37 weeks and my fetus had dropped but I still feel so breathless?

37 weeks and my fetus had dropped but I still feel so breathless?

Breathless: At 37 weeks, even with descent of the fetal head into the pelvis, the body of the fetus is still occupying a large part of your abdomen, and restricts the full movement of the diaphragm muscle, preventing full respiration (limiting oxygen from getting into your blood stream. This causes shortness of breath and is very normal at this stage of pregnancy. ...Read more

What should I do? I'm 37 weeks pregnant and unfortunately I still need  to abort the fetus. What should I do? hope you could help my worst problem please

Too late to abort: 37 weeks means this fetus is fully (or almost fully) mature. Any attempt to abort this pregnancy at this point risks major problems for you as well as the death of a baby. You need to arrange for the completion of this pregnancy. If you cannot keep the baby, then you need to arrange for adoption. You need to see your physician (obstetrician) and a social worker for help ...Read more

Dates are not: accurate. Ultrasound is saying baby is older than you think it is. AFI is the amniotic fluid index. It is a measure of how much amniotic fluid is present in the uterus. There are tables that say how much should be present for such and such a date. This seems a little low. Talk to your doctor and find out. The baby may be born sooner than you think ...Read more

At 37 weeks pregnant TSH is 5.5 and 3t4 is .77 how does that effect my fetus?

At 37 weeks pregnant TSH is 5.5 and 3t4 is .77 how does that effect my fetus?

It is probably ok: A slightly elevated TSH indicates mild thyroid failure. Early in pregnancy, even that can affect the fetal development, although changes are probably minimal. At the 37th weeks, the fetus has a fully functioning thyroid, so that slight hypothyroidism in the mother is not expect to cause any effect. ...Read more

I am 37 weeks/4 days pregnant & had my bpp done today.I was told my baby has dropped.How far should the fetus' head drop into the pelvis before labor?

All the way: When you start labor, the baby's head will eventually drop fully down into the pelvic bowl, which is the entrance to the birth canal. This will be happening over the next several weeks. You should have your "go bag" packed and sitting by the door. It won't be long now! :-). ...Read more

Mother 37 weeks large fetal head within physiological limit , without having  having diabetes or anamoly on 3d scan &  head present.Be delivred by which?

in the US: We do not measure head size but estimated fetal wt and in the us if u do not want to labor u can have an elective csection, please discuss with your ob, another sign is is the head down in the vagina or is it floating in the pelvis , if the head is not dropping that is usually a sign it may be too large for you, everyone has a different size limit, your doc should be able to determine that. ...Read more
