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 more

What is transverse fetal position?

What is transverse fetal position?

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 more

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?

Blighted ovum: A gestational sac without a fetal with a gestational age of almost 7 weeks is most likely a blighted ovum (non development of the fetus). Most likely with result is a miscarriage. If not you may need a D&C. Follow up with your gynecologist in 1-2 weeks. ...Read more

How does a breech presentation affect labor and delivery?

Cesarean section: In this country, most breech presentations are delivered by cesarean section. The risks to the baby during a vaginal delivery are too high and most physcians, myself included, are no longer have the skills for a vaginal breech delivery. ...Read more

10 weeks transvaginal ultrasound baby heartbeat is 183 what about gender of baby?

10 weeks transvaginal ultrasound baby heartbeat is 183 what about gender of baby?

20 weeks for gender: Domea: the gender of the baby is usually seen at the time of your full anatomy scan which is 18-20 weeks. Sometimes it can be seen sooner or sometimes the baby's position and other factors keep us from seeing it even when you are at the right gestational age. The heart rate is not a good predictor of the baby's gender. ...Read more

What individual fetal measurement holds accuracy (represents true gestational age) longest in pregnancy (fl, ac, bpd, hc)?

What individual fetal measurement holds accuracy (represents true gestational age) longest in pregnancy (fl, ac, bpd, hc)?

Must use averages: I don't believe that any single measurement is most accurate throughout pregnancy. It is usually the averages that are taken. The most accurate measurements are actually in the first trimester in the way of the crown rump length in terms of predicting the estimated date of delivery. ...Read more

Pros/cons of c-section vs. assisted vaginal delivery? Baby persistently locked in posterior position, estimated 8lbs+.

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

Describe the features of a breech delivery and its complications.?

Breech delivery: Basically means delivering first the baby butt then the head. It is very risky because head can get trapped inside the uterus and also hypoxic episodes are more prone in this case of delivery. Head is the largest part of the baby so maternal pelvis may not accomodate the head. Today in civilised world no one delivers breech unless the baby butt is out and you can't do a cesarean. ...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?

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

If till 35 or 36 wk of pregnancy baby is in breech position. Can baby still change its position. Can verginial delivery possible in breech babies?

If till 35 or 36 wk of pregnancy baby is in breech position. Can baby  still  change its position. Can verginial delivery possible in breech  babies?

Breech presentation: At 35-36 weeks there is still time for your baby to flip and become cephalic (head first). However after 38 weeks or so, it is very unlikely that your baby will flip. If your baby is breech at that time, a c-section is usually scheduled. ...Read more

Is delivery at 33 weeks considered preterm?

Is delivery at 33 weeks considered preterm?

Yes.: Any delivery before 37 weeks is considered preterm and has significant short and long term consequences. A 33 week delivery is not desirable, but is much better than a 28-32 week delivery, meaning most infant should survive intact. ...Read more

Hello doctor.Iam 26 weeks pregnant and I have stage 2placenta previ.Does position of placenta predicts the gender?

Hello doctor.Iam 26 weeks pregnant and I have stage 2placenta previ.Does position of  placenta predicts the gender?

Nope: A grade 2 placenta only describes the maturity appearance of the placenta on ultrasound. A previa is a dangerous condition that requires c-section for delivery to avoid hemorrhage, fetal loss, or death. Gender is a different topic but this can be seen on us when repeating your scan @ 32-34 wks to see if your previa has moved away from the cervix. Please discuss this with your OB & take care. ...Read more

What are the risks of vaginal vault prolapse during pregnancy? 27w pregnant breech baby

Not a problem: Vaginal vault prolapse in pregnancy is not harmful, but can be uncomfortable. Ask your ob/gyn md to place a pessary into your vagina to lift up the cervix and reduce the prolapse problem until after delivery. ...Read more

Lam pregnant at 28wk. gestational by twin one is cephalic and 2nd is breech..can delivered normally?

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 more

TVS measured cervical length [email protected] to [email protected], fFN+, cramping/backache, spotting. Normal shortening of CL? What's the risk of preterm labor?

TVS measured cervical length 56mm@20wks to 38mm@27wks, fFN+, cramping/backache, spotting. Normal shortening of CL? What's the risk of preterm labor?

Very real risk: The positive fetal fibronectin suggests that the risk is very real and treatment to prevent/stop preterm labor +/- steroids to hasten lung maturity should be considered based on your particular case. If one is available I would guess your OB wants to consult a maternal-fetal medicine specialist ( a doctor who specializes in high risk pregnancies). Best wishes to you and the baby. Hope this helps. ...Read more
