (acyclovir) ointment or cream can be applied to any outbreaks during pregnancy topically. Systemic (oral) medications are best not used in pregnancy at this time. If you have an outbreak past 35 weeks (lesions on the vulva) please tell your OB so that a potential vaginal delivery does not cause a transmission of the virus to the infant. ...Read more
