Breech Baby Hip Dysplasia
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
How common are cord accidents/prolapse/compression with footling breech at+after 28 weeks of pregnancy? is footling breech dangerous during pregnancy?
26 weeks pregnant. What means: placenta anterior , site low lying ,presentation breech legs extended ? Thank you
Anterior placenta: Tis is describing where the baby's placenta is implanted on the wall of the uterus - yours is low lying, on the anterior, or belly button side of the uterus, and is in a breech position - head up, body down - that is ok at 26 weeks. The anterior low-lying placenta could be a problem with bleeding in labor, called placenta previa - please discuss with your OB for more information ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
37 wks pregnant, AF index 8, placenta grade 3, fetal lungs mature, weight 3 kg, cephalic, head 4/5 in pelvis. Cervix 0.5 cm open. When to expect labor?
27wks pregnant. Cervix monitored+on progesterone pessaries. Bub breech kicks down low feels like shes kicking my cervix. Can this cause cx dilation?
Crevix dilatation: The simple answer is yes, but don't be too concerned. I have two twin daughters age 8. They were delivered 7-8 weeks early and had a combined birth-weight of 2 kilos (about 4 lbs). I could hold each of them in the palm of my hand. They have been thriving since leaving the hospital those many years ago and are gorgeous (not that I am biased). Be patient and you will have a wonderful daughter. ...Read more
Im 26, my mother born w/ severe bilateral hip dysplasia corrected by surgery. Lifelong hip "catching" and clicking in joint, and pain. Poss dysplasia?
Now arthritis: Dysplasia correction involves cutting the femur and/or pelvis, and the changing the alignment to improve coverage of the ball by the socket. Dysplasia comes in various types and degrees of severity. Because the correction is rarely 'perfect', some symptoms can be present. Most patients develop degenerative changes later in life. (arthritis). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
1st baby 2year ago csection. 2nd pregnancy now13th week.Diagnosis:back wall placenta praevia totalis. What are the chances that it will move?
28wks pregnant. Found out at ob appt today baby is footling breech.Ob wants to monitor cervix fortnightly.Is this dangerous?Scared of cord prolapse?
OK to monitor: Though I wouldn't be so concerned about your cervix unless it were open or if there were concern about preterm labor, it is reasonable to regularly see your obstetrician for prenatal care. Ultrasounds to evaluate your baby's position and switch from breech to cephalic are important and just b/c it's breech now doesn't mean it'll be breech later. See your doctor ASAP if you have pain/discharge. ...Read more
4 month old hips are clicking. Never showed signs of hip dysplasia before. Is schedule for ultrasound in 2 wks. Does this mean he has hip dysplasia?
Not necessarily.: There are other reasons that a clicking sound or sensation might be noticed on a physical exam, so this doesn't mean your child has hip dysplasia. I know now much anxiety any parent can have when there's a health concern involving their child, but it's best to try to stay calm while you're waiting for a definite diagnosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can placenta previa move closer to rather than away from cervix over time? I had low-lying placenta @14w, marginal [email protected], partial [email protected]?
Pros/cons of c-section vs. assisted vaginal delivery? Baby persistently locked in posterior position, estimated 8lbs+.
Depends: That is a decision that would need to be made in the moment. Many women can deliver vaginally with no problem from the occiput posterior position. If the baby can not be delivered with pushing then options of forceps, vacuum and c section should be considered. The size of the baby, the shape of the pelvis, the position of head and the experience of the doctor are all important considerations ...Read more
Posterior lower uterine segment,to right. lower margin 8mm, from os.plasental maturity grade 2. gestation period 32-33 weeks'Can i have normal delivry?
There is a small cha: This depends on where your placenta is at 36-37 weeks and your ob gyn. Usually it is too dangerous to try to delivery vaginally if the placenta is closer than 1-2 cm from the os due to risk of placenta shearing off wall of uterus which would be very dangerous for your baby. It is possible that the placenta will grow away from the os as the uterus expands. ...Read more
Footling breech at 30 weeks.What are chances of her changing to cephalic? I have sme minor uterine synechiae near my cervix n scarring in cervix? :(
Depends- what did : your doctor say? In some cases, 'going on all fours' meaning a position that looks similar to doing the cat/or dog yoga position (without arching your back) on hands and knees will belly hanging down, can allow the fetus to have enough potential space to rearrange itself, its own positioning in the womb to not be breech, not necessarily an old wive's tale. Other times, u need the doctor to assist. ...Read more
Yes - but..: You may have pelvic adhesive disease and scarred endometrium. These could increase the risk of infertility and ectopic pregnancy or even miscarriage and preterm birth in future pregnancies. See an infertility specialist if unsuccessful in getting pregnant after 3-6 months and a maternal-fetal specialist if successful. Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily and best of luck! ...Read more

Placenta is fundo posterior, lying in upper uterine segment and showing grade 1 maturity.internal os is closed.cervical length approx 4.2 cm. 24 weeks?
Yes, possible!: 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.
