How common are cord accidents/prolapse/compression with footling breech at+after 28 weeks of pregnancy? is footling breech dangerous during pregnancy?
C/section: After a failed cephalic version the baby is typically delivered by c/section. An external cephalic version, where the doctor tries to turn a breech baby on its head is not without risk and is typically done in the OR with the entire c/section team present to be able to do an immediate c/section. ...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
Lam pregnant at 28wk. gestational by twin one is cephalic and 2nd is breech..can delivered normally?
Can't say now: There is time for both to change presentations which may alter delivery plans. There are also a number of potential problems with twin pregnancy that can come up urgently and require change of plans. Only half of twin pregnancies make it past 36 weeks and most of them require C-section delivery. If all things become favorable you might deliver from below, but don't expect it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
28 wks pregnant, previous c section, placenta anterior, no acretta now- placenta is 4cm above c section scar. Could acretta still develop at this pt?
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. Follow w/ US. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Transverse is that: A transverse fetal position is just that, baby is sideways in the womb. Sometimes the wall of the uterus has a fibroid or the shape of the chamber is more like a heart than an egg, with a ridged outgrowth that prevents baby from assuming a head or bottom down position. This transverse position will interfere with a normal delivery & generally lead ti a c-section. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Can placenta previa move closer to rather than away from cervix over time? I had low-lying placenta @14w, marginal previa@20w, partial previa@28w?
Breech: A small percentage of fetus' r breech in the 3rd trimester. Presentation is based on fetal movement. Sometimes a baby is breech because the bony structure of the pelvis is contracted and never allows the fetal head to become engaged in the women's pelvis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Anteverted,bulky gravid uterus,single intrauterine gestational sac 2.7 cm gestational age 6 weeks 6 days no fetal pole is this OK?or a miscarriage?
Depends on situation: If your initial cs was due to big baby/small pelvis & you face the same with the next delivery a vbac may be unwise.If the initial cs was for breach or monitor irregularities & your pelvis is considered adequate by the ob, a vbac may be a reasonable choice. Discuss this with the OB & see what what your options are. ...Read more
