Cephalopelvic Disproportion Hemorrhage In Mother
Are you referring: to fetal lobulation of the kidneys? That is a normal anatomic variant, not related to an in utero twin. ...Read more
My baby died in womb at 40 weeks + 4 days. No umbrical cord wrapping or placenta seperation. Does cephalo pelvic disproportion cause death. ?
Sorry for your loss: Tragically, many fetal deaths after 40 weeks remain unexplained. Cpd means that the baby gets "stuck" after a very prolonged labor. If your baby died before labor started, then it wasn't cpd. If you decide to have another child, give yourself enough time to grieve and heal, and then work closely with a perinatologist (high risk OB specialist) who can do extra specialized testing and monitor well. ...Read more
What kind of incision for delivery of singleton in transverse lie with anterior placenta previa? Will low transverse cut risk hemorrhage/uterine tear?
Hyst'omy MANDATED: hello Annie-_777 I am not an OB GYN but I have had a lot of experience which tells me that a lower abdominal incision (Pfannen-Stiel) is a better incision in almost all situations. This situation of a transverse lie and an anterior placenta praevia is a very hazardous situation because you need the baby out and the cord clamped within seconds of opening the uterus so choose a very skilled surgeon. ...Read more
Hemorrhage, lower then average hormones, fetus smaller then normal, gestational sac 2 weeks behind fetus. Chances of trisomy or other abnormalities?
Maybe,miscarriage is: More likely. Not knowing how many weeks pregnant you are, it's difficult to give you more specific information. Usually the above consistent with early pregnancy loss. It is best to follow closely with Gyn/OB. Also try to avoid air travel or long car rides, trips in remote areas until this is settled. Miscarriage is potentially serious and can result in significant blood loss, so call 911 4 help ...Read more
It depends: Placental abruption is a condition in which the placenta peels away from the inner wall of the uterus prior to the baby's delivery. When this happens, the baby (and mother) can suffer from excessive blood loss. Additionally, the baby loses its ability to get oxygen. The baby's survival depends on how quickly he can be delivered after abruption occurs. ...Read more
Anterior placenta previa with placental lake seen at 28w ultrasound, 2 D&Cs & no c-section hx. Any risk of placenta accreta? Best time to deliver?
Placenta Previa: Placenta previa occurs when the placenta is covering the opening of the cervix. Vaginal delivery is possible in mild cases of previa. Placenta accreta is a different condition where the placenta gets "stuck" to the uterus. While the risk of accreta increases when you have previa, that risk is low if you have never had a c-section before. Follow-up with your obstetrician regarding delivery dates. ...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?
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
Can a fetal doppler detect womb sounds, maternal heart beat, and umbilical cord (abdomen the size of a 26 week pregnancy) with a pseudo pregnancy. ?
Yes: Yes it can, but in the hands of a well trained obstretician they can also be life saving. ...Read more
The result of transvaginal scan in 7w2d pregnancy.I have subchorionic hemorrhage of 1.7 x 2.42 x 1.12cm, lower uterine pole..How danger is that?
Maybe OK since early: A subchorionic hemorrhage/hematoma is a bleed between the pregnancy and the uterine wall. It is an US finding, that if coupled with vaginal bleeding, can potentially increase the risk of miscarriage/preterm delivery, but w/out vaginal bleeding, it's hard to say. Size matters; worse if bigger (covering ~50% of placental bed) or occurring later. It can heal itself, but you just have to wait/watch. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What are the risks of disseminated intravascular coagulation after a single fetal demise @ 28 weeks.This a triplet pregnancy - trichorion/triamnio?
Depends on cause: Babies don't need kidneys much during pregnancy because the placenta does that job.They do make pee that ends up as amniotic fluid. The right amount of fluid creates extra volume in the womb that pushes back against the muscular womb & allows the lungs to develop.(important) Things that stop or limit fluid formation includes absent kidneys or blockage in the outflow. Such defects can be a problem ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm O+, my husband is AB+. What's the likelihood of our baby having neonatal anemia? High risk pregnancy w/ maternal anemia and planned c-section cutting through anterior placenta previa.
Possible: There is some possibility of an A/O or B/O reaction with jaundice and hemolytic disease but that part of this is usually minor and easy to manage. An OB with quick hands can limit the other issue. I would try to relax and figure out what your life will be like with 3 kids running around. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
